got out for a bit saturday all by myself...hooked up with a buddy and tried wake boarding...sucked at it...then tried skis, sucked at that too...i think i'll stick to being behind the wheel instead of on the end of a rope.

Now that the Lake is warm why do you need one of those?

But honestly I could not find the kind of rythm I was used to at 40-50 mph... I'm not a good captain for sure!

Some good south wind today but not that bad, 3 to 4 foot waves... funny how a cruiser slows down when plowing thru the big waves instead of our go fast wich more likely bang on the wave or walk above instead of plowing...

next time on the lake should be with the 35-7, can't tell when...

Anyone knows who owns this boat?
Jeff, That Sunsation belongs to Mort and Bev Kellas from Chazy.Its a 2001 I think.
