    My wife actually enjoys driving the boat. in fact, when it comes to pulling a surfer, she's easily as good of a driver as I am.

    Those of you with a wife that won't drive, do you have perfect pass? I do and it makes ALL the difference. When you take the whole maintaining the perfect speed out of the equation, it's pretty damn easy for her to drive. She's literally never been behind the wheel of a boat EVER and was able to get up to speed driving quite quickly.

    My wife drove our SN just a handful of times for the 13 years we owned it. She has tripled that with the Supra in the three years we have had it. My son drives mostly (supervised) when I'm being pulled. He started when he was ten. All due to PP.

    ^^^ completely agree........I have my 16 yr old daughter drive all the time (though she isn't really in love with the idea) and as long as you have someone who can operate a steering wheel then there's really nothing else to it.

    Yes, we have PP. For her it isn't matter of keeping speed, but being afraid of being the one responsible for where the boat is going and the people in it. She's afraid she'll hit something submerged, turn the boat wrong and someone will fly off the seat, etc...she's a worrier.

    My wife drives for me all time. We started going out with just the two of us during the week and there was no dock where we launch at so you can not just tie the boat to a dock while you park the truck so she had to learn quick how to load and unload from the trailer. Now she does it so often she is probably more proficient at it than I am. She was also forced to learn to pull me since when we go out with just us two I still want to ride. Now she will even pull doubles although she doesn't like too.

    You know I'm there with you. I don't think I've ever trailered this boat. Jill always makes fun of the helpless people that can't get the boat off of the trailer (or on). We saw a lady this weekend whose job was to sit there holding the boat on a leash until her husband got back to it.

    She does get mad when she realizes she has driven more than I have on any given day (which are most days).
