Skatercat

Hi to all,ime rigging a 21 foot skater hull with a yami 225 on a lifter,hull is just like these trickcats seen in this site,ive never driven a cat before,can someone be so kind and pass over a few tips on how to drive this hull ,ie like turns and corners @ high speeds ,shall i just leave lifter were desired depanding on sea state and trim in abit when cornering ?,Ive also placed the oil tank towards the right abit if ur looking back the batt on the centre and the lifter pump on the left abit ,i wonder if this will affect stability on cat to much,i can always empty the tank i get told first to empty, from starboard or portside to help on stability.many thx to u all .
