Re: Staying behind the wheel
We had one short trip, 20 miles, that took us 10 hours. The waves were 8-10 feet and SQUARE. Coming from both dead ahead and dead abeam. The prop was coming out of the water as we tried to motor directly into the 35 knot wind. The only way to steer was to stand behind the wheel with our legs wide, all the way apart until our feet were braced against the sides of the cockpit sole.
