Ranger 28

I have had a Ranger 28 for the last three years or so. I love the boat, and how it sails, but I am getting tired of being at the back end of our PHRF fleet, so even if we win on handicap its dark and everyone else has gone home, so may be trading up soon. I have a very slim 2-blade prop, and get a huge amount of prop-walk in reverse (the stern swings to port). I've learned to make use of this to reverse into our slip starting out at about at 40 degree angle, but it does take some getting used to.
