KWAHAMOT!!! I used to ride with the Kwahamot waterski show in Tomahawk, we used to have a house up on ****ty stumpy Lack Alice. We didnt have the MC back then, I'd never put it in on that lake...its way to sketchy as far a stumps go. I havent been in Tomahawk for a few years, how are the Kwahamot's doing? I'm hoping to get up there again this year, maybe on my way down from Eagle River. Anyway, sorr I cant help you out, your thread just kind of made me want to scream KWAHAMOT!!!

Its good, they have a good show, but they use malibu's, and i think they run like crap. But its still a good show!

what happened to their red ski nautique? That thing had a really smooth pull....not as nice as my MC but it was pretty good. I left when that marina started letting them use a boat for the season...I didnt really like it as much as the CC.

The red Nautique is still alive, at least as late as last year. It has seen better days though. I ski with a bunch of the guys that used to ski on the KWAHAMOTs. I have gone up to Tomahawk for the past six years for the 4th of July. Can't pass up watching the old timers show every year. We usually ski the Wisconsin River since one of my buddies parents have a house on the river.

Which guys do you ski with? I used to ski with a few of them in pro shows.

None of the guys I ski with skied professionally. The best of the group that I ski with is probably Dave Seehafer, but he moved to Colorado on us a couple years ago so I only get to ski with him on the 4th now. A couple more names to through at ya are Lurch, Loka, and Spud.

If they have been in the old timers show in Tomahawk on the 3rd of July I am sure I have met them, but I am horrible with names. It doesn't help that there are large quantities of adult beverages being consumed.

I am about an hour north of Tomahawk in St. Germain. We could meet up halfway in Minocqua.

I will be in Tomahawk, but I don't know if I will be on Nakomis at all. We are staying at the Bridge Inn and will probably be skiing on the river with the guys from the KWAHAMOTs. If you see a red 197 out there that is us. Stop buy and say hi.

Since you guys are talking Wisconsin, I thought I'd drop a line in about the Chain Skimmers! I used to belong to the team back in the 70's. I grew up on Nautiques, but since have transfered to the good guys since the middle 80's.

Minocqua on the 4th is a cool place to be

The MinAqua Bats put on a good show.

I personally like the "fliver" which is the little boat with a 10 or 15 HP engine that hits the wake from both Nautiques and shoots like ten feet in the air....its pretty cool.
