I'm sure there are more around. I left in early 81. Came back a few times as a "guest".. I remember negotiating with Ski Nautique for the boats. My sister was there in the early 80's.
I still have my EP honeycomb skiis and the Connely tricks. WOW.. those were the days. Skiing all day and drinking all night at Stash O'neals on State St.

Paradox,
After being up here for almost one year, I can see why you avatar says Florida. I am ready to get out of here already. Still feel bad for those affected. 94 west bound is shut down between the rock river (johnson creek/lake mills)

Supposed to get more rain in the next few days again. For up-to-date on the flooding and etc, check www.channel3000.com
They have some pretty good pics. Monday and Tuesday we have had employees leave to either pack up their houses or help family evacuate pending potential dam breaks.

I had a yellowish-green EP and a solid wood Connely (anyone remember what they were made of? it was beautiful) back around '77 - '78.

LMAO

At 41 your still a kid. (i'm almost 51)
Back in 70's 80's the LOTO was different and it was great. You had a 21' boat and the king of the lake.. Now.. all condos.. huge cruisers.. can't ski.. floating docks takes up half the lake. I miss the old LOTO..
My old EP is Blue and red. Used it last summer in the Tampa bay area for about 10 minutes and I thought I died. Legs, arms, back, calfs sore as heII. Back in the days I used to go for hours.. That's 30+ years ago.. I will do a bit skiing this summer and try to get in a better shape. SKiing is great excersize. But ... damn it's hard to get back in the boat when you old and out of shape.. (correction.. older ) I still feel young.. but my body thinks otherwize.
