I used to love Cowtown wake park in Fort Worth. It closed I think two years ago. There was some flooding that closed them for a couple of months and they just never re-opened. It was supposed to...

I think trying to get a good wake/surf boat into a smaller package is a good idea. This is shorter than my SN2001 and you can surf it. That alone is pretty impressive. It also uses a Cursader...

You keep talking up that Prostar 190 and they are beautiful, reliable boats. But the Prostar 190 isn't just "more of a dedicated ski boat." It's the best slalom boat on the planet. And it does...

The biggest question is "Can your alternator keep up with the draw?" If not, dual batteries won't help. You can wire the batteries straight parallel but the more common method for marine setups is...

My 1983 Ski Nautique had an original MSRP of about $18,000. Adjusted for inflation, that is about $45,000. For that $45k, you got a short, narrow closed bow 5-seater. No ballast, no stereo, no...

I personally use a $35 USB-powered GPS speedo I got at Amazon. It's not gauge shaped. Instead of replacing a gauge, I just use some 3M Command Strip to attach it to the dash. It's been fantastic...

I took a long break from wakeboarding and came back riding cable a couple of years ago. Last year, I got a boat for the first time in a long time. I'll also jump on the Recoil bandwagon. It's my...

As others have pointed out, it's really ramp and trailer dependent. Both of my bunks just barely have to be completely submerged to get the boat all they way on easily on my current (somewhat...

Lots of people in Florida have dogs. I think gators are not as big an issue as you may suspect. Out of your list, Austin has a hot real estate market and easily the longest riding season. It also...

Dry suit used prices are kind of all over the place. I picked up a Bare back in February for $250 with good seals. O'Neill is cheaper to get seals replaced so you have that going for you. You may...

Cowtown Wakepark in Fort Worth was mine but they closed over a year ago due to flooding. Republic Wakepark opened at the very end of summer in the same spot so I guess they are my home park now but...

My cousin had a Sport from the late 90's that I spent considerable time behind. It puts out a nice wake with about 1600lbs of ballast. He had it arranged at the sides of the engine and in the bow,...
