casey1999 is on a distinguished road
Using a tiller, one thing that has helped me is the following- note this only works in reverse. When reversing, sight down the tiller (looking towards the stern of the boat) and aim it like you would a rifle. Where you aim is approximately where the boat will head. Does not work in forward as direction is reversed.
