I would like to see a video about how to navigate rough water, I cannot find a good one.. Here in MT micro burst form suddenly and chances are good if you fish a lot that you will get caught in one, that being said, a lot of situations I wonder about and what the physics are to keep from getting swamped, IE going into waves, down waves, across waves. I have heard some old timers say, when in doubt, trim out...ECT

Top video mate. Thanks. I knew it already but needed to hear someone with common sense, describe and show it, for reassurance. I will continue to bring the trim in for faster turns.

Why no mention of planing angle?? True wetted surface is a factor but not at the expense of too high a planing angle which is the angle from the planing surface of the hull (I assume the flattest parts) to the horizontal. If my memory serves me, 5-6 degrees. This is what trimming is about to get the planing surfaces at this angle. Shifting ballast (passengers fuel etc) is the most efficient way to do this. Trimming the outboard or using trim tabs is not.

Great video.  I'll be interviewing for a job soon and I have to show I can operate a boat (24ft).  I've operated a few but it was yrs ago and I never had to think about the trim. 
So if I get this right, to take off you have NO trim and as it plans out you ad trim to it?
