OK, so I'm not very good at this - but I'm also willing to take some advice...
Toodle-oo! went back in the water today
and the moanoever required reversing off the truck and backing about 150 feet between two piers about a boatlength and a half wide. It was a little intimidating since the wind was strong - 20 kts, gusting 25. It was almost behind me - on the port side... probably about 200 - 210 degrees apparent.
So I come off the truck and the boat starts reversing towards port - and I have full starboard rudder on. I tried going with strong throttle and with very little throttle. It felt as if no matter what I did with the throttle, she kept coming to port. Three times I had to go forward to realign the boat with the jettys.
No drama, didn't hit anything, but I'd really like to know what I should have done differently in order to come straight out under those conditions.
Thanks for any and all advice.
