    Just had a brief discussion with @Rod5 in passing at the marina. There is talk of another early morning trip with him one upping me on his wakefoil (which I encouraged) and rev10s (jealous). Perhaps we can get someone with a drone to capture wakeboarding and wakefoiling tomorrow morning with a whole bunch of people and show the June group who the cool kids really are. Yes that is a throw down so what do you say July group? Party at the infinity pool until midnight and knock off the hangover with some hair of the dog, tow sports, and Advil (most of us are middle aged afterall).

    Just reply with #challenge_accepted and show up to the docks at 7am.

    @Betik you need to fly in for this.... Goooooo jetboaters Gooooo (inside joke @Betik expense for those who crossed on Saturday).

    Perhaps @Bruce can convince la vagabonde to join us as he is the man.

    Yes I have been drinking all day but wiil not back down even after the hangover sets in.

    Come on stateside followers pile on the peer pressure.

    Actually, the schematic on the one you posted and #scottinTexas shows all of the lamps are fed by bow nav light switch. So if the others are working, the speedo should be too. Check the bulb (you can even swap it with one of the tach lights) and see if that fixes it.

    Yup! Smiles all around. My 10 month old didn’t fuss but she definitely doesn’t like her life jacket. Any suggestions for an infant life jacket that doesn’t fit like sausage casing?

    Knocked out the first day jitters on my first jet boat experience. Lots of chop for some reason even though it didn’t seem windy. I never realized how many weedy areas were around Lake Minnetonka but that clean out port is insane. I pulled out gobs of weeds several times and was back to planing in under a min.

    I also didn’t realize that there really isn’t a reverse. Thanks to LTE I turned a failed forward approach at docking at the end of the day to a 180 reverse to nestle up nice and close. Would have looked planned if only I didn’t have my fenders and ties one the opposite side of the boat. Docking for lunch was a breeze though. Part luck I’m certain that the perfect spot was available at the bar but I’m also gonna claim some level of competence here from my pontoon days.

    And the last feature worth commenting on is the no wake and cruise modes. Coming from an outboard to a jet I couldn’t imagine not having these available. The throttle response is sick. I’m considering waiting until the kids aren’t with me and I’ll actually wear a life vest while piloting to really see how it handles.

    Final share today, my kids came up with 3 options for the boat name. Caffeina, Cheesy Fingers and John Deere. #needmoreoptions #notonmyboat #youcallitwhatyouwantwhen youhaveajob

    "cool kids" #falseboatingnews

    a safe passage for all is welcome. Alpha team charges 2 bears apiece for this Sunday privileged.

    ALSO: I wanted to repeat what @ThatJeepGuy posted on the previous page in case it was missed (or someone was napping) Bahia Mar fuel docks are closed this weekend...... fuel up before dipping or at the marina near the bridge.

    sorry for the repeat, but its an important one to catch thanks @ThatJeepGuy

    Yes, thanks @Kurtis Riches & R7 Watersports! You guys are welcome, but I'll admit my interest may have been self motivated... :shamefullyembarrased: Thanks for playing along!

    Money doesn't buy happiness, but it can buy a boat AND a wake foil... that certainly will give me a few moments of pleasure... :D

    I'm hoping to give it a go this weekend. :nailbiting: I hope you all get a chance to enjoy yours soon.

    Julie at R7 would love to see some of your pics and videos of all of us shredding the wake on our new rides. Tag #R7watersports in your social media.
