Well yesterday was probably my worst day of boating ever! A buddy wanted to take a bunch of kids out to learn how to board so i volunteered my boat and we used his truck to tow it to Orwood. Like an idiot my drain plug gets stored in the door pocket on my truck and being I didn't drive, what did I do I launched with no drain plug! Took me only a few minutes to figure out and pull the boat out of the water. Then I run to the parts store in brentwood to get a plug but being so smart I pulled my center plug out so I could match it up which I did but the center plug is 3/4 inch and the back plug is 1/2 inch. So trip number two to brentwood to get a 1/2 inch plug. We finally get on the water and being ski beach was almost empty we pulled up so the kids could eat there lunch and play in the water. I actually had fun playing with my new NVS speakers and relaxed under the shade of by bimini top thinking the day was finally turning around. We took off and the kids began to try wakeboarding. When one kid managed to stand up and go outside the wake I thought I'm going to show them what real wakeboarding is, at least to the best of my abilities! lol I immediatly hopped up and jumped the wake inside out and cut hard out to the side. I then turned and hit the wake hard and popped probably 6' in the air, probably a personal best for me landing 4 or 5 feet out in the flats as my knee colapsed underneath me. Probably some of the worst pain ever and a loud pop. But being there was 5 kids that hadn't boarded yet I continued pulling the kids tell they all had a ride then drove home with my left foot and went to the hospital. Turns out I have a torn MCL ACL and Miniscus I have to meet an orthopedic surgon on monday! I'll have to post some picks up as soon as I down load them!
