Well, I am not keen on entering my dock in reverse either
The problem at this point is
1) entering head in when the wind is on my back or pushes me into the fairway
2) leaving dock under same conditions
Here is why reverse is important. As I was leaving (and coming back, same thing really) this time - I needed to turn to stbd (when leaving, to exit from the dock and turn to the open water, when coming back - to enter from open water and turn to my dock).
When leaving, I obviously have to use reverse
When coming back, I tend to need it if wind is pushing the boat too fast, so I can slow down. Either way, once I do that - I start turning to port. So, I can't go back or slow down without turning the wrong way.
Anyway, I looked at all the comments on where the prop walk should be taking me and certainly this differs from reality, so something is wrong.
Can it be that my transmission is "reversed" (i.e. essentially the gear for forward and gear for reverse are somehow switched)? It sounds silly but I am out of ideas on this one. I will try again this weekend and watch the prop wash more, but so far this is what I've seen and behavior is well repeatable.
In confined spaces because of this I end up either having to always turn around that way, or try to turn more clockwise during forward motion than reverse takes me (which is not always pretty).
