Yeah I'm busted. I knew the secret but nothing to do with it, except keeping it a secret. I loved how they planned to do it while you were skiing behind the boat. Glad they were able to pull it off.

Well since I don't have a M.C.. today I built a Prostar 214, and finally found some price ranges of about 70k for a new boat.. Sadly it won't happen for me, as much as I wish I could.

Yes she did.. One major thing came up about 3weeks ago.. I received orders back to CA and I move in June lol.. So everything got put on hold right now.. I wasn't supposed to move until next year..

Now the good news.. I'm moving 30 mins from home and I no longer need to worry about having a truck as I can use my Dads.. Soooooo hopefully this winter when everyone trades them in or tries to sell them I'll pick one up..

I'm also the die hard guy who doesn't care how cold it is to get out on the lake.. lol

Yea I'm going to start looking into it more and more.. Once I move home it'll be easier.. vise trying to buy one now and then shipping it home.

The issue is that my best friend here bought a boat a few months ago.. It's a Yahama 242 Limited.. It's a beautiful boat, rides great and has plenty of power with it's dual jetski type jet engines.. It's been so much fun going out on the water almost every weekend.. moving back to CA where there is no boat is going to suck..

So naturally I must do what is best for me and my family and buy one ahahaha.

Started buffing the starboard side today. Way more work than I thought it was going to be. There was some severe oxidization that the compound wasn't cutting. Used 600 grit sandpaper to cut it, then buffed it, re-sanded, then final buff. Took a solid three hours to do 10 feet.

Didn't have time to complete step 2 & 3 of the polish...just the compound tonight, but there is definitely progress being made. The MC's a new color gray and looks like a new boat!
