What makes a boat go straight?
Likewise, how do boats turn?
The rudder moves in the direction of lower pressure. As the rudder goes, so goes the stern, and the boat turns. During turns the boat pivots around a point near its midsection—roughly at the mast on a sloop. The stern moves one way, the bow moves the other way, as the boat changes direction.
Also, what is a motor mate? MotorMate keeps the outboard motor from bouncing and jostling that may inflict collateral damage to the engine's steering cables, hydraulic lines, housing and finishing. MotorMate also releases the pressure on the hydraulic system.
Also to know, what is a transom saver?
Its name would imply that the transom saver is a device designed to protect your boat's transom from undue stress while trailering your boat. Tracker Boats, on the other hand, endorses their use and includes a "motor toter" with all of their packages.
