6.2 nice - gel scheme nice... so it's going to be a gentle "hit it" - or "nudge it" for the deep water start

A nicer control of a deep start by using a lesser power range of the engine, relative to the smaller HP engines, where one needs the entire throttle range to get going nicely. I did not realize this for many years until I drove some of the more recent higher HP engines. Really better for the driver than the skier.

Well, I do deserve some edge on Jim. But I will concede to him when it comes to keeping the bilge waxed.
