I am probably late to the pass as usual but have just read an article explaining why boats with a single engine and twin rudders are less manoeuvrable moving forward at slow speeds.
When turning hard a port or starboard to berth alongside the pontoon by inclination I always push the throttle forwards a tad to increase speed and help turn the boat .
It seems that the science is that the wash from the propeller is moving clear astern rather than washing over the rudders while with a single rudder it washes over it giving it a grip to improve steering at low speeds.
I hope any of you are enjoying our new found freedom and others are enjoyed the holiday to catch up on prep for launching.
