Welcome to the first of several boating set-up and discussion articles that I plan to add to this Public Service Articles platform. These are being added as a public service to readers who can’t find the odd facts and principals affecting boating performance questions. I’ve spent 50 years wondering and searching for “What/Why boats and motors do and don’t do while in the water”. I hope you’ll enjoy these and will share the links. While this is a motorcycle tools site, I have been a boating enthusiast for almost as many years as a motorcycling nut!
Slippery Performance is an article that I wrote for Bass & Walleye Boats magazine and their May 2000 issue. It was also my first paid journalism gig!
