Prop walk - Catalina 30

A couple pointers;
Let the boat come close to a stop before putting the transmsission in reverse. Slowly add throttle as the boat gathers way aft. Once the boat is comfortably moving astern, put the transmission in neutral or let the boat engine just idle, and you will have more control in reverse. Three blade props should have less walk than 2 blades and more than a feathering prop.
