Re: Beastly boat to manuever

Rob - I'm moored right around the point in Noank - at Spicers. I did what you suggested- I went out on a quiet day and tried backing around the towboat mooring- people probably thought I was crazy - out there motoring around in circles backwards. I guess it's just going to take lots of practice. It would just be nice to go up to a dock to fill up with fuel and water - rather than having to lug it all out there in the dingy.

Thanks everyone for all your advice! What I wouldn't give to buy a few years of experience!

Paul K - thanks -where are you? I'd love to talk to some other H-28 owners.
