Since most peoples season's is finish :rant: How many hours have you put on your boat this summer?
How much of them for skiing,wakeboarding and cruising around?

In my case, i put exactly 100 hrs on it.I was skiing for about 90 of them ,Nathalie skied only 9 times this summer,and the rest is the time it takes to get to the course.I don't cruise much on our small 2 miles long lake.
Wakeboarding? ...Ooups... :uglyhamme
How about you guys...and girls?

I had a bad summer and only got the boat in the water 4 times. 10 hours total.

Sking: 6, daughters 4, me 2
Wakeboarding: 1
Cruising: 3

On the plus side, I only spent about $60 or $70 on gas.

I am looking forward to a 100 hour year next year.

We bought the boat in the end of August and put 48 hours on it. Split about evenly between crusining and skiing / wakeboarding. :steering:

About 65 for my boat. I’m thinking about 45 skiing, no wakeboarding this year. Probably got about 35 more of skiing on my Supra buddies boat.

About 200 hrs. Probably split 50/50.

I have always done a lot of skiing, but this year my wife got back into it and probably went for about 50 rides. The biggest change was from my kids; my daughter (7 yrs) learned to ski this summer and caught the bug big time - she went 3 times a day for most of the summer and learned to drop a ski by the end of the season. My son (4yrs) moved his tubing escapades to "behind the big boat".

I guess it only gets worse next year, my daughter wants a slalom ski and my son has a handle tied to his bedroom door...hope the price of gas eases a bit !

I'm in the same boat (so to speak) as Tex -- 03' X2 purchased in March of 03 - 189 hours.

We've put on a about 75 this year -- we were slowed due to a wiggly infant that didn't like her life jacket. Next year should be another 100 hour year.

Hmmmm... no clue. Maybe I ought to look at my hour meter more often!
I did get out about 15 days though, which given my schedule recently is pretty good. And it's a lot better than the 4 days I got out last year!

Despite the rainy weather...the wettest in the last 20 years, we managed to put 82 hours on this year. We have been averaging 70 or so.

I can see that some of us spend more time on this board then in their boat! :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

I can see some of us are better at vacation planning than others! 8p


Interesting numbers, to look at some of the other time killers, if we drive 15,000 miles in a year at 40MPH avg speed we spend 375 hours in that driver seat. If we could increase the avg speed to 60MPH then only 250 hours and we have 125 hours more to boat! Need higher speed limits! At 40/hours per week and 46 wks avg work we spend 1840 hours at work. For the 1 hour church service we spend 52 hours at church. If it takes 15 minutes per post and we have 400 posts per year that is 100 hours, I just scared myself. :eek: It's all in fun!

Our total was at 70 hours. June didn't see much skiing so most of the time was in July and August when we didn't miss many mornings. The bulk of time was pulling barefoot and getting the hang of a new Sky Ski.

I put about 95 on my '85 S&S that I sold in September and another 10 on the '91 I bought in October.

The guy I bought the '91 from put 340 hours on it in 13 years. I could see putting 30 hours a year on it now that you drop a bill everytime you go out, but not during the 90's.

Before the kid, we averaged 200 hrs/year. I think this year, we only got 100hrs though. Pretty slow summer.

Sounds alot like us. Bought the boat at the end of August and put right at 50 hours on it. Split between crusin and pulling a variety of tubers and skiers. And, as previously noted, countless hours floating in the sunshine. :D

530 hours put on the 205 since we got it in August of 2001. This year we had a few other riders with boats around so it got a bit of a breather, I think about 90 hours this summer.

Thirty minute drive to ramp:( . 75 hours pulling skiers 2 kids, 1 wife, mysefl, and kids friends. lost most of June and part of July due to high water and wet weather. Another 120+ hours behind club boats for kids. Lots of driving but worth it.:)

We bough our new 04 X-star this past late summer and in less than
1 1/2 months put on more than 50 hrs. All from wakeboarding, WOOOHOOO!! By that way the wake rocks, and with the added 1800 lbs of ballast on top of the factory ballast created a monster of a wake.
Its all about huge air!!! :D
