    My idle is 1700 rpm, which makes me go 9-12 mph, and docking is lurchy. What should the idle be set at? I'm still learning how to come into a dock safely. Having to push the lockout button on the throttle lever while standing is somewhat of a problem when trying to go really slow or reverse at a dock approach, but the high idle is bothering me.

    Your idle is correct, I think it's 1750+/-50rpm.
    The speed @ idle should be more around 6mph, and yes you will have to work the gate around dock & trailer.
    That's were the new BRP electronic shift brings low speed boat control in a whole new world, making it so easy around dock & trailer.
