Yea he didn't really say...but the ski-doc is $59 and the Wakeye is ~$250. That sealed it for me.

Yea I was on a '92 Ski Brendella getting filmed yesterday and you can't see any of my turns due to the spray. Hopefully my '00 195 is better (higher freeboard-newer hull).

Really? 35' off? - those marks are standing straight up - my goal is to get a nice rhythm on my trip to Canada and then head to Liquid Edge and run the course... and see how I suck at turning buoys...lol
