Welcome to the board. While I do not have any specific advice for this boat I will give you some general advice. Wear a lifejacket and a lanyard and never drive above your comfort level or your ability with THIS boat. Hopefully you can find someone close to you that has experience, if you do not, with this boat that can go out an run with you for a bit. I do not mean to offend you if you have a lot of experience, but every boat is different. Just take your time to get to know how your boat rides, how sensitive it is to a center tab or tabs, to trim etc...Best of Luck.
