Ive heard/said that a few times... Normally when I hear those words, the next words are "I meant for us to do 2 complete spins, did you spill your drink?"

(i threw in the last part for dramatic effect)

At least I do it gracefully......never spun the single step out which says alot for the single step in other words it will turn as hard as you have the balls to turn it. the twin step though does have it's attributes also if it was me I would move the steps back a bit and reconfigure the bottom. i dont know the entire science but do know what doesn't work first handed (splash). The single step OL and Cig turn very hard and the Lavey step turns hard. But this doesn't work in a hard turn.

========================================

Well then you step the boat without stepping it!! Simple!!

I went boating on Mon., Tues., had a race party at the Ocean Key House on Wed., boating on Thurs., Fri., another race party on Sat. and loaded up and went home to Delray on Sun. So, I didn't go boating, huh. How many times did you take your boat out in Key West, Jack?

Sean,
Thanks for emailing all those great pictures. I was looking at this one in particular and a rough guess is 10 feet of air between the water and the props. Impressive!
Thanks Again
Ed
