That's got to be in Australia... That's a very Australian thing to do.

Look closely and you can see the skiers.

Where is the "No, Thank You" button?

(Note the lack of "Thank You"s on VinTin's post!)

I found a solution to your having trouble skiing behind your rig.... wakeboard! Or in our case "wakeless board"!

The next time you take it to the lake take a straight edge with you and check it under water, just put the straight edge up against the bottom on the keel and see if the straight edge will rock or if you can feel a gap under the center of the straight edge. It should be dead flat for about 3 to 4 foot at the rear.
