We have sailed our 383 about a dozen times now in winds up to 20 knots apparent (with one reef in the main). Our typical sail out of Salem, MA is a beam reach out and back. We have noticed a distinct difference in weather helm between starboard (pretty huge) and port tack (much less). We have checked the mast and it is true side-to-side. Of course our sails are not new but although that contributes to weather helm, that should not be the reason for the noticeable side-to-side difference. We wonder if this is caused by our three blade prop? Do other experience this. Also, what is the appropriate gear to put the Hurth transmission while sailing? Neutral?
