Harbor Club North. Smaller marina between Metro and Beacon Cove. Best bang for the buck that I've been able to find.
Keep an eye out for me. I'm usually at either Goose or the moot![/URL][/IMG]

From driving big two and four screw ships in the navy, I've come up with my own technique. I usually use just one engine now to back in and turn the drives to where I want them to pull me towards or push me away from. Like turn it towards my finger dock to bring me closer to it in reverse, and if I start closing too fast or get too close, push it to forward and now it pushes me away from the finger.

And my 7.4s top out at about 40 mph with mismatched props. Curious what matched ones will do. How fast do your small block boats go? You probably weigh 700 or more pounds less.
