Agree with Bill above that a Max prop will improve reverse performance - the blades are always in the correct orientation for thrust.

So theoretically you'll get some way on faster than with a michigan wheel.

Practice and planning ahead will help, but frankly some boats will simply refuse to cooperate. The good news is your slip mates will always be motivated to help you out upon arrival
