Just wanted to give props to my girlfriend. She is awesome to have on the boat. we have been riding together for 2 years now and she is the best teammate ever.

We have it down now that we do not even have to say 1 word when launching/retrieving the boat, or wiping down. (we feel sorry for the couples that seem to get into yelling matches for the stupidest reasons, but we cant help but laugh a little at them too).

She can back a trailer into the narrowest lanes and she can put the boat on the trailer, spot on everytime. she prefers to handle the truck and trailer though.

She gives good, straight, consistent pulls, can pull a dock start, and drive a dub...

she's rad.

You're a lucky man John. Love the hardcore wakeboard couples!

I was doing pretty good with my wife for the first couple of years. She could drive the boat well in the Delta with no speed control system, lanch, dock, etc.... She burned out after a while, but she can still ride and drive. Grateful that she doesn't mind all of the riding that I do.

I have my girlfriend in training as well and she is doing pretty good with backing the trailer now.

My wife and I have the same thing going. I love seeing her back the trailer down next to a guy that is struggling

Hey John....So many times we take for granted the great things our spouses/s.o's do for us. Its great to see you publicly compliment her so are BOTH very lucky.

My wife is money with the trailer. Guys in the boat are always saying "how... she is good". Oh, and don't be her way when she is backing down... 'cause you'll get some lip from her about getting your A$$ out of the way!!!

She has started doing the boat now to. The only thing she does not do is drive the river, and I can't say i blame her after I have hit two logs!

My wife is real good with the trailer and pulls also. Its nice to have someone you can consistently count on.

Socal is right, its so easy to take for granted what our sig. others do. Its great to see you give her complements publicly.

Buy her some bling!

Johnny, you sound like you are one whipped boy! Perhaps for good reason though.

AtTheLake, you are over 40 years of age and posting statements that don't make sense. Just a reminder.

Dude, those skills are like a 2 point swing! Take a "7" add that list and she is immediately a "9"!!!!
