Let the season begin! Goals for the year...

So psyched to begin season 2 of our MC journey. Successfully de-winterized the boat (thanks to Eastie for the checklists) and we're set for the shakedown cruise tomorrow morning! Still have to detail it and clean up the teak, but I'll do that soon.

Goals for the year:

* Run the course
* Get my wife slaloming again
* Get my 2 year old to ride behind the boat on his trainer/tube without screaming
* Teach at least 10 friends and their kids about the joy of waterskiing!

You got it...but there will be no going in the water! 65* is my limit and we're only at 60.

Awesome! I can't wait to get out with the kids.

I have the same goals but I have the reverse order thinking life will be easier that way. Or at least less hurt-full.

Dont wait. Get a full wetsuit so you can enjoy your boat and skiiing early and late in the season. I finally broke down and got one last year. 45 degrees is my start but unfortunatley my lake is still solid.

I have a goal this year like yours, ski the course.

Not specifically boat related, but my boat helped me get to this point so I am ready to advance. Be self-sufficient kite surfing. Enter the water at a beach and go upwind enough to come back out at the same place and avoid "the walk of shame." I'm heading to South Padre Island, Texas next week to try to make this happen.

Lose 30-35 pounds and I am half way there (I eat nothing white and it is working).
Teach both my girls to slalomn. They almost have it but not quite.
Learn to jump wake to wake on a board at my old age.
Get up on a board with my youngest on my shoulders.
Find someone that can teach my youngest how to do a backflip on her board.
Learn to surf behind the boat and teach my girls the same.
Oh and teach my oldest girl to ride a wakeboard and a kiteboard. She can't ride one stick right now.

Not break anything will be a good start!

Hope to go invert this year! Maybe this week


Teach as many people to surf as possible. I see it being a huge fun factor for everyone on board.

Spend many hours behind the boat. My goal is 100 hours!
