I tether mine to a small orange float. It's only come off one time. It does float with the foam add-on but I appreciate the peace of mind.

I love Santa Barbara but I think trying to slalom there without lakes would be frustrating. Take up ocean surfing, kiteboarding, mountain and road biking and sailing!

I heard somewhere that you should pump up the idle speed to around 1200 RPM to reduce the battery load? Does anyone know if this makes sense?

A couple other ideas

Hello all:

I did a few things when I put in my ballast system to shorten the fill times. I don't like waiting either - lake time is precious up here!

This is exactly correct. If you need further advice on Deutsch connectors either myself or others can certainly help you sort that out. I enjoyed using them once I sorted out their system.

airbags
