You are right, prop walk relates to pitch
and to prop efficiency.
Certainly prop walk can be useful sometimes, but pretty disturbing in many other occasions, for example when you have your mooring
place the other side of the prop walk direction. After some initial times you get used to not having prop walk (like you have done to accomodate having it) and you will fully enjoy the benefit of not having it.

Be careful what you wish for. With that prop walk, I could turn sharply to Starboard, make docking
alongside a breeze, with no prop walk it's tougher.
I think "walk" is associated with pitch, greater the pitch, the greater the walk.
For the airplane crowd, it's not "P" factor
