I must admit I'm a bit confused as to what all the fuss is about.

My full-keeler backs just fine.. although it might not steer brilliantly in reverse, in strong winds it's often the only way I can get out of the slip, since without a good grip on the water the bow just gets pushed sideways if I try to go ahead. I took that as being pretty typical of full-keelers.
