Even more interesting is when the current suddenly increases big time. Until the boat catches up to the change, the rudder can actually works as in reverse.This will usually happen in a narrow channel between the rocks .ie ,Hidden basin,Roaring Hole, Surge N. Probably lots of other spots I haven"t yawed through yet. Hell with the waves, Rock are bad.
