Has anyone performed power turns on a LSV? Is there any risk in flipping the boat?

It seems that the throttle is cut just before fully locking the steering wheel to one side.:confused:

Seems dangerous ... but looks like it could be fun.. if you dont destroy your boat.:-(

The only risk I know of is getting into a fight after you sent that roller across the lake. Power turns are very bad for keeping smooth water.

That MC augering in has been a topic of discussion here before. Not sure if it was a power turn that caused that, but bottom line is that the boat was still running after the incident, so take that for what it's worth

Power turns are only okay if your rider is hurt... otherwise, just say no!

power turns look like they would be a lot of fun- in somebody else's boat not mine!

Its best not to risk anything. I would'nt want to rip off a fin or damge my transmission doing something like that.
