I have read through much of the above thread about sailing without an engine. A great read.

For those who are sailing without an engine, what are you using/doing to maneuver in tight/shallow areas? Marinas? Anchorages?

I am interested in what larger sailboat owners do. By larger, I mean 25 foot+.

What are the alternatives? I've read of sculling oars, the "Sculmatix," and installing oars & locks onto one's production fiberglass boat... and the Yuloh.

What else works as an alternative to having some kind of engine? I'd really like to read what some of you have done to go "engine-less."

Thanks for sharing your solutions.
