What did you start out behind

It's a rainy day today, skiing doesn't look good in the forecast, so sitting out on the porch listening to all the sounds of creatures around here and perusing the Interweb looking at boats. Came across a boat similar to what I learned to ski behind. The old girl had a 35hp outboard and could actually pull 2 slalom skiers. You want to talk about being dragged for a long time before you could get on top of the water! And the skis/slalom we had were the flat bottom wooden type. Dad bought a new combo set after my sister and I learned to ski, and we thought we were in heaven, still the flat bottom wood type, but they were new and shiny. Still have them today!

When it wasn't the 15' StarCraft aluminum with a 5.5hp Evinrude (plenty of get up and go when you're 4yo). It was this beauty. I can still taste it. My grandfather thru a 60hp Evinrude on the back. She could deliver the mail back then.
