Slalom course is an anchor, right????

I know, what this site needs is more pictures, and I'm so mad I didn't have my phone with me.

Picture this, I ride my youngest son over to the slalom course area on our wave runner. No, we weren't going to take it through the course. I wa actually heading over to see what stupidity I would find, and see if whatever was done could be fixed before I ski the course in the morning.

I was not disappointed. It's normal to see boats tied to the turn balls. But imagine finding a boat that pulled the start gate ball up over the bow of the boat, and wrapped the cable around the bow cleat. The buoy itself was dangling in the air over the bow. I thought of saying something, but I have a motto: never argue with idiots, 'cause they just won't understand.

So I took another look, kicked myself for not having my phone, and headed away. Priceless.

putter over to the boat and politely ask him to untie the course from his boat so you and your son can get in a couple of sets and you wouldn't mind him watching from the anchor you set just for him a little ways from the slalom course

Tough to do with your son in tow, but you might have explained to him what he was tied off to.
