1st rule of offshore:

Trim up for heli's . . . . you might not get another chance.

Matt, I don't think we're going to make it. Too much other stuff going on.

GeeterB, I don't think theres a better sound out there than all that horse power coming off and on as you fly!

Chris, Doing it again in Spring? I'm in....Let's see if I can match or beat this one.

At that point, having a trailer hitch ball mounted on the bottom of your seat comes in handy for holding you in the boat. I think they only install them in Fountains and Activators though.


I was there with my Fountain (doing better than 60) but was unable to get much air... I guess it's just the boat

Great Pic!!

Tried that in my 1987 Top Gun on Lake Winnebago 3 weeks ago at 45 mph while doing some tuning work on my engines. Came down and landed under the bolster, folded up like a pretzel, my left ankle bent up staring at me. Ouch!! Crutches for 6-8 weeks. Wish I was a strong as my kevlar Cig!
