I want the ski to big enough and relaxed enough so that the boat passengers are more uncomfortable going across the water than me! ha!

I know no matter where I go with my parents on their boat, we can never seem to find glass waters. I think mainly because we don't get up early enough, but I digress. If I am going to ski, I need a big ski (since I am a big boy, 6'1", 260 lbs) and I need it to handle chop fairly well.

East TX, does that say MAHA? What is the model?

No way I can afford that. The HO is like $380 or something. I think I heard triumph thrown out there. How much is one of them?

This is the recreational version of the Maherajah Longboard, which I can't seem to find on his site at the moment. It's 7 feet long, has a 1.5" side cut, and cuts through chop at up to 45 mph like it's not even there. It came with 150' of ski rope, which is fantastic.

If I recall, price with front highwrap and a rtp with case was about $800 in 2004. Will keep the ski for the long term.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Looks fun, but I think it will be a while before I can afford something like that.
