    moving the boat sounds like a good plan but I doubt it will happen every time someone is in the water.

    Jumping off the top deck onto the engine would certainly be a concern. If it were me I would put up some type of fence. Otherwise someone, a friend etc. may not be aware of the potential danger. Don’t disregard those who make it a challenge to jump anyway and clear the engine.

    We have the 22GSR, it sticks out a foot or two from the covered lift. I haven’t had any issues. I keep a cover on my Yamaha when not used for extended periods. I enjoy our Elevated helm. Extended aft deck and power steering are highly recommended. You will not regret getting them.

    Cruising too slow?

    We have a 22GSR tritoon with a Yamaha 150, great combination.

    Need Advice on New Boat... Please

    In my opinion the extended aft deck is a must have. Makes life much easer when boarding, tubIng, putting on cover etc. Power steering enhances the boating experience, whether it be tubing, docking etc. I wouldn’t be without it. With water sports on your agenda I’m guessing you are getting at...

    Side steering a pontoon, anyone ever tried something like this?

    Practice, practice & practice some more. I used to be scared to death to bring my tritoon onto my lift. But now is second nature, slow is best. Don’t go any faster that you are willing to hit something. Watch flags for wind direction and allow for it. With a heavy crosswind you may have to...

    My new 22sxp is a BIG disappointment

    This is why a shake out cruise with your salesman before you take delivery is so important. Let your dealer know. Probably something very simple ie motor mounting, maybe even trimmed wrong, etc.

    New to boating, 1st Bennington

    Awesome, if you haven’t taken a Boater safety course, I would suggest you do so. Can be found either locally or online.
