    Driving a bass boat is not difficult. It can be done by anyone who can drive a car and who has some basic sense of how an outboard operates.


    Bass boats are commonplace on America's waters. Thousands are owned and operated mostly by fishermen, but also by casual weekend boaters. Many of these boats are capable of going faster than 70 miles per hour, and they are frequently bought and operated by people who have had little or no experience at driving a performance watercraft.

    Actually, driving a bass boat is not difficult. It can be done by anyone who can drive a car and who has some basic sense of how an outboard operates. The most important thing is to use good common sense and to never operate a boat in conditions you're not completely comfortable with. Starting with this foundation, it's easy to learn how to operate a bass boat in its maximum performance envelope.

    The first step is proper rigging. How well a boat performs and how safe it is depends in large part on how its component pieces are assembled. A boat that is rigged properly will deliver top performance. On the other hand, a boat that is rigged improperly will perform poorly, or even dangerously. Boat owners who have questions or who have experienced problems they suspect are related to improper rigging should contact their boat maker's factory representative.
