28 off 36 mph

Decided to show off a bit. Took this video on Sunday. Sking behind my partners '97 205. What do you think?

It is a big file and takes a bit to load so be patient. This was taken on my Olympus Stylus 720sw with my wife panning by hand (going to order a Trakker soon) that is her toe in the vieo at the end

Man, wouldn't you know it. Quicktime. I'll have to wait until I get home.

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.

Real nice, Brian.

I sure need to go the 36 mph soon. My 28's are getting consistent at 34 mph, but being only 27 years old, we both know what speed I should be at.

Do you think it will be difficult to change speeds? Any advice as to the best way to do it? It's intimidating to me right now, but if I want to start skiing tournaments, I need to be at the right speed.

You're skiing well though.

Gotta start skiing 36mph. If you are sking 28 34mph you will have no problem. Let the rope out to 22 and bump up the speed. It will take you a set or two to get the timing but you will get it quick.

Quit the girls speed cold turkey man! You won't look back.

You've got a sweet site it looks like... what course do you have? is it permanent or portable? I see Novice bouys for the ladies and kids! Must have for a family day on the water. You look good! Keep the video's coming. warm enough water is only a few weeks away from us Midwesterners...

It is an old Accuflot that is in serious need of replacement. We had it rigged up so the tension stayed the same no matter what the water level. After the hurricane though it we now have to tighten and loosen. Our ski dock replacement is now our first priority so I think the course is going to have to give us another season or two worth of service.

When I click on the link it goes to the putfile website and then all I get is a "Q" with a "?" overlayed?
