    Also starting at -28 Zippy (Richard) ran straight down the line, behind Lee's 1996 MC boat, 1 at 39 1/2 off.  Classic PP, all times were within tolerance. The air temp was 42 and the water was 44 degrees. We did get it on video. Where is it Zippy??  Aren't you going to post it??

    My 2008 SS and 2007 SN - one of only a few times the boat has actually been on the trailer - usually sits lift.

    Here is our 2006 Kubota towing our 2000 MC Prostar 190. I don't think we can compete with the previous rigs but I thought it was worth a shot. I was going to show it hooked up to the 1986 K5 Blazer.

    That's Steve's 1974 Chevy Van, towing the "speed-boat" the day we tested the new outboard up @ Radar.  You can also see just the tail of Eddie's Roadmaster, another awesome tow-rig !

    Sweet Bike! Are you a Bike builder or was it built for you?

  • MAD11MAD11 Posts: 578 Crazy Baller

    Built a few here and there for the past 15 years. Have taken some time off from it the last year or so.  May do one soon. www.marcaustindesigns.com   You can see some of them there. Not much market anymore.

    Mbskier - is that picture from when you ran out of gas ?  You should fix the gas gauge in that fine Ford !

    No Richard, I just fueled up.  I only run out of gas on the way to the boat launch.  My 1/4 mile commute burns alot of gas during the summer...
    </p>
    <p>
     Oh, If you need some more of those AWSA vintage slalom balls I have a bunch of reds and yellows.  You could put Herb's corse back to the way it was during the 74 regionals next summer.  Might be able to find the tow boat as well.

    What is your winter ski schedule look like.  A bit cold over here, but would like to get some weekley skiing in.

     My ski partner is way too modest to post his sick rig so I went through my phone looking for one.  Chevy Tahoe with "The Boss" freshly dried off after a morning set.  If I figured out how to post.

    Here is a ski partner of mine with one of our new trucks. He works part time at the local mastercraft dealer and thought this would be funny........ I think it looks cool wins the most expensive award by far!!

    Last time I went to Angel Fire, there was a snowboarder out there with turnout pants. I geeked out a little, but that's not nearly as cool as towing a Mastercraft with a fire engine. Now if only you could get a ladder truck, you'd be able to get some wicked camera angles to document your sets.
