    nice work Sam, and welcome to the BOS ! As for the "drysuit removal", I'm staying in mine until some time in June.

    I hate being cold, and last night while @officerfriendly was shivering, I was still warm and dry

    Mine came off last night. Air was 65, water 68. Went with shorts and heater top. Good for this time of year in MT! Sore spray leg today though.

    Even if you had one it would be wet!
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    I always shed my drysuit when the water temp hits 70. I have a swimming pool thermometer haging off the end of my dock. I also have an alterior motive for keeping it on into late May. If tubers and wakeboarders see me and my fellow slalom skiers in drysuits that keeps them off the water a little longer..

    Skied with aqua sphere swim suit last 2 days. It feels great to be out of dry suit.
    Shut up and ski

    Steve, I was at Jim's place. It's skiing great. Amazing view this time of year with all snow in the Missions.

    For me, it'll be drysuit until water is around 55, then spring wetsuit until about 63 or so - then just shorts from there on.
    Lake reaches a maximum of around 80 during summer.

    Justin, does Jim have a plan for the weeds this season? probably see you at No Wake again sometime this season. By the way, congratulations on your first tournament 35 last year!

    Steve, Jim has some chemicals that should take care of the weeds this year, or at least make it skiable. You may not see me at NWL, I'm moving to the Portland/salem area early June. Thanks, thats still the only 35 I've run, glad I did it there!
