    What is all of the gear hanging down on a v-drive all about? Where a swim platform would normally be, but a bit lower? Are those adjustable planing surfaces or something? Always wondered - never knew, figured it wouldn't hurt to ask..

    We're in the countdown for our first visit to Lake Powell, which happens to be our first ever houseboating trip as well. In addition to all the common sense stuff is there anything I should know, or bring, that I probably wouldn't think of unless I'd been before? A few questions: * Is there...
