Seems like you don't have enough room for the rudder to take effect when reversing. My boat takes a good few moments to start responding in reverse by first racing the engine and then slowing it down when the boat starts moving in reverse. Or? maybe your over propped? I've heard that 3 & 4 blades will walk the boat sideways allot more.
