How to reverse Greenline 39 into a berth
REVERSE GREENLINE 39
This is done on a single shaft drive, diesel with bow and stern thruster (Eyachts advises all customers to get both).
No need to use steering, just the thrusters and throttle.
Be aware of the wind direction and speed at all times.
Start heading aft first towards the berth
Centre the steering to zero
One click in reverse (1.8kts)
Continuously click both thrusters in opposite direction in short doses (this will turn the boat)
Click into neutral once momentum gained
Line up with the berth then click back into reverse
Use thrusters to keep in line
Once in, click one into forward to stop from hitting the berth
It is almost too easy…
