G So many people think of "prop walk", or that "swing to port" as
their enemy and sometimes it is, but it can be made to work FOR you,
just as often if not more so.

Using that prop walk was the only way I could get into one of the slips
I had a few years ago. I had to turn the boat around in only about a
foot or two more than it's length.
