Re: first ride tag along

We are headed to lake cypress about 6 or 7 if the rain holds off. With the rain might be some skinny water to practice in. Remember no brakes and power is what turns you..when you get in trouble first instinct is to let off the gas when you may need to stand on it and stab the stick. Go slow and get...

It's not very free in the water but does not porpoise and cruises with 3 people and 50 gallons of fuel around 1550. With it on a step I ...
