A few years ago my cousin broke the tiller handle on his merc while we were out 4 miles from the ramp. So we 2 man drove that unit wide open back to the ramp. He was the throttle man and I was the manual steer man. Gotta get where you're going!! Not going to lie. I would have sat back there and turned that motor my self to get out to hunt and back.
If I ask a question, I don't want your opinion. I want facts.
Don't tell me something you think, tell me something you know.
It's easier to say I don't know, than make something up.
Although, being a forum the next guy will know more no matter what.
