I do know this.
Well, FWIW, my old full-keeler goes in reverse under power just fine.. In fact, given the old girl's tendency to be blown sideways whilst coming into the marina at crawling speed, I find reverse allows me far more control than going forward.

A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
