at gull i allways see people right up on the beech with there boat, i did same last sat , but to get up that far i had to raise out drive , really far up and give it quite a bit of gas. prop was still under water , but later a person said that if you do that it will break the work gears in the out drive. didnt know if this was right or not because ive seen so many other people doing this . is there a beter way ? waters pretty cold still. yeah i know iam a wimp when comes to cold real cold water . ..
