Parents were not boaters.At 12 ,we visited an aunt that was renting a cottage on a lake.The boat had a 40 hp Johnson wich seems like a monster at that time.Got up on my third try ,made around the lake and never skied again until i was 25 behind a friend's cuddy with a 4.3 liters.
Got hooked on skiing,bought a copy of a Glastron SS150 with a Merc 85 hp.Then upgrade to a bigger outboard with a Johnson V4 140.Did a complete restoration of that boat,blew engine twice,change for a Mercury 115, and blew the Merc too!
And finally,left life in the city for living fulltime on a lake.Best decision of my life!!!
Bought my MC in 02 after 12 years of drooling over the backcover of Waterski Mag .
Not much of a boater anymore,much more a skier!
Keep skiing!!!
