Re: Beastly boat to manuever

I drive an 80 foot tug pushing a 300 foot barge at work. After that, any boat smaller get's real EZ. Try getting some helm time on larger vessels and go back to it. doubt it's the boat that's being sluggish. You are probably not used to how she handles. You will be surprised if you can drive around a bigger boat and go back to it how EZ it will be. Same with cars. You ever drive around a big pick up and then hop in a civic or something?
