I haven't tried the Freeride but the Triumph is a great ski. But it's also $60 more per your info. I agree with JMLVMI, you really can't go wrong either way. Either one is going to be a huge...

I have one sitting on the floor in the garage. It's not bent but the last 6 inches or so are missing - the shaft broke just ahead of the propeller.

My boat is on a lift all summer, and mostly all we do is ski. Very little cruising or pulling tubes. A good morning ski only puts about 15-20 minutes of time on the engine. So in 22 years of...

I'd have to pick PWCs. Standups don't usually put out as big a wake as the sit-down three person PWCs, so I give them a bit more slack. On Saturday we were out on Carrs Inlet (part of Puget Sound)...

I was out cruising around on Lake Washington one day last year and one of those mega-yachts had two people wake-surfing behind it at the same time, putting out a massive wake. And for safety's sake,...

I would take off the prop and use the round end of a ball peen hammer with a piece of wood behind the area you are hammering. Take your time and try to limit the hammer strikes to the damaged area. ...

Ninjaneer-that tower looks like it's on backwards. Also, if you mount it that far back how in the world are you going to slalom ski off the pylon?

Big Air makes some nice towers - did you...

My bunks are 18.5" apart at the front and 38" apart at the back, measured inner side to inner side. In addition, the bunks are pretty flat at the back, mirroring the flat bottom in the stern of the...

I might try it - I also get lots of spiders on my cover and they must crawl underneath, too. I keep my boat on an uncovered lift, and always get a lot of webs between the boat and the dock. Partly...
