Then I gave her a challenge of backing across the lot and threading the needle between two signposts that were about 15' apart. I timed her first attempt, it was about 1'30". I said, do it under 60 seconds and we'll go for ice cream.

She did it in 36.

You gotta know what motivates your students.

This seems fitting with the trend towards smaller tow vehicles.

Thanks JD. I'm still punch drunk with this boat. Everything I've wanted in a MC. Perfect boat. Drove from Michigan to Southern Texas to get her a few weeks ago. Well worth it. And the Heater worked great this last weekend.
