That would be Dr. JD(John David). My skiing buddy made the bell. It works well.

Judging by the altitude he reached during that dunk I would check to see if there was another dog in the yard if you know what I mean? ;)
JK! Way to go Tex recovery is a non factor with great kids like that! A bonus yes but not even neeed! Just sit back and enjoy! ;) Sorry I forgot, save the Vikes for MMIII! ;) That would be Dr. JD(John David). My skiing buddy made the bell. It works well.

Get the nose of the board closer to the water. I have yet to try one of the new boards, but my buddie's old longboard (from the 50's), when I'm on it behind my 190, the nose is barely off of the water.

Your wake is too washy and flat. Speed up a bit and move some weight to that side of the boat. Sometimes a little bit of a turn will help clean it up.

It should look like this.........

Simple, just sell your boat and a guitar that you don't play very much anymore and you're there my friend. Just think how good your future bride will look in it! She likes it, that means a lot, she could be the next (my wife is awesome thread), backing the trailer and pulling yur' sorry arse! :D

I am usually anywhere between 10-11mph depending upon weight/conditions. It will vary from set up to set up. I would try 11.5 and see what happens. Were you weighted, other than the ladies?

Stevo, I just gotta keep my 91. its like getting rid of a child. I spent 20+ years yearning for a Mastercraft, I cant just abandon this one after owning it only a year. I have a bond with this boat. :) Sorry...

your boat is awesome, you wont have any trouble selling it. :D

I understand Stevo. My 91 is very clean. only 260 hrs on it now(171 when I got it). its a one of a kind clean boat.

I was just sayin, if I WAS in the market, you would have a sale :toast: You have a great boat!!! :D

I got the boat put back together around 10 pm. I put it on the charger and went to bed.

When we got to the marina (25 miles away) and got the boat in the water, it didn't have enough battery to turn over (it did when I left the house). Had to buy an $80 battery from the marina, but they installed it for free.
Got on the water and opened it up across the lake. The old gas (with stabil) would only get me to 4850 rpm and about 39mph. When we got to the cove we normally ski (filled with wakeboarders, of course), I heard the bilge pump running, so I tossed the anchor and started looking. I had remembered the plug but had forgotten the drain petcock on the manifold. Good news is that filling the bilge with hot water killed the rat pee smell and probably the rat.
Since the wakeboats had killed the cove for skiing, we decided to leave (did I mention that I had 8 aboard?). Went to weigh anchor, but it didn't weigh anything. No anchor on the end of the rope.
Gave up, dicided to go home. On the way to the ramp, the bimini straps let go. Broken hook.
Considering the way the day went, I felt good just getting home alive.
