I may be a Neanderthal, but I've dinged props on boat lift and rocks and other stuff several times. If the damage is small, there's no problem pounding the bent edges out yourself. I won't be...

HO 41 Tail is a fine glove - excellent grip and durable. I think I'm also into the 3rd season for my gloves, and I ski quite a lot each year.

I agree with the Supra Sunsport recommendation. A friend of mine has a '93 Sunsport that is a good all-around boat, better suited for wakeboarding than slalom, but not too bad for free-skiing. ...

I had a '76 19" Sea Ray before I bought my 205. I haven't missed that wake very much! Might have been decent for boarding, though.

It's a quick connect device between the main rope and the ski handle bridle. I've always thought they were a superfluous piece of gear, and not that effective.
