This was taken at the Delta this weekend in the Vics just after lunch. Water was sick, no other boats around, just feeling good so I tried a new trick. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> No laughs please. Can't wait to try another. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakepics.com/view_single.php?medid=11815" target="_blank">http://www.wakepics.com/view_single.php?medid=11815</a>

nice, got all the way around...hold on to that handle now with both hands...keep it tight into the waist, maybe even pull in on it a little bit to allow you a little slack for the landing. You'll be landing them in no time. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by snoobs on September 07, 2004)

Shinubi ~ thanks. the roll happens so fast that you forget to do a few things. I will keep your advice in mind.

ant bug, good stuff man. if you don't mind, here are some tips. <BR> <BR>cut was good...needs to be more progressive. <BR>stand tall. <BR>don't look back...look UP and back. <BR>keep both hands on the handle, at the lead hip. <BR> <BR>wasn't the delta awesome this weekend? where were you guys? we were FAR from victoria slough. more importantly, when are you taking me up to the delta w/ you?!?!?!

Eric ~ thanks. <BR> <BR>Joe ~ yes please give me pointers. As you can see I need them. <BR> <BR>The Delta just keeps on surprising me in how nice it is. I need to move up there so I can really improve my riding. <BR> <BR>I have a few things planned these next couple of weekends, but after I want to hit up every weekend. Hopefully my Captain isn't busy and I can try another roll. <BR> <BR>I'm sure you and your lady are welcome. I will just have to check with Ed.

thats pretty good for a first try!!... Although it looks like an OLE 360 which is pretty cool!!! Take a faster cut in and look up and over you front shoulder NOT down and you will get it in NO TIME!!! <BR>Good work! <BR>

Anthony, Drop Me a line next time Your heading up.

big_ed_x2 09-07-2004 8:13 PM

well,my bilge pumps weren't working for like a month but I wasn't too worried about it cuz my boat doesn't take on water at all almost and it was due for a 100 hr check-up the week before but my dealer couldn't take me in and said it would be fine since I do a regular tune-up etc.but anyway it started taking on water by gallons on my sunset run.water was hot and i was kind of panicing.By the time I realize that the water was hot and for me to turn the engine off cuz it will stop taking on water,man I took in water till my back lockers had about 1/2 a inch of water.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/angry.gif" border=0>
