Lines are led back and although it is a fin keel spade rudder this cofiguration is chartered widely with little trouble.

I have a 3/4 keel skeg hung rudder and little control in reverse and suffer from envy when I watch a Bene slalom in reverse.
I chartered one of these last year. Easy to handle and it sailed much better than I expected. Member here MarkofSeaLife is cruising on one. You could do much worse.
