Every PWC and stand up does this. Kinda curious what specifically they are talking about.

If you read, its about steering when you are off throttle, and there is no steerable thrust to turn the boat

I applaud BRP for making their product as safe for the idiots that buy them as possible, but you really do need to pay the patent holder when you use their ideas. It is usually cheaper to pay them before you go into production.

When I lived in the south I rode Sea Doo's some pretty cool ones. And it was fun...but absolutely nothing remotely like sledding. Although, I think the same "go fast" mentality applies, lots of guys with turbo and built rockets out there racing over the water in the early morning smooth glass. I was more of a wave jumping see how far I can dive underwater with this while turning retard. Got lame after a while. I need trees to pose an imminent danger of death I guess.

Trees, guide wires, culverts. burried shit, junction boxes, and the odd gas valve...that will put hair on your chest....
