Surface drives are much harder to manuver around the docks, due to lack of steering and very little power in reverse.

have JC show you where "level" is on the tab indicators and know the "sweet spot". too little tab will make you run too loose and be bow light (not enough control). to much burries the nose and part the red sea sort of thing. it just depends on the conditions whenever you are out. then make sure you come off the sticks enough when you come off the water so you don't zing the drives. watch your tacks at that point so they stay consistent and don't move. you can't zing a bravo too many times with out busting it.

did nortie take you out and teach you yet?

good luck sweetie

Anna! How the heck are ya. We were talking about you the other day! Jeffery said you're the only girl who knows how to dock that he's seen! Hopefully I'll be the second

Nope not yet. Soon enough. I haven't had time.

When are you coming to visit? Hopefully in the next couple of months. Summer is here!

Thumbs up Re: We are Woman hear us roar! With big power!

i'm doing great! thanks for asking. the engines just went back into the boat last week and we're headed to the atlantic city run this weekend with fingers crossed. i'd offer to help you myself, but you'd have to jump on a plane to do it and 1200's would be a biotch to learn on!

you'll have to tell me how the lessons go! at least twins are much easier to dock than a single screw. just take a deep breath and take it slow. you don't have to learn everything overnight.

good luck adn tell JC i said thanks!

This is the only way I could get the pic to load. Tell them west coasters to take standard 640 X 480 pics Wasabe!

Here is the back of "Liquid Legend" Standard Bravo XRs.
