Depending how big you are, the Connelly Big Daddy is pretty easy. You can do a fair bit on it, but if you want to run the course on one there's some mods to be done. These days there are better options for that. For general use, I can get up behind a 140hp 17' I/O with 6 people in the boat. I can ski on it reasonably about 28, but with what I've done to it it's good at 30 in the course, max 32. For free skiing, you have to give it penty of time to set up the turn, but long carving turns generating good angle can be had at 34, and they feel nice.
I spent most of my money on booze, broads and boats. The rest I wasted. - Elmore Leonard
