Hey, he's got pretty good form too BB!

Nice job. I can almost feel that proud dad smile from Erie!

This weekend his first trip out of the wake. His older brother was with us and he showed him how to cut hard on his knee board. It was a good weekend.

Great strides. Nothing like inspiration from his brother.

That arch has really gotta help too BB. Can't wait to get out there with ours. Did not have that feature on our 262 and was adamant to have that on our next boat. :D

Max likes it.he thinks it makes it easier to get up. My oldest wasn't happy he thought he would get more air and pop. I think the dual prop and the hull tamed the wake a bit for him. I had to get a tower. I always wanted one. I have to lower it every time I come home. To be honest it sucks. I will never get one that doesn't have a assist or power. It's a heavy beast.

Curious why you have to lower it BB?
I'm guessing garage storage?

Yep 8 foot garage door height. It's a pain. It kind of takes the fun out of it to be honest.. I tie it to my ceiling so I can work on stuff in the bow so I can walk under it.

Wow.
You got that in there pretty snugly, BigBlock. Nice job on your measurements---especially clearing the garage door opener with the tower fold down.

Knock out a wall and your 28zxo will slide right next to her!
