It’s easy to buy a brand new ski or wakeboard boat loaded with deafening speakers, wake board, racks, ballast bags, cruise control and digital dash; so you can go out and dazzle your friends and enjoy skiing and/or wake boarding.

But, it certainly is NOT easy to dock a single inboard ski/wake board boat, regardless of how many toys are included or how much it costs.

  • Wakeboard boat
  • Tow Boat

A single inboard has a mind of its own and, if you don’t know how to outsmart it, docking can be a real embarrassing disaster.

Don’t accept the advice “practice makes perfect”  or the excuse “it only works sometimes” or “I don’t know anyone who gets it right every time”.

Docking a boat is a duplicatable skill; but, only when you follow the correct instructions. This e-lesson will empower you to outsmart the single inboard and dock with predicted results on either the port side or the starboard side.

Don’t let the port prop pull in reverse take control.

Single inboard prop pull stubbornness in reverse is defeatable.
