Nice! When do we get some pics on the water? Too bad it was so damn windy this weekend! Didn't get the 'bu in until Sunday and that was just to run it back from the launch to get it on the hoist.

You need a canopy for that thing.

Canopy is being ordered this week. I will get some action pics next time I am up. We put 2.5 hours on it over the weekend to try to get the break period over. I can tell you that this thing is amazing. It is so responsive, I have never driven anything like this. The exhaust sounds awesome. I can't wait to get behind it.

I forget. Did you get the Monsoon or the LCR? I rode in one of those with the Monsoon 2 weekends ago and skied behind it. It's amazing how smooth that engine is with the cats on it.

Monsoon. The engine is so smooth, I just gotta figure out all the gadgets now! It is going to take a little getting used to. When in reverse, it gets tough to steer. It seems that no matter which way the rudder is turned, it just goes straight back lol. No complaints about the boat what so ever. At 26-27mph the wake seems to disappear. Throw the wedge down and then we have a monster wake. It should be a awesome all around boat.

Yes, you can't steer in reverse other than to the starboard side. To dock, come in at about a 30-45 degree angle slowly on your right. Once you're close, hit the reverse and the back end will suck right up parallel to the dock. These boats really don't maneuver well at slower speeds. I always recommend tying a buoy to an anchor out in the middle of the lake and practice slow speed maneuvers around that.
