    I go to the Safari ramp too if its full at the other one :D. I will use those small launches and deal w/ the sandbars over the launching in St Andrews park any day of the week! I didn't care for the rough water that gets churned up in that little outing in the park they have you tie off at and the sea wall looked like my boat would have gotten beaten up by it. Hope to see you guys out there if y'all make it down again the same week. Gonna try that kitchen on the water or whatever the food boat is docked.

    It is VERY sturdy! I yanked on it very hard and tugged my boat around in the garage with it lol. Pretty excited this may be a good foundation to start from with a single jet.

    There is so much suction power that when you unlatch it you better be sure your hand is out of the way as I found out it will smack you pretty dang hard upon release!!! Keep hand away from latch! Or else....

    I can imagine :D

    Interestingly when I was ordering my stuff on amazon it told me other people recently bought laynards so I found this bright colored one with a carabiner I may buy. I like the bright color for the water. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003E3TJT8/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

    Another with higher load capacity. Not that the suc gate is going to be overly heavy anyways. https://www.amazon.com/US-15-TL-Wor..._rd_wg=RQzi6&refRID=JV75XS3C376D7X4AR9PW&th=1

    I am not gonna try putting it on the side of the hull that's for sure. It feels strong enough to pull up the vinyl graphic lol! I was playing with it around the house and stuck it on our french door glass and it feel like I could rip the door off if I wanted too :D

    haha no secrets @Rod5 :D

    My King Starboard sheet took forever to ship from Amazon and hopefully arrived today. Weather hasn't been great for boating lately so hopefully I can get out this weekend to test it.

    Cool man! I've been dialing in the new Wake Wedges I just got last month and about finished all my stereo upgrades, but dealing with lots of blown db651 speakers now. Going to try and pick this back up too in the next couple weeks. We'll have some good data and stories to compare in PCB next month! :)

    I am hoping we will still get to go to PCB. My father in law recently got laid off at his job of 40+ years so it may affect when and where we stay if we still get to go. We always chipped in and rented a huge condo for all the families so not sure what it going to happen now. hopefully we are still gonna make it cause my ass is ready for a vacation from work!!

    Awe man what a bummer! So hope things work out for everyone and certainly understand if you're not able to make it. If you end up delaying or going later in the year let me know, we tend to make several summer and fall trips to PCB...
