I am not a motor boat person, I´m a sailor. But as it is, I don´t have a sailing boat, I have part of a motor boat. It can´t beat sailing, but I have to confess that it´s still quite lovely to be able to go wherever you want on the water.
This boat of ours comes with a new feature compared to our old one – you can actually maneuver it to exactly where you want to go. That sounds stupid, I know – how hard can it be to steer a motor boat with a propeller in the back?! – but I assure you that with the wrong boat and narrow circumstances it is perfectly possible to make a complete ass of yourself EVERY TIME you´re trying to fit your boat into your assigned spot by the dock. Ask me, I know…
It may not be a beauty in the boat world, but it´s safe and I don´t feel worried driving it by myself, so I love it.
