Mine doesnt drive at all, but she is a very good "boat girl"

im convinced that DonziChick can drive anything with a motor, she did an awsome job driving mine.

Thanks!

I still have a lot to learn with throttling but I am learning (I think)

My wife can drive and throttle, but doesn't like to back the boat into the slip. She's also great at watching the gauges. And, yes: she's on the boat's insurance policy.

The girlfriend is a good driver as long as there are not a lot of boats around. Hasn't tried to dock yet. She tried to back the trailer in once, but it didn't go so well. She is adamant about learning how to do everything next year when we get a bigger boat. I couldn't ask for a better line and fender girl though...she has that down pat!
