Thanks! I wish I had more video. Have you seen the wave jumping movie with the Zodiac Futura? I'll dig it up and post it.

Great stuff Rogan! Something I find helps with ice-launches is to start the engine as soon as you get the lower unit in the water, and toss the engine into gear while the boat is still on the trailer. The prop-wash can be directed to bust up the ice around the launch area which makes it a bit easier on the tubes and trailer when you're launching...

I will definitely have to look you up when I am in Chicago next!

Looks like you are having a lot of fun with your boat Rogan, reminds me of my "hell ride" days... enjoy!

Air? Any more altitude and you'd need to contact air traffic control at O'Hare for clearance to land. YeeeeHawwww.

I've launched my Searider a couple of times solo but I think me needs more than my alloy anchor in the bow section cause the takeoff attitude was more like the space shuttle . It may have had a little bit to do with the verticality of the wave but you look like you've got it all going on!!!

I assume the kill cord is gripped firmly in your teeth...

You'd be shocked at how much air you get. In these photo we knew we were getting air borne but not until we looked at the pics did we realize how much.
