ccriders When I was out on a test sail with the surveyer on the boat I eventually bought, one of those go fasters flew by. After a pause he said; "Around here we call them things converters. They convert very expensive gasoline into a lot of noise."
I had a good chuckle.

merc2dogs Yep, where we go it's a private lake, with a max depth of 5'. So we don't need the crane, just a couple of big guys and a rowboat or two.

We always have fun, it's actually the only reason I purchased a snowmobile.

Yep, that is what they do, 'cept you need a crane to pull it up from the bottom. 30' of rope tied to a milk jug so they can find it.drag you inside ski in the water to turn. Most important is to keep your belt dry. If you care to learn more, search under the term watercross. You find some pretty wild stuff.

More power is always more fun, no matter what the sport.
You mean like this?
