You donít know what your talking about or, youíve never driven a boat at headway speed. Yes they work like that. Try holding the helm in one position and see what happens. Youíll turn slightly in one direction then turn slightly in the other. Against a current that is pushing you backwards (your example) the boat would not be able to recover even if you turned into the current. The only reason you go straight in normal conditions is because you have the velocity to overcome the velocity of the water.
