If you have owned a boat, you know that being on the water can sometimes be unpredictable. Other boaters with skiers and tubers are all around you while you tow your own skiers. Your head is on a constant swivel looking for oncoming traffic while then looking back to make sure you skier is still skiing behind you.
One of the biggest things to get used to is your boat has no brakes, so if you need to slow down in a hurry, you will need to possibly kick the throttle in reverse to slow your momentum. I recall loading my boat in the water at a public boat dock in Clermont on a very busy Saturday morning. There were boats lined up all along the dock with passengers boarding their boats. I backed up my boat in a relatively tight area and my prop was getting dangerously close to a cement wall. To avoid contact with the wall I had to gun it in forward which thrusted me very close to one of the boats still tied to the dock. The people in their boat thought for sure I was going to collide with them. I have to admit that I did too but at last second I kicked it in reverse and floored the engine which stopped my boat before making impact.
