Yo man. I am going to be going back to school here shortly at BG. We(the bgsu waterski team) practice in the maumee. You will have to come down there with us and we can pull you around that nice piece of water. How is your boat? I just bought a 85 S&S and i love it. Let me know

I have a boat but no other skiers or anyone experienced enought to drive. My cousin and I would go out all the time but he recently moved to FL. Any takers?
I'm there again the first of april. I'll bring a drysuit.
can we freeski and spray those rowing teams while we're out?

Sound's great man, I have a 84 S & S it's been in the family since 85' and is in great shape, I love it, hardly any probems with her except a dinged prop here and there.

Try Glass City Waterski Club. They are west of Toledo on the Maumee.

Hey, Im often looking for a 3rd on the Maumee
2001 Prostar 190 - Sammy Duvall - It's new to me this year :)

I ski the river about 4 days a week - The boats always in.
Id like to check out that stars and stipes - I logged about 200 hours driving an '84 SS a few summers back. Are you on the river by the small launch? - Blue?

Let me know, I work weekdays 8-5 so its usually evenings / weekends

Yeah man glass city is who we (Bowling Green State University Watersiki team) practice with and they also give us pulls. They are a bunch of nice guys and it is cheap to join the club and use the jump and course.

Sounds good!!

I'm not the Blue one by the dock but I know what your talking about, actually I'm the black and gray one (I don't keep her in the water, I alway tows her). Too bad I didn't check this earlier, I just got back in....it was a great evening on the water.

You can e-mail me at davidziemke@yahoo(dot)com if you plan on going out again.
I can meet you out there.

Temperance MI here. I used to ski the Maumee between GR and Napolean. Picking up a 93 MC on Saturday. Hopefully my wife can learn to pull me quick. Would be happy to ski with you anytime.

Congrats on the new boat!! I grew up skiing in Napoleon, my family has a dock on Coon Hollow Dr up there, I think probably the best skiing water in the area. I would certainly go out with you anytime.

I appreciate it...same here you can e-mail me at mastercraft1984@aol.com.

I was on the Maumee a couple weeks ago and seen your course and ski jump ramp(nice). If I lived a little closer I'd be joining in a heart beat.

yeah they are a bunch of ncie people down there but here lately the water has been really crappy do to high winds. O well

I was wondering if I could get a Maumee river report around Grand rapids, I'm thinking of heading that way over the weekend. Just wondering about how much rain you guys got and if the river is up much.
We received over 4" from Katrina, I don't think you guys were hit as hard...but water runs down hill right.
