Cleaned, then cleaned some more. Tightened the trailer brakes. Fixed a poer outlet. Removed some old license stickers. That about sums it up.

dried out my boat after Prostar19 swamped me with his X-Star Saturday night... nothing like a 3 foot wake off a fully loaded X-Star hitting your nose

it was quite funny

Nothing. Too hot (100+) at the lake so it sat in storage.

Replaced alternator belt, re-plumbed speedometer tubing, installed loaner tach until replacement comes in. And went to the lake... was pleased to find that lubing the weights/springs in the distributor seemed to cure the top speed problem. Today, the GPS reported 43mph at WOT (thanks TMCNo1).

Haha, I had the same thing happen to me for the first time. As I was powering down from a U-turn, there were waves coming at me and then...it hit and it seemed the nose went under and like a ton of water piled in the boat! it was too funny...

Since none of my normal crew options could go -- they all had other stuff going on -- I just went, fueled her up, re arranged the skis, boards and other gear -- and cruised around for about an hour.

AND DADGUM!! Not a single other boat in any of the four main coves we look to play in. If I could have driven her remote control, I would have taken myself skiing!!! GLASS everywhere, 85 degrees, and no way to play!!!
