River Giveth, River Taketh away
edited August 2017
Our river typically provides hours of great water skiing every season....The river gods were mad today. Rat Bast*rds. Ash tree limb, water logged just enough it floated 1/2" below the surface, but still solid.
Is that really your finger gone?

Rivers can do that...how much damage to the boat/prop?
Dave Ross--die cancer die
at first I thought the same thing. I think he photoshopped it out to keep it a G rated post.
WE use to have a massive problem with that on the Wailua River in Kauai. Not only half sunk logs, but waterlogged coconuts just below the surface. Broke an ankle on one of those. It became standard to make a pass through the course looking for these before you skied.

, Yes, kept the pic G rated....though I had a view choice words for the log.
, no damage to boat. Prop damage with some mild vibration at 34, but not enough to warrant replacing until after the season. Shaft still turns true and strut/rudder were not affected. Luckily was only running trick speed otherwise it could have been a lot worse.
