Great article/video and awesome deal. Hell, insurance on a boat is nearly $600/yr.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one that has dreamed of an indoor slalom lake!

I remember asking my dad, who is a farmer, if any of our land could be used to build a slalom lake and then sell lots for homes around it when I was in high school. Being a farmer, he wasn't too keen on the idea and didn't see how it would work in NW Iowa.

Still have the dream. How cool it would be to provide that opportunity to people! A few runs each day myself and then pull others. Talk about never working another day in my life.

Thanks for sharing story.
