While we drive one way today… North to Clayton, we thought it might be fun to talk about turning left and right.
This past, past, weekend, while out on the water we kinda got in a bit of a tough spot in shallow water. Ya see we could only turn left in Jimmy’s boat. And well. It’s a right turner, left is like doing the Austen Powers 3 ..10 point turn.
Now to be honest I always forget which side turns better, so its a 50/50 shot. I suppose it has something to do with the rotation of the prop. I know backing up, the prop does 99% of the steering. I start sweating every time I think of backing into a slip. YIKES. The good news is no one is watching a classic boat with a vintage rumbling flathead docking. Right? Using a small burst of the throttle in reverse and forward is all part of the sweat factor.
Have fun today while we are on the road, you kids that are staying home, NO JUMPING ON THE BEDS! Also if you are not up to date on the Plaid Puzzle. It may have been solved thanks to jason and some others out there. the comments are a fun unraveling of the twists and …. turns of the search. See I brought it back… FULL circle to turns. Wooohooo. ROAD TRIP!
