RE: Moving a twin engine boat sideways(?).

I'm going to have to give this technique a try next time out. If it works or not - THANKS!

Although NOT sideways I thought some of these manovers might be helpfull to some of the readers.

RE: Moving a twin engine boat sideways(?).

We tried in out on Sunday when we went to pump out.* It seemed like the boat was starting to move sideways when someone wanted to pass by us and we had to stop.* We tried it again a few more times and were getting more forward motion than anything.* We'll try again sometime soon when we have more time!*
