What a day...
Well, a girl I know wanted to go out for a ride with me once before I head back to school tomorrow, so we went up to the river. About ten miles away from the launch I hear a pop as we crossed a wake at ~30mph and the right side of the ski kicked up, I look down and see the front of my right sponson starin me in the face. We ride the half mile to the other side of the river where a beach is and I check it out, at least 6 inches of water in the hull! The sponson had ripped out the three front brackets and broke the fourth rear bolt. Well, there is no road access to this part of the river so we hopped back on (pretty tricky with that much water in there) and had to ride back the whole way at about 25mph. Oh yeah, this was about 30 min into the ride . Barely made it back to the ramp. At least this was gonna be the last ride of the season . Now just to see if I can get this covered by the warranty .
