Last time it happened to me (hardboat,50hp, pulley steering) I came in at about 6-8 knots with the motor locked central by roping it to the transom eyes and steering by moving around in the boat. Sharper turns were by sticking a paddle in the water.
Wasn't much fun.Had to use the auxiliary to go through Poole harbour entrance rather than brave the Birmingham Navy all coming in with minimal steering...
(WHY is it that when you're doing 2 knots with a Seagull running at full bore and struggling that everyone seems to want to run you down and only change course in the last 5 yards?)
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
