You would gain a lot from the class since you have a twin step v. They are a lot more complex then people realize.

Does your cat have any trim tabs or a tunnel tab? Mine does not have any, so the only trimming will be the outdrives.

I think more people would attend if the mftr's subsidized the program but the avg boater has to decide between spending $2500 on a class, himself, his boat & or his family.

I'd love to go if someone wants to foot the bill. I tried to organize a school here in NC for my local boat club & the price was the same 1 or 15 & there wasn't any interest in offering a class anywhere but FL.

Give me a shout. I think Charlie is working with Tres on putting something together close to us.
