Our test boat reversed course in two boat lengths by leaning hard into the turn, smoothly bleeding off speed and never once pushing my passengers toward the outboard rail. When docking, you'll surely appreciate that the Surfhunter backs up with exquisite control, again due to the counter-rotating propellers. About the only factor I didn't like was the minor "wandering" the 25 exhibits at idle speed. Before the end of our sea trial, I had gotten used to it. And as soon as you boost the rpm slightly, it tracks straight and true.
