Re: Beastly boat to manuever

Because of prop walk, and the offset prop position, you will be able to turn sharper in one direction than the other. Plan for this on the approach. This is something you can check out while doing circles in forward and reverse. Just remember to do as many circles in one direction as the other, or you will get dizzy.
