We enjoy listening to music while on the water, However, We play the music while idling or anchored and mute the music while pulling a skier.

Lotsa tunes when #1 son is in boat - i think he has a zillion songs in that &**& MP3 player, and none of them have a melody j/k..

Tunes get paused when someone is in the water; they're never loud enough to interfere with instructions from the spotter when towing.
2002 MariStar 210 VRS 330hp, Tower, Perfect Pass Stargazer, Bimini, Triple KGB Ballast, 400w Clarion XMD3, Bennett X-14 Wake Plate, 1000+ hours and still running great!

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pristine, well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "-- WOW--What a Ride!"

MP3 player hooked up and playing when wakeboarding or wakesurfing, the mute button gets hit when the rider is being picked up, once up back on with the tunes though, skiing has no tunes though

When cruising, I have the CD player kicking the entire time. If pulling a less experienced rider, I turn it off. If an experienced skier/boarder is riding that I don't need to talk to much, I'll leave it on.

I go crazy without the music.

It's funny, when I bought my current ride I really wanted a boat with a tower and tower speakers. Those were planned for more stereo useage in the boat. My 95' just had a cheesy CD player and 4 cheesy speakers. Well.....my current boat was a "slight" upgrade in that dept.

Whats wild is I have had the stereo on only a handful of times since my ownership. Somehow I think it will get it's fair share of use this weekend though with all the friends headed our way for the weekend. Now if the darn weather would cooperate.....
