I think what you need to do, in this instance, is to just go out in an open area where you can just experiment and practice going in reverse (wouldn't hurt if you had something you could let float in the water to give you a sense of perspective).

After watching you leave Morehead City last fall, it appears to me you aren't familiar enough with the boat to fully know what it's going to do. That's not meant in any negative sense, just an observation. So just go out, and try different things in reverse, until you find something you're comfortable with.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
