Re: Backing up (or not)

To the OP, You cant surf when there are no waves and you cant sail when there is no wind so why would your try and make your boat do something it physically cant. Learn the characteristics of your boat and always be one step ahead. Tip, forget about your rudder in reverse, the prop has more effect that the rudder, use the prop walk to your advantage.
