Default New way to steer a Tiger...

When your on your way back to the ramp...

At idle...

After blowing a drive...

You can steer your boat once you aim it relatively straight by sitting on the engine hatch feet on the back seat by just shifting your position left and right a little...

It's easier to pass time and the cooler is within easy reach once placed on the back seat for the "many" hours put-puting back...

Thank god for full coolers... never leave home without it. The things you learn when going at "fast" blowbot speeds...

XR with a slight over 300 hours of blower engine 42' boat pushing so no surprise there. It's a boat not a car...

I still have about $47,000 left from what I saved not buying #6's however. Be back on the water by Wednesday, so no bigs.

Your the only person I know that will find the easiest way to do nothing at all!!!!

For those of you smaller guys, I'm getting ready to patent a pair of 200 pound swim trunks so everyone can take advantage of GL's suggestion....

At least you are keeping your good humor about it.

I could freak out but I saw Niel/DPT do that and nothing constructive came of it...

Well he couldn't open his eyes anymore but that might be a good thing for him...
