Default Driving Techniques

I've been watching a lot of online high performance driving videos, etc...and was wondering a few things. I know technique depends on the exact boat, drives, hull etc...but do most of you guy trim your drives all the way in and tabs down to increase stern lift and get the boat up on plane ?

Yes. Some boats may not require tab or very little ...depending upon bottom design. Staggered set-up typically requires very little or no tab. Every boat is different.

Thumbs up

Thats your best bet they will teach you to drive your boat and the 2001s have a step or steps right , they will handle dif from a v hull. Tres has a moving class too, so they might be in your area this spring or summer and I think your insurance rate comes down to so you could save money there, take the boat to him and make a va ca out of it too
