The #1 fear of boaters is not sinking offshore or drowning, it is docking the boat
in front of one's friends and making a hash of it. Two years ago Volvo-Penta
first solved the problem for owners of diesel-powered express cruisers with its
IPS, and now MerCrusier has become the first to do it in production gas-powered
stern drives with a system called Axius. Capt. Rob Smith interviews MerCruiser President
Kevin Grodzki about the fly-by-wire technology.
