Hey Candyman! I did the same thing once on Lake Erie I was in a
14 sea doo challenger running full throttle in 4 footers. I gotta admit it was pretty stupid.( but also fun as hell at the time)

Obnoxus,
I think I'll keep the Fountain. I wonder if his new boat will be surfable also. I don't think anyone will beat Sharkeys pics.

That picture was taken in the middle of Lake Michigan. We were on the way to St. Joe for lunch. The lake had barefoot ski water about 30 miles from Hammond. Next thing I know Thumper is out on the deck with his better half at the sticks. Glad I had the camera.

Sorry I forgot the disclaimer. Don't try this unless you are certifiably CRAZY!

Dan

I had the 13 in front of my 28 this weekend at SKATERFEST. It sure put it into perspective of just how small that boat really is... It just amazes me even more how that boat handles the rough water........

It looks like it handles the rough water by staying out of it

Default Good point...

Come to think of it - I've rarely seen Sharkey's boat in the water unless it was at rest. The ultimate "prop-rider". Of course, it could have something to do with the way it's being driven.....

I was going to ask why Sharkey is never looking forward in any of those pictures, but then I realized that, at that attitude, the only thing to see in front is blue sky.
