Re: Boat for Single-Handed

Personally, I feel it's easier to dock my 30 then the 23 I had. I can make the boat crawl, or just have enough power to match the current flow and ease the boat to port(still have it more difficult easing to starboard) using the propwash. The little boat.. was a PITA reaching over the transom for the engine, handling the tiller. bobbing all over the place (2000 lbs as opposed to 10,000 lbs)

Suggestion; Join a club or rent smaller boats and save money for the larger one.
