You commented on my boat recently. It's good to know of someone else with the same boat. I might keep in touch with you to compare notes from time to time if you wouldn't mind. I got my boat last september from the original owner. I've really enjoyed it. I wasn't sure if I wanted the tower, but we have used it quite a bit when we have had lots of people and kids in the boat. They don't mind being hooked up to the tower when they are skiing, which give us more seating. We're not much into wakeboarding even though we've tried it some. I always end up saying "take this darn board and throw me my HO". See ya, Steve.
