The embarrassing answer has to be "Only just!"???

Well, what do you expect? A long, pointy hull, single screw, single rudder (with a tiller that goes the 'wrong' way!) No bow thruster either. What kind of narrow boat is this? I could also complain that the sim is not very realistic in its handling etc etc etc. In fact any excuse I can find really!

But, in the end it's down to me.  :'(

Mind you, looking at her position in the basin, on my very first attempt, I turned her to starboard, straightened up, and then went through the bouys stern-first. Clean as a whistle...until I was 'failed' for going backwards! Now that's just not fair!

Took a good few goes after that, eventually swinging......oh hang on, that would be telling you all. Lousy score, but now I know how it's done, should improve.

Seriously embarrassed here going to admit the mid 100's on the first attempt because of the stupid rudder! Not a problem second time around and only just over the figure in the screen capture by TugMaster. I think his figure is the best out of twenty attempts  ;D

cheers
