My sons and their friends ride behind our 12' alum. Valco with an 8hp Nissan! <BR>Deep water starts are a bit of a struggle, but they do 'em all the time. My sons are more in the 150 pound range, 180 might be a bit much for an 8 horse...<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/blush.gif" border=0> <BR>Just gotta know how to work the board until the boat planes out.
