Check out this common myth about docking with an Arneson drive and learn what racing world champion and co-owner of TNT Custom Marine, Johnny Tomlinson, has to say about it!
Myth: You can’t dock with an Arneson drive.
“When I think about an Arneson drive, I’m comparing it to a boat with [Mercury Racing] Number Sixes or other surface drives, and they’re going to dock the same,” said John Tomlinson, a multiple-time offshore racing world champion and co-owner of TNT Custom Marine in North Miami, Florida. To get more response when backing up, trim the drive deeper into the water. If you’re willing to throw some water, apply plenty of power and the boat will still go where you want.
