We should be able to use the o/b for all you listed above though, right (the Panama canal, tough marinas, etc)?
It would be tough to use for the Panama Canal, as it probably isn't going to be powerful enough to drive the boat at the speeds they canal authority require. Also, in situations where the seas are heavier or there are wakes from other boats to contend with, the prop will probably ventilate a lot more than you'd want.
On the modern marina/tight fairway note, I have to tell you our current marina is notorious for this. They have crammed more slips into that place than you could believe as it is a condo/slip owner marina... it's tight in that place and we are used to that at this point..
Yup... they do that to maximize the money they can make.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
