Re: Harbor 20 - electric motor steering tips?
With the prop behind the rudder, offset to starboard and fixed in position, you frankly have very little to work with. You can only steer that boat when you have enough speed that the waterflow past the rudder over takes your prop walk.
You need to reset any expectations about low speed boat maneuvering, and focus on getting on or off a dock manually...
Certified...in several regards...
