Hi all,

Great information here. I will try it this week. I just had to mention that I was bored and motoring around my harbor a couple of months ago when I figured that I would practice backing. I have a three-bladed folding MaxProp. Anyway, I motored in reverse all around my marina twice.

Got some great looks and comments from other boaters , but the experience is valuable.

Give it a try!

Cheers, Bill
