I wouldn't be opposed to a thruster like the exturn, it's minimally envasive; Manuvering ahead in tight,windy places with a current is not too bad, but manuvering astern with the same conditions is a bit of a whiteknuckler, espeacially with a full keel

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
