I don't know, If I ever get a chance on a full keel boat I'll find out. Still, this wasn't about motoring in reverse which could be a good discussion on another thread. From all that I know and have seen, and using prop walk to help spin my boat 180 in tight quarters, is actually easy now, it wasn't 5 years ago.
