Ranger 28

We have had a '76 Ranger 28 for a few months now and are in love with it....except a few minor details. does anyone else find that it walks really fiercely to stbd when in reverse. i am a licensed captain, and have dealt plenty with "walking props", but the 28 rudder seems pretty big and i would think it would handle better with even a little water across it. anyone else experience this? we have a 20 hp universal and a 3 blade prop which are both 2 years old. anyone have any strong feelings towards folding props, and if so what size? thanks in advance,

Ben in Rhode Island
