I have long keel heavy displacement 60 ft 1920s sailing yacht. With furled sails etc we have a lot of windage, and my berth is parallel to with often heavy winds from all directions. For berthing, I use prop walk quite a bit, and note that there are many articles on boat handling with a single screw. However no one talks about the nuances of in-aperture systems. I am keen to refine my skills especially with prop orientation of different manuevres. It appears to me the same controls exist as if the prop was free in front of the rudder, but everything is less helpful. Can anyone advise or recommend a site to help.
