Adios amigos I'm checking out.

My summer started 2 years ago when I bought my boat. It has been probably the best 2 years of my life. Wakeboarding year round and even turning my slalom boat into a surf machine. My 15 year old sportstar has been the most reliable piece of equipment I have ever owned. However my health and back have gone down the crapper. Living in pain everyday for 4 months now has made me realize that my days on the water have come to an end. I would like to thank everyone for making team tech such a great place. I have not posted much but not a day has gone by that I have not been on this site reading and learning about boats. My boat has been sold this week and with that being said. I bid you adieu!

I have a clear understanding about back pain. sorry it has driven you o this point. Best of luck in the future. Remember, you don't have to own a boat, or even a Mastercraft to hang out here.

Oh no! Don't give up yet!!!! Sounds like you had a little something like me.... Only back ache I've ever had was two years ago, and it was hardly nothing. Then two Sundays ago, out of nowhere, my back went out. After a week of miserable pain and barely being able to crawl, I had surgery late Saturday night. Best thing ever! Now I am pain free... Dr couldn't explain what happened to me, just said it was an old injury that finally went out.... Ruptured disc, bone spur, bone fragments from vertebrae, and when he cut the hole said fluid spewed out!!! All of these were ganging up on a nerve.

I have always been one to be careful how much I lifted, lift with legs and not back. So maybe just genetics??? Anyways, I already feel better!

Hope all gets better with you too! Sorry to see you have to give to something you obviously love so much.. Myself, I've been in an mc since 2001. Bought my second one about five weeks ago and only put eight hours on it so far, very disheartening! But Dr said two months and I'll be back at it. Hope you get to as well!!!!!!
