How wide is wide? These boats will always turn better to the right than the left due to the rotation of the prop. Turning while on plane is also completely different from turning off plane. 99% of...

Only one reason Ford and Chevy refuse to do it, and that is cost. Just like Chevy resisted going to IRS on their large SUVs for a long time.

Only the options are different.
