Good observation, tenuki. I was down at the marina the other week and was actually surprised at the number of boats I saw with what was obviously damage incurred in docking. One of the best ways to learn boat-handling is on a under-powered boat, you never grow to depend on it. Engines that will not idle well are more of a manoeuvering problem than having an under-powered one. If one observes the average driver attempting to parallel park it is little wonder that ship handling is so poor.
