Re: Launch date is set

How was the launch? I hear it can be quite different than an outboard or I/O. That's what I'm most concerned about. Yes, very different. I think the key is to go slow and figure out how it responds to your inputs. For example, when in reverse, our boat goes to the right no matter which way you turn ...
