    Remember when learning to park, slow is your friend. Play around with one engine forward and one in reverse to see what happens, it might turn on a dime. When you have the port engine in reverse and the starboard in forward it will turn counter clockwise, and when the port engine in forward and the starboard is in reverse, it will turn clockwise, just put both in forward and go forward and both in reverse and go reverse, slow idle is all that is needed to make a move. If it gets windy or a currant is encountered more power is needed. Go out into the middle of the lake and practice to get the feel of what happens, then go to the dock and take it SLOW. I launch and retreive my 34 foot boat by myself all the time, at first it was kinda bumpy, but in a few days it got much easier. Have fun.

    So jealous 'bout the Babine fishery! I usually walk in to some of the rivers west of there. Spoiled? I don't think so. Living?.....indeed! That is one beautiful Wooldridge you have there sir.- Danny

    That's a perfect colour for the back drop cabin colour of your boat. Very easy to read and not over bearing in design. Looks like your wife new what she was doing. Very awsome, I like it alot.

    I like it Larry! Your wife did well.

    Don't let yourself get to anxious about maneuvering your boat. Remember, it's supposed to be fun, right? I think you'll find other boaters very tolerant and willing to help because we all had to start as greenhorns sometime.

    Good luck, and don't let anyone pack any bananas on Pez Gordo!

    Mike
