Dave mine doesn't get winterized and the Marsh is still 60-61. I am also thinking of heading to the heated pond to ride this winter yet.

Ewing, you're the one everyone will call when that 75 degree December day comes around. :-)

Zuka, how's the arm and hammer(I mean shoulder) doing? Hope you're mending ok. If you feel like a road trip to NYC December 13th for the boat show in December, give me a shout.

holy hell is it cold outside. winter riding is officially here. If anyone here likes cold water as much as I do, I am going out this weekend either friday, saturday, or sunday. Maybe both friday and sunday. Let me know if you want to join. Also, If anyone has any experience with running a wake boat during the cold season could you shoot me an email? I have some questions about draining my heat exchanger after each use and keeping my boat safe while also riding when it is cold out

Out of control Joe. Water is gettin cold, I was out last week with Jim and Ken no wet suit for me lol. I finally took my fins off like you have been sayin. Much nicer, landed 180's much easier. Cant wait for the warm water to come back. If you need a driver text me I dont know about gettin in without a suit though.

yea I wouldnt recommend anyone getting in without a suit anymore, and a good one at that. Water at the philadelphia bouy is 51 degrees, but that has ocean water coming up with the tide. Up by bordentown will probably be below 50 by the weekend

I give you props for the cold water riding, but i think you may be nutz. Anyway have fun with the winter riding, i am sure I will meet you in the spring.

Things are going well, actually great because it is pretty much full on summer now.

Alex- it took me about three days to get the boat show thing, but i got it now.

Looking for a driver to deliver a car to North Carolina if possible from Burlington, NJ. Figured it would be worth a shot if anyone was headed south for any reason. I'm in Winston-Salem, NC but could meet you anywhere in the surrounding area. Flight times doesn't make it feasible for me to pick it up. Hit me up if you know of anyone. Definitely be some beer, pulls and cash involved. Thanks.

When are you looking for someone? I'm most likely going to be laid off any day now, so I'll have lots of free time and a need for $$

Probably next week some time if I win the bid. It's an eBay auction.

A road trip to North Carolina? Sounds like a cool adventure. I'd do it just for the pulls, beers and
the fun of it if I had the free time. Isn't John Keenan from NC? He might be interested in giving this a whirl.

just looked on google maps and its about 500 miles each way. If you want to work something out I am definately up for the trip. I have a spotless driving record (no crashes no tickets that led to convictions) and nothing better to do. if you pay me and a friend 10 bucks an hour to each drive a car down and then drive car A back, I will absolutely do this. way cheaper than paying to have it shipped or have a professional do it. if you could pay to fly/train me home too that would also work. either way. hit me up if you need. 609 937 9801

It's Saturday 11/08/08, The Super Air is getting Winterized down at 60 Sylvia, and I'm in north Jersey at
work until 4:00pm. I don't know how your Saturday is going, but mine is d-r-a-g-g-i-n-g.

Well Randy? Did you win the ebay auction?
Old    Randy (dudeman)      Join Date: Mar 2005       11-08-2008, 3:01 PM Reply   

Nope. Didn't win. You can win any auction if you want to pay more than something is worth. eBay is a funny animal. Peeps get crazy and out of control on bidding. It's an ego thing to win. You win, but really loose. There's plenty of other 2001 GLX's out there. Hate that you have to winterize your boat. Move down here, semi-heated lake, ride all year. Actually, my season has just started since most of the wally's have called it quits.

went down to the river yesterday with my dad and took a quick set before it got dark. holy balls is it cold, had the place to myself though. I head to florida on friday the 21st and dont get back until december first so my rig might be going under wraps in the next week or so. I might drain some fluids before I go and if we get a warm spell once I am back (on december 1st) try to squeeze one or two more sets in

Pretty hardcore Joe F. I like it.
And I totally hope you get out in December. That'd be really cool.
If things go as planned, my boat will be totally buttoned-up for the Winter by the end of this weekend.

Your clarity of thought regarding ebay auctions is good to see Randy.

"I will have a think if I have a scissor jack" ????
Wait, wait, wait...
Am I detecting new phrasing patterns in Doug's writing? What do you think Doug going to come home
with an Australian accent?

This is a scissor jack Doug.

I have a pretty heavy duty scissor jack that I've kept in the van in case the boat trailer gets a flat. But it
has a bearing that I think is shot, making the jack pretty much unusable. Either I could fart around trying
to replace the specialty bearing or I could just look for a new jack and heave the old one. Unless some one knows
of a good source for specialty bearings. Anyone?

I've seen that lake before several years ago, never thought they allowed powerboats but I guess that's changed.

Settled in for the Winter? Not quite yet.
Last weekend's Atlantic City holiday eclipsed giving The Super Air its final Wintertime touches.
But by the end of this weekend The Super Air should be washed, waxed, vacuumed and in its Winter cocoon.

That's it next year I'm telling Dave we need to meet in front of the Correct Craft booth . So far it's a good year I winterized the XStar last weekend and we'll be up at Killington this weekend. I hope it's the same way in the spring going back to wakeboarding. See ya at the Boat show and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

I went down to finish winterizing the x2 today. it was snowing like crazy for a while and before undertook the process of draining the heat exchanger we decided to drop the boat in one more time and I took a quick set through the snow. I wore a glued 5/4 with a 4 mm hood and some gloves and actually felt pretty good. The boat has been completely drained and is officially away for the season. I wanted to try to push it further but this cold snap was just too intense and the last thing I need to be paying for is a new engine....

Hey Alex and JB.... not to rub in our weather.... I got back from 5 days at Pearsonville, 80 to 85 degree air.... water chilled down to 67 degrees, cervesa was around 32 degrees. No wetsuits! Rode my new Ronix 140 VIVA with the Parks Relic bindings - unreal.
Happy Thanksgiving from Huntington Beach. I have a question... what is winterizing a boat mean? Ha Ha.

85° weather and 67° water? Oh man. We won't see that pairing here again for at least another seven months.
Sounds like another great time at Pearsonville Joe. Am I envious? Hell yeah!

I was hoping to get to Wall Stadium this weekend to see what could very well be the last Turkey Derby, but
it doesn't look like I'm going to make it.

Well, I spoke to Craig today, and the SOS Christmas party is shaping-up nicely. Instead of just one band
this year, there's probably going to be two! There's going to be a Red Bull bar and maybe even some
Red Bull girls. Coors will be on tap and there will be plenty of hot and cold food. Craig's also planning to
have a couple of 2009 Centurians on display for us boat type people to look-over. Oh's going to be
another big Christmas party night in Point Pleasant!

A bunch of us will be at the NYC boat show saturday Dec 20th if you can make it, around 12:30 at the MC booth.

If you're still in NJ come spring, your welcome to a few pulls up in Bordentown.

What’s up Dustin!

You’ve found the right spot for wakeboarding in NJ. As soon as spring hits there are plenty of boats in the water.

Right now we’re pretty much hunkered down for the winter with the snowboarding season just around the corner.

And don’t forget about the SOS Christmas party on the 13th.

Alex, I sent you an email requesting some info.

Eustace, I think I will be here during the spring. It would be cool to catch a pull from someone.

Dave, The New York Boat Show sounds good. I have never been to NY but people keep telling me not to miss out on going. Plus MasterCraft is one of my (WakeFactory) big sponsors so i would really like to come check out the show.

Hope everyone has a safe Holiday Season.

Hi guys!! Wow...I have missed sooooo much. I haven't checked in since the summer. Work and wedding planning have been keeping Justin and I really busy.

I must say thanks to you all who posted about my new tricks and the comp. You guys are all such an awesome group of friends. Always giving tips and support. I am very excited about next season, considering my final run of the year was the first and only time I landed my new stuff.

Well done on the late season runs. brrr...I know from experience...30 something degree water, January riding sounds familiar. Ahh, yes. Now the big question is, who is going to be first in '09? I think that may just be a challenge boys and girls lol

Can't wait for SOS!! It actually falls on my birthday this year. What a great way to spend it...can't wait for the fun ride there in the mystery machine after some yummy tequila shots and cigars...and then, of course, there's always our crazy after party...yay!! Good times!!

Welcome Dustin! We have a great crew in Jersey, and we look forward to meeting you at SOS!

Doug, we miss you like crazy!! Can't wait to see you. Nice to have you checking in!

It's been over 2 months since I posted last...I'm weak as far as keeping up the stoke. Sorry people.

The boat is tucked away, winterized back in Oct. That sucked, but it has to be done.

I hope everyones Thanksgiving was pleasant. Mine was great and filling, no pun intended.

I recently became an uncle, it's pretty exciting.

For those that didn't get the newsletter a few weeks ago, the Blog on the site had its 1-yr Birfday on Nov 14. It was a proud day and that aspect of the site has really kept a lot of people up to date as to what is happening and the buzz from crew to crew. Of course there are shenanigans that ensue and it's encouraged that you post and post often! And in these months of down-time, nothing is restricted (not that it ever was) but please remember to keep it clean.

The SOS Holiday party is this weekend, looking forward to it!

See you all soon,

The weather forecast for this Saturday is clear, but it's only going to be in the 30s during the day and the
20s at night! If you're planning to do any outdoor cigar smoking at this year's SOS Christmas party,
you better be wearing your Christmas woolies!

What does everyone think? Does Jeff Z from up in the north country know how to deal with the Winter cold?

Alright everyone...see you Saturday in Point Pleasant...and don't forget your Christmas party hats!

We've got the declaration from the Prez...
8.3 milion is the threshold. I think we've got that much damage in Worcester County alone.
70,166 households still without power (whole towns)since Friday.

Sorry I missed the party, I was supposed to show up unannounced. Worked all weekend and continue too. Hope you all had a great time. Talk soon!

Boat show? Yes! A handful of us will definitely be hitting the boat show. And while we're in NYC we'll probably
bounce around and go check-out the Rockefeller Center tree, maybe take a stroll around my ol' alma mater
Columbia U, and definitely go downtown for a meal in Chinatown followed by some dessert in Little Italy.

You know Jeff Z, at Wakefest's 2008's after-party at Chickie's & Pete's, you, Sara and I sat at the bar
for quite a while drinking pints of Guiness and shooting the shiz. Sara was well spoken, personsble,
funny, and it was easy to see that she has nothin' but love for you, ya' nut ya'. Congratulations
brother. Sara's a great girl and I'm sure you've made her really happy and proud. Well done.

Snowboarding? Nope. Not me. But Connor and I had the ol' Snow Thrasher out the other night! For what it is,
it's a lot of fun! I'll be sure to bring it to the Winter gatherings just in case there's snow on the ground.
