What's going on with your ballast control? My KGB stopped working.

Me, just need new guide pads. I may swap out the trailer buddy for a guide,

It's 'the usual' 2012 model year BIG and GDIG issues that hopefully will be fixed by the recent software update that others have talked about in different threads. The specific issue for me is that I have no reliable indication of what the ballast tank level is. I.e. it can read a zero level on the gauge, but if i open the hatch and look at the KGB, it may still be 60% full. Plus once the gauge reads zero, the pump turns off so I can't continue to empty it easily. Big problem for skiing, but not so much for boarding.

I have new interior going in right now, Perfect pass installed next. Both my props refinished (OJ owes me some money and an explanation for telling me they were ruined), Finished wiring cup lights, LED's in cup holders and last a snap on cover that matches my Bimini. (stays in a slip outside 24/7)

Still to do:
Garmin GPS/depthfinder w/ radar
Underwater lights
Fresh air exhaust
start engine clean up (shine up)
plumb the ballast

Garmin GPSMAP 536s. You have to buy a transducer and a radar.

My wish list came true today-thank god!! I can waterski with bilateral knee replacements-right one last Sept, left one in November. Air temp 67-water 62. I thought about the mammalian reflex for a second when I hopped off the platform I get up on two and had the ski gone by the time I hit the boat bubbles. My balance is much better now, NO PAIN, and my stamina is much better!! I'm 30 pounds lighter this year so I may have to make a few adjustments to my Seige. I'll never be a fantastic skier but for a 56 year old with 2 new knees I'll take it!! I caught my surgeon in the ICU the other night and we discussed it again; he said "just make sure it's glass, not rough out there". I'm not "old" until I can't waterski any more!

Hoping to ski just one last time. With rods, screws and a neuro stimulator in my back. Surgeons have given the okay, only glassy waters , and to start only on the boom. My kids aren't old enough to remember me skiing or footin. May even take one of my Dr's out for a weekend.
