Talking Towed a lakelice yesterday...

Was coming back to the launch yesterday, and there was a guy on a jetski floating down the river. He looked bored and there was no reason for him to be where he was, so I checked to see if he was broken down. Sure enough he needed a tow. I threw him a line and cleated it while he tied it to the eye on the front of his ski. He gave me the thumbs up, and I asked where to.

THE GUY NEEDED TO GO ABOUT TWO FREAKIN' MILES!!! Oh well, I got the HP. I ran it up to about 3000rpms! Had the boat up on a plane and the dude on the ski was laughing his a$$ off. (I am sure doing this is dangerous, but I couldn't see why not. ) When I got him back, he said he had never been towed so fast in his life. (He works on boats.) I even picked the drives up for a sec, but I was afraid the rooster tail would blow him off the ski.

You should hosed him
Cameron I though you had it for sale?Did he offer to buy a beer

We towed a buddy that was to drunk to even sit on the jet ski. came off plan at the Marinna and it past us . He had left the key on and while towing it it must of started up

I also towed a little STV tunnel once . it planed out but we went slow with that one.

If there not flagging us down I figure they don't need help very bad

Strip... Got the call, but I dunno about his buyer. He is trying to get rid of a 21' Malibu ski boat, and he wants 12K. I am not really opposed to a trade (it would give me something to tool around in), but 12k for a boat that old sounds a little crazy.
