I did say that boats with horizontal shafts get almost no prop walk. It very much depends on the hull shape as well. The prop walk generally increases with an angled prop shaft.

Hmm. You're right. My full keeler's shaft comes out of "the deadwood" (actually just the steel hull) nearly "flat", whereas my fin keeler is a good 15 degrees below 90. I don't get propwalk with the full keeler, but I didn't notice to this point because I have been preoccupied with its less than effective ability to back down in reverse!

I use the "coast into the slip" method even more now, because the dynamics of a full keeler are very different than a fin keeler in both subtle and gross ways.

How I wish Propwalk could be switch-on to aid manoeuvre and switch-off when backing straight or to stop a forward movement. Any such luck ?
