Please triple check your reverse mechanisms for failure. If it is air operated, check everything from your switch to the air cylinder. You do not want to take off someones fingers between the rope and the capsule lid. Make sure your bucket works flawless. Also, starting in reverse does not get it either.
Even after you are teched by another tech official, I will be checking all boats for neutral operation. If you dont have your bucket figured out to hold your boat in one position, I suggest you do so before the November race. This is for your safety, as well as others.If you need help with it, you can call [email protected] 707 864 0332 Joe Shelfo, NJBA Tech.
