14.5 pitch for a powerslot? What did you take off?

I thought most slots use 14 X 18 or close to that.

I got a new spare cover and license plate frame for the trailer from the MC pro shop today along with a small warranty package from Hyperlite. Hyperlite's warranty dept. is awesome. They noticed that I posted that I had broke one of the lace clips on my system bindings in a wakeworld forum. The warranty manager contacted me via pm and sent me new clips along with new ladder straps and lace sinches just in case. I wasn't even going to turn it in to warranty because it was no big deal but that was great of them.

I got a text one day at work...my entire $4,000 from Overton's was delivered in 12 boxes. She took a pic of the pile of boxes with a one word caption....."really??"

Stripped the gears out of the Winch
Bent the pin on the Boat Buddy
Now I get binding on the jack going up and down

I just didn't think it was that hard to load? :confused:

He's use to the old Cobalt with rollers so he probably didn't put the trailer in deep enough and then tried canking onto the trailer with dry carpet bunks....who knows. Fortunately I talked Lowes into giving me a new winch for free so that helps. :D

No pictures but got my RGB LED rings from sgroyal (look great, drilling is a PITA), RGB wire, more RGB strips for under the dash, 12v RGB music based controller and two suction cup beer holders for the back of the boat so the waves and people quit knocking my beer off the platform.

My 45 platform basically sits on the water flush and one body puts it underwater leaving no place to put my beeros (on the off chance it isn't in my hand).

Its about the CIA's involvement with the Afghan freedom fighters in there war against the USSR. Its interesting to read seeing how we are now fighting these same "freedom Fighters".

Unrelated to skiing, but did get an order for my sporting clays addiction(and my sons).

10 bags of shot, 8 lbs powder, 5k primers, 1000 hulls - those are just the reloading supplies - not counting the factory loads needed for competition.

It's just as expensive as boating :)

Have not read that, but I may add it. My reading revolves around organized crime/mafia, the CIA/US Govt's relationship with the mob, and it's covert war with Cuba (since that's where both my parents are from). I find it amazing that this country was not able to topple a banana republic like Cuba, and moreso that the beloved jfk was such a wimp that we didn't go in and kick the crap out of the communists. if cuba was a huge oil exporter to the us, i guarantee you things would have been different.

Back in '07. The Overtons have done a lot for the sport over the years. The place hasn't seemed to change all that much service-wise. We have the only two Overton's retail stores close to us which is nice for a quick pop-in, but they are so focused on general use boating (and wakeboarding :rolleyes:) that I still have to do mostly online shopping.

I have USCG vests in the boat, do I actually have to have one on while skiing? The only time the water is ever nice enough for me to want to ski is off hours, so I shouldn't have a problem tangling with "the man". :)

Arkansas requires a USCG approved PFD while doing any water sports. I got a ticket about 10 years ago for barefooting in a suit that was not USCG approved cost me $150 fine. You also have to have all PFD's out, and within reach for every person that is in your boat along with a throwable has to be out.

It is required if you are being towed in michigan. Not necessarily if you are surfing without a rope. You may then have to come up with a fancy explanation of how you got started though since you can't be standing while the boat is moving except when docking.

I agree some laws are good and there is more people on the lakes now than there was 25 years ago but they keep coming up with something new every year. Before long it's going to be against the law to have fun. Last year a friend of mine was out fishing by himself, nobody else was in the boat. A game warden pulled up and ask for his license, life jacket, and fire extinguisher. He showed him it all and then he said, where is your throwable. My buddy ask, why do I need a throwable. He said, because its required by law. My buddy then ask him, well who in the hell is going to throw it to me if I fall in. GW said, you don't have to be a smart a$$ but have a good day and he drove off.

A game warden pulled up and ask for his license, life jacket, and fire extinguisher. He showed him it all and then he said, where is your throwable. My buddy ask, why do I need a throwable. He said, because its required by law. My buddy then ask him, well who in the hell is going to throw it to me if I fall in. GW said, you don't have to be a smart a$$ but have a good day and he drove off.

He might have needed the throwable for someone else.

I am reminded of these things as I was first on scene a couple weeks ago of a bass boat vs. pwc 50 minutes after sunset.

Even if they're wrong, not worth the problem. Once they tell me, I try to not draw their attention by complying. No sense making them angry, they'll just find another reason to hassel you. These days life vest when in the boat, example for the kids, and no hassels from Johnny Law. Had 9 in my Stars and Stripes last year, and a wakeboarders in tow. Everyone in a vest, and no beers to be seen, sheriff waved as we went past.

That's why skiing private is the best. Although we still get a few "visits" of compliance. The idea of wearing a USCG approved for barefoot is ridiculous. You couldnt get up deepwater, and the falls...<shudder>. My jump suit, while not USCG approved, it's WAY more buoyant than anything out there.

When we go elsewhere, we keep the legal requirements on hand but just avoid the areas we know are "trouble spots."

Advance Auto is also a great resource. They often have discounts and credits available when shopping online. I have a store close to my house so I can order online and pick up at the store.

I bought a coil for my F150 last month with a 10% discount and a $25 coupon valid for this month on orders over $50. How can a guy go wrong.

I don't know of any states that require wearing a PFD while doing watersports, but I can't imagine why a person wouldn't.

Oregon does not require USCG approved flotation while doing watersports. They do require you have one in the boat though for everyone using the boat.

I prefer the offensive driving method. :steering: Hate to leave choices to other people who are generally not qualified to make good choices.

AS do I- unfortunately that is probably why I had to take defensive driving!

I just took mine OUT OF THE BAG! LOL. Its soft and feels nice. Maybe a tad bit slimmer material that a standard sweater but it will work.

I hope you get yours before Christmas. It took them 5 days to ship it and not sure my e-mail to them prodded them or not because the next day I had a ship notification. :confused:

I think I was customer#0. I'm at a conference in the US, so they were nice enough to send one to my hotel before their web site was ready. It looks like a quality design and I look forward to installing it.

That is really cool.

Reminds me of when I was in college and would have my boat and jet ski parts sent to my dorm room so my parents did not know what I was buying for the toys. I had to be the only guy in school with jet ski handle pole and a boat cover sitting under my bed.

Received my "New-To-Me" Hyperlite Broadcast 54 wakesurf board....I know that this board is popular as a great starter board.......I have never tried wakesurfing, nor has anyone else in my group, but I figure I'll jump on the bandwagon and give it a whirl.....If I like the sport, I'll keep this thing for the house board and eventually upgrade to a custom-type board or one that is faster and a little more squirrelly

Neil, about that dry suit... It's tempting but I'm 99% sure I can't fit in it unless you got a really big one. I tried my wetsuit on that I picked up over the weekend and let me say it's a good thing I didn't try to put yours on at table rock! It took me and the wife 10 minutes to get it on me, and mine is an extra large!
