We spent 4 months in Beaufort, NC at Beaufort Yacht Basin (awesome staff) watching the commercial fishermen enter the very narrow harbor to the Homer Smith fish house to unload. Several every day. Every one of them are singles with some vessels in the 50' range. They did things I still can't do well with our twins. They trust their singles to work hard every day. Never heard any of them (and we visited with many) talk about breaking down and being stranded. We were supremely impressed. Would it take some serious practice to get that good, oh yeah. But the single with it's barn door rudder is a sight to behold at the hands of a skilled captain.
