That is always a bad feeling when you have a boat full and then start having engine problems. At least they were not far from home. That is good info to know about the water temp. I am sure Martin is similar, but I will find out next weekend. I am the same way too about getting in the water. I like the temps a little closer to 70 and with my shorty wet suit, it is just about right.

i've had to be towed twice on smith. both times i was lucky to find someone fairly quickly. i figure there may be some karma involved, so i always try to help when i can. i think i've towed 3 in the past few years.

Hey all Alabama MC'ers...what are you plans for the Memorial Day weekend?

I think we're looking at day trips to Smith Lake on Saturday and Monday. But might hit it Sunday too!

New wakesurf board arrives this week, so Saturday will be a day of experimenting with surfing and teaching my wife the controls on the new boat.

Weather's looking great with 80's and low chance of rain.

We'll probably be up on Harding.

I think we are going to Martin the last week of June. My wife has class that week so not sure when we'll get there.

smith this weekend for me. took the x30 up yesterday and left it at duncan. spent a good bit of time cleaning all the junk off the dock. went to double springs to register the most recent addition to the fleet (race prepped SXR800). if any of you guys own land in winston county, those folks are the nicest and most helpful DMV folks around. i had to wait maybe 30 seconds to get helped. got my registration in about 10 minutes.

Lake Martin all weekend and Monday!!! I can't wait! I get to get on the Sky Ski for the third time and hopefully learn more to get the hang of it. Looks like I will be doing some early morning runs with all the traffic that I am expecting, provided I can find a driver.

JAFo9, you got an SXR800?! That is one of my favorite machines. That and the Yamaha Superjet. Have fun with that.

i've got a round nose superjet as well. its got a plate/grate/impeller and a B-pipe. i've been looking for a SXR for a while for the wife and kids. they are getting hard to find so i jumped on an ex race ski that i found in atlanta. it has an ADA head, B-pipe, extended plate, grate, custom impeller in a pump that has been set back 5 degrees, and tubbies. i've ridden it some but for now i still prefer the SJ. my son, however, prefers the SXR. my younger girls ride my stock 650sx.

i'd love to sky ski, i just can't justify the price of admission. good luck this weekend.

Price of admission is high, but then again, with all your toys, it sounds like you have that high admission price taken care of. You are welcome to come try my ski out if you are ever at Lake Martin. I do not have a high end set up like some of the more serious guys have, but I just want to learn on this entry level model and see if I can progress a little, then maybe I will upgrade to another higher end ski.
