i love this!:"when to let off - ALWAYS leaning towards sooner rather than later"....like i said, everyone knows...chop the throttles w/poor timing and guess what happens....ever hear of bow steer???...not to mention most boats are utilizing BIG wheels these days with 4, 5! and 6!blades...

just because the equipment is capable, dosn't mean you are...


Well Said..........!!!!

There is no Gladiator that docks anywhere in MC. I have never seen one coming in or out of the harbor. There is a sweet one that sits on a lift in New Buffalo Mi, pretty sure it was not there when I drove throught the marina last Sunday.

In reference to the Gladiator accident, as far as I can remember, the water conditions in St. Joseph and the rest of Michigan's west shoreline on Friday were very calm with winds coming out of the East to SE at less than 5mph which will make water conditions relatively flat as it was the rest of the weekend---it turned out to be a very beautiful weekend.
