Stocking up on toys for the year. We ride mornings and lake is pretty wallified by noon. After that we just float alot. What islands, etc are you guys using and liking? I'm all for some vest diapers but the girls like floaty things.

In all seriousness, we have a Rave 20' trampoline off our dock with an attached blob for launching people (only semi-effective) and it's always a big hit with kids and adults. Adults tend to just sun/lounge out there and the carrying capacity is a little limited but I'd highly recommend though they're expensive. We're on our 4th season with ours with no problems. They're very well built, just make sure you have a good anchoring system. They make a pretty good wind sail at times.....

Check this beast out! Not a bad buy at $172...

jrz1 04-17-2013 5:55 AM

Looks like the normal cheap vinyl they use on pool tubes etc. $172 is great price but I'd question how long it would last.....

chattwake 04-17-2013 6:07 AM

Jim,

How many breaths do you think it would take to blow that bitch up?

jrz1 04-17-2013 6:14 AM

Hah. My 20' round tramp came with a really nice electric pump thank God. The tube is about 3' in diameter maybe, so it's really big. Takes the pump about 15 min to inflate it. If i had to blow it up myself, I'd need to start in November to be ready for spring!

Thinking maybe this one.

wonder if the brunette comes with it. Over/under on the blonde being 18?

chattwake 04-17-2013 7:23 AM

I've learned that, as I get older, girls that are like 18 look like they're 15 to me. Those blonde girls look 15 to me, so I'm going to say they are all about 12 or so. Gross hahaha. The brunette is probably supposed to be their mom, but she look like 20 or so.

funny, this is better than the bun 2013 thread hahahaha

It hurts. I was checking out a puma the other day and realized 1) I'm no longer her prey 2) I was her age and she looked young.

Getting old sucks!!

The Costco "relaxation station" makes it about a summer. As they get older, the material completely rips. Small holes haven't been a problem even with a bunch of monkeys constantly jumping on it.

Costco will refund your money when it rips, but they don't stock them all summer.

Jack Flap hit the nail on the head. The Relaxation Station's and the other Plastic PVC inflatables are awesome if you are very easy with them. But the min a full sized adult gets rambunctious that thing is gonna be junk. I saw at West Marine that SeaDoo makes a line of inflatables that look like they can take a beating. They make a copy of the relaxation station that looks like it will do the trick.
here is a pic of the SeaDoo mega island

i owned 2 of the costco islands- one lasted about three trips out, the las one made it 4 hours! the seams just don't hold up. So know I have the 12' Rave- small enough to take on the boat blows up in about 10 minutes and super durable. We flip it over and sit on the edges too.
