Whoa man, that's wild - 6.5hours on a foil. Is the X-14 gas tank just big enough for that? Did he stop just to avoid burning out the fuel pump?
Wonder what the longest distance on waterskis is....... Thanks for sharing that link

Is that Mike Murphy driving?

From the reports that the guys on site said, it that they left the dock with full tanks and brought along extra gas tanks. I think I even heard that the chase boat had to bring them some more.
Yep, that's Murphy driving.
That's cool :cool: canyon lake's a nice little lake my wife's family has a place there :D it's obvious they asked the residents to stay off while he did it because you get more than 3 boats going at once on that lake and it chops up bad. :D
