she seems to want to go to starboard what ever I do.....
Thats her natural walk, mine walks to starboard also ( which matters not as I have 300yds behind me ) about all you can do is keep the steering midship, and motor/walk it out until you have enough flow pass the rudder to get some steerage, nutural the motor, turn to port then use short brust of reverse, clear your dock and gear foward, hard over and gas it, kick that stern over

Silent prayers aren't a bad idea either
