Among other things

Last night Skid spent time going through emergency steering with the 3 more junior crewmembers who came to sea with us. Once they had all had a go at setting it up we then spent some time motoring around in circles (lots of circles) getting the feel for it...or not!

I know that feeling only too well. Not the best at emergency steering.

How does the emergency steering work and why is it so difficult?

Can you not steer to an extent by using the different levels of throttle from the engines?

As Mart said, could you tell us how it works?
