Got these out of the local paper a couple of weeks ago.





We can do some toy swapping while you are down.

I'm gonna rig a training pole on to mine this spring to get the rest of our kids wakeboarding. 2 can, 2 not quite. It gets 'em going a lot quicker. My son learnt on one in Greece last summer and was flying after 3 lessons. An old GRP windsurfer mast is good.

Mine is designed to be a high tow point for wakeboarding, waterskiing, etc. - I'm as shocked as you that anyone with a standard a frame is contemplating it - i have visions of cracked and broken grp and bent and twisted stainless.

I paid big extra bucks to have a 2" diameter double a-frame with extremely chunky anchorages direct to deck and transom it has a special T-post at the back in the centre for hooking the line over.

Just look at the pictures to see its considerable beefier than a standard frame used only for lights and antennas.

Your gonna pull a 5yr old, (or 3yr old, or both,) behind you with no "hands-on" adult supervision?

i think i have clearly stated what i will and wont be doing?

i take it you missed a later post saying...

my two that are coming are only 5 and 3 so i dont think they will be waterskiing or wakeboarding this year!!

i also have a near 18 year old that is built like a racing snake, she will be doing some skiing hopefully, but i never mentioned that earlier

I think it is best to keep it all in context dont you? Don't want anyone getting any wrong ideas do we....
