Default Tres Martin Performance Boat School !!!

ANYONE who owns a performance boat NEEDS to attend Tres's school. I went with a little doubt that I would learn anything but WOW, what I didn't know. Tres is a super guy that will spend time with you answering questions.

The first day we did the classroom thing with the exam at the end of the day, ( I failed so I have to attend summer school). The class was VERY interesting and informative.

The second day we hit the water......

Tres pull's up with a secret weapon under cover for us to use on a beautiful lake !!!

As we idle out, Tres explains the proper settings for all types of running. Including the settings for your tabs for a "No Wake" zone.
