Too funny - I saw that and immediately went there...

It's become this forum joke after i told the forum about my dad and his boat (the 81 sea ray)... He claimed it was the best ski boat ever made and it was ocean worthy (the sales guy told him so because it had a closed cooling system)... and it could pull 4 skiers, top speed of 41 and on and on and on and on... So, obviously, the 81 sea ray HAS to have a better wake that the 97 LOL

God forbid you tell my dad you've been on a prettier beach than Varadero in Cuba! OMG - imagine ricky ricardo smoking crack!!

Pic i took last week, but this can't compare to Cuba - no way! LMAO

I want to get back to being able to slalom regularly for more than a few minutes at a time without feeling like I was hit by a truck the next day and teach my sons to ski.

two goals for wakeboarding;

1-be able to jump the full wake without bailing.
2-for my girls (6&10) to be able to do more besides just ride right behing the boat.

Lake Holiday outside of Crawfordsville will be home base, it is a nice little 150 acre private lake that I have a couple of lots on about 45 minutes away. I grew up spending a lot of time on Racoon and have a buddy with a permanent campsite there now so I'm sure we'll be there some too.

amen to this. A few years ago i was out skiing 3 times a week. Last summer I think i skied twice.....10 good cuts and I was exhausted.

My goal this year is to finally learn to ski the course. I have the course and the guys that ski it all the time willing to teach so hopfully this year I will run 15 off.

20 years and 40 pounds make a big difference. The idea of a course is intriguing, I did pick up a "real" ski off craigslist and if it works out I might make a trip to the Buckeye Bash so the boys can see what kind of cool stuff is possible with practice and get a taste of the mastercraft community. Overall though I want to have fun with my kids on the water.
