    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.

    Great idea. Thanks Joe. I was hoping since the second elsinore race that someone would mention this. We had a lot of boats start in gear and a couple that had some close calls with the lights. A neutral locking position is a must for all boats IMO. Something so that you can hold the rope with both hands while the engine is running without moving the boat.

    One of the problems I see happening alot (and it drives me nuts) is the guys with air gates that insist on opening the throttle half way when they go to fire up and the boat lunges forward and everyone goes for a ride on the holding rope. An air gate will not stay closed when you do this no matter what parts you have.

    Thanks Joe.

    i love the guys that cant seem to leave the line straight. you try to get close so you can lift the rope up high for 'em and end up getting hosed. damn jet boaters.

    Definatly a few come to mind.

    I'll admit I about hung myself when I tried banging a big nitrous hit on the holding rope with an airgate then flooded the motor. Never heard the end of it all weekend "TRUCK N TRAILER FOR BOAT 418 TO THE INRAMP.

    ... and that is about the only reason I haven't converted over yet... well that and I think anything more than one button on the wheel would confuse the hell out of me to the point that I would either mash the wrong button and/or piss myself thinking about it too hard. Simple folk need simple things.
