spinning in in most cases will pick up a little speed but will also make most boats handle differently alot of times it will cause the boat to chime walk especially velocity, as for # 3s swap the drives for bravos you need to change the hook up at the shifter......

If the dock's not crowded it's OK. Add a couple dozen boats and a little cross wind and things get exciting really fast!!

Docking with inbound only takes seat time and paying attention to what you are doing. No sweat with my cat.

I'm no expert, but doesn't the drives being farther apart on a cat make it easier?

Ive got a VERY dumb question, If your spinning in, your LH prop is on the starboard side correct?

LH meaning left hand prop? if yes then yes. If you're spinning out right now and you change it to spinning in your original left hand prop (spinning out/ originally on the port side) would be on your starboard side when spinning in. makes sense?
