Planing a boat is a skill that all boaters must be familiar with. Within this video, I explain how to make a boat plane. It’s very simple to do and is just a matter of starting from idle with the trim all of the way down. As speed is gained, the bow (“front of the boat”) will rise. Slowly begin to trim up, as speed is gained and the boat will level out. After a bit of practice, it will become second nature just like driving a car. Many beginners may feel like the boat is going to fall over backwards when the boat’s front end starts to rise. This is definitely not the case, unless of course someone forgot to put the boat’s drain plug back in =) I filmed this video in 1080P HD with a Panasonic Lumix TS3 camera.
