Joystick technology is the latest enhancement to controlling your vessel. The system incorporates the use of a joystick to make your all-around boating experience more enjoyable. Gone are the days of having to try to fight the wind and current without success. Joystick control allows you to instantly become an expert at docking your boat in all environments and circumstances. Simply move the joystick in the direction that you want the boat to move and it goes there. It is that easy!
