Re: i NEED HELP/Training weather?

It did not seam excessive Just a bit unexpected. I have felt it a few times but this day was windy compared to most days here in Beaufort. The boat handled very well. it seemed to get in a slot and stay there on its own if and when I had it trimmed properly. Until the gust then she swings up. I think its normal from what I have read but just a little stronger than I expected. The boat accelerates great. I can feel her take off and here the water from off the stern getting loud. Itís a great feeling. We could have used another person. Putting the boat back away in the slip was a pain in the but. I bounced off the dock on the nose the wind drove me up. I couldnít stop it. Thatís a bad feeling when you know youíre going to hit and you have no control.
Thanks for the guidance. Cant wait to do it a gain
