May is just a couple of days away....

Charged the battery & dewinterized. Been hitting the gym. Now it just has to warm up a bit and it's time to hit it!

Any one else ready?:)

I am way past ready. Noticed that you are from the Northwest also. Hoping that we can get a few nice days pretty soon so that we can hit it! I am sick of the rain and cold weather.:mad:

It was supposed to be 72 last Sunday, so we went out with a buddy of mine who had a brand new Supra....went to Moses Lake because the water temp was warmer than the columbia. It was cloudy all day, didn't stop the wakeboarding (think dry suits) but definately wasn't nice. Worst part was his new Supra died for no reason, would barely start, couldn't put it in gear, engine sputtered and turned off every time. Needless to say he was really unhappy. In the end we had to be towed back into the dock......by you guessed it a MC. Really nice guy with a beautiful Maristar towed us in. :cool:

I'll bet you're dieing to get that new MC out so that you can show your buddy that he should have bought a real ski/wakeboard boat. I'm on the westside and with the exception of about 3 days, we have had nothing but cold/damp weather and lots of wind. I can't wait to get out there.

We share a garage with him, he is a great guy and has spent considerable time in our X2. When he got his Supra he kept comparing fit and finish to MC, and lets say MC may have had a better product. He went on the road trip with me to pick up the PWT, really good friend. We even got a poster of Andrew Adkison signed for him that said "Let me know when you buy your MC and I will come ride with you" at the Portland Pro Wakeboard tour. We always go back and forth with him regarding brands.....

You just pull up to the pump and fill her up. Just like you do your truck. I fill my truck up every other day. I don't even look at the amount any more. It cost be around 25.00 a day to get back and forth from work. That was when i was paying attention.

Got lucky and got out 3 times a week or so ago, but the weather turned again and have not gotten back out. Boat fired right up and everything worked well. Gotta love MC.:)

Wish I could head to CSM, but there is no way to fit it in with the kids still in school.

Hope everyone has a GREAT time.

Been on the weights for 6 weeks now. Water still cold in Colorado, 55 degrees. It might snow tomorrow night. I have the boat out of heated storage, looks like it will be in my garage shortly for a night or two.
