Howdy all,

Have any of you seen the new Waterski Mag.? I made the magazine as a boat driver! Woo Hoo!

Course the lake is frozen and the boat isn't running... Details...details... :D

Lord knows I would never make the mag. for my skiing abilities!

Have a great weekend,
Jeff

I just want my copy of the magazine. I have worn out last months. My luck it will come today. Would have been perfect airplane material between the 4 million e-mails I will try to clear at 30K feet

I am glad I am not the only one who hasn't gotten the latest issue. Do you remember the days when having a subscription actually meant you got the magazine during the month of the current issue? It is March 17th and I still don't have this month's issue.

Haven't gotten mine yet either. Not that I haven't been checking twice daily since I found out about the article.

Congrats Peachman.

CJ, I think it's the April issue we're talking about. March came really early. The BBG is Jan/Feb.

Mine came yesterday too, had to page through to find the famous articles. Kind of cool to sort of know someone in the magazine!!

Still think the article on the tige would've been cooler if it would've sunk or something

did anyone ever hear the diagnosis on the frozen boat?

motor shot?
blew out the freeze plugs?
started right up?
hull damaged?

does the guy just need a .40 bullet to go ahead and send it on down to Davey Jones' locker?

Too damn funny. Got the mag this weekend myself & was shocked to see how big a story the picture got. Those pics are going to be one of those urban legend emails flying around the net every year or two! Jeff & that Tige are "infamous"!! ;)

received my WSM saturday but was saddened that with all the buzz ...... I really expected to see another pic of King Doug in the magazine!

I know, Ric. If I was smart, I'd have had a picture of me taken sprawled out next to the seat. That, or I'd have put he mirror up and had someone else take the pic so my face could be in the mirror. As it turned out, my hand and the boat got in there. Plus, they mentioned my name about 5 times. Good enough for me. :)

At this point the boat is stilll on the boat dolly, the lake is just starting to open up around the edges. If the weather continues as it has, the lake will probably be open in the next week or so. Once that happens, we can look into the boat a little more. So far we know the freeze plugs we blown out, we do not know if there is any further motor damage, although I suspect there is?

Other than the heater core, the rest of the boat should be okay, the hull, running gear, interior, etc... all seem fine.

What is going on over at WS mag? I got the April issue yesterday and have not gotten the March issue. It is somewhat comforting to realize it is not just me but dang I have "lake fever" bad. WS mag is the only thing that can sustain me until the water warms up.

I went to Ambush the other night "to just look" to try to address the lake fix that I need right now. Wound up buying a new life jacket. I can't wait much longer until it warms up.

Ok, First I want to say congrats on the write up! Nice pics. I still say someone should be shot for leaving a boat to freez in a lake..... I don't care what kind it is :rant:


Second On another 'freez' story....

A buddy of mine has an '04 sport nautique and he decided to winterize it himself last fall. He has owned inboards(all CC's) for about 15 years, and has done toe job many times.
To make a long story short, this is the first boat he has had with a heater and .. well it ain't pretty! No antifreez to heater core and some cold weather and presto, we have about 1300 in damage! Oh well, live and learn!

Hey, even CC owners mess up once in a while. There was a guy on Sammamish a few years ago. Nice new Air Nautique. He pulled it up on the lift & went in the condo. A couple hours later the boat had tipped off the lift & was sitting on the dock. Guess he pulled it a bit far forward & either a gust of wind blew it over or the mud under the lift feet gave way. Oooops!
