    yo

    Adjustment of trim are very importand 1. to the water you dive in fresh or salty 2. if you like it a tat negative or positive 3. if you like the nose a tat down or up

    Adjustment of the trim weights inside the scooter are important to have the scooter settle when torque is applied from the running engine - prop to have the handle you are holding iin the right position

    Adjustment of the harness is importand 1. to not be to tight 2. to loose 3. if you have to much pull on your crotch strap and your inseam is getting squeezed manufacture a scooter harness out of old seatbelt - weight belt material or use a climbing harness

    Adjustment of the scooter towing strap is importand 1. to have the running scooter settle in front of you with your driving hand touching the handle just for steering 2. not to hold on to the scooter

    Adjustment of your buoyancy is importand 1. to keep you level behind the scooter in order 2. to avoid excess drag 3. and pull on your harness 4. or crotch strap 4. a lot of people mask bad buoyancy with scooter speed 5. get neutreal buoyant first at target depth and then pull the trigger

    Use a cruise control device on long runs not to cramp up

    Use a goodman handle and train with it so you do not cramp up

    Take a DPV class if you can and have not done so already with an experienced DPV instructor to practice all the above as well as propper scooter failure, gas sharing, towing and pushing scenarios and drills

    Aside from all the comments pertaining to adjustments of gear etc. Is the "weak link" possibly your right shoulder? Maybe a underlying right shoulder malady.
