    Nah, just attempted to check out the Cleveland air show on the SL.

    Me and her on the SL, white caps, and the most boat traffic Cleveland sees at any one time = bad day.

    First, we had a late start. Traffic was very heavy getting to the ramps.

    No authority AT ALL to organize things, so it was a free for all at the ramps.

    No where to park. A bunch of cars were parked in the truck/trailer spots. (you know, like a Camry not even filling up half the spot)

    I ended up parking about 1/4 mi away after unloading.

    So we get out, and I can't even go fast. Or we'll be bouncing all over the place (white caps)

    The beach is far from the air show, so I can't even drop her off and watch.

    Boats anchored everywhere watching the show, so I can't even ride fast inside the break wall.

    Total bust, so I get pi$$ed and we head out after 45 mins.

    Took me 25 mins to get back to the truck, turn around, and get back to the ramps.

    It was a fiasco!

    If I had a SLT, I'm sure it woulda been a little more tolerable.

    But, 2 up on a SL in congested, choppy water. Not happening.....

    The SLT is a leap ahead of the SL for 2, But that was why I really wanted the MSX,something that is a couch for the rough water. I thought maybe you split a hull.

    I read a sign somewhere that said you can't kill stupid people? Why not? That's right up there with iresposible parents letting their children play on the boat ramp and dock that clear says not a swimming area.

    Yeah I own both and know exactly where your coming from. I had a buddy of mine on the back of the sl and we only went a little ways to another boat and it was tipsy we fell off getting on, planed kinda slow. didmt go all that fast. I have to trim the thing constantly to get it to ride correctly. I get soaked on the sl. dont get me wrong, it's fun to ride it.
    The slt is like a cadillac. smooth ride Deep-V hull, Fiberglass not smc,.never get wet.engine bay acess is good, mfd location is better, bigger gas tank,more storage room, spin saround easy, rear mirrors, reverse. holds 2 people easily. still goes 50 with 2 people on it.maybe 48-49. you can lay down on it by yourself. has a tow ring .planes easy.
    I just likeeverything about it. nice ski to own. till i seen the 785 pro. doh!

    I took a look at a members 97 SLTX yesterday that he picked up for a song. The engine was a basket case, but everything else is in great shape.

    Really makes me want a 3 seater for Her Ride. I like to tube/knee board and that one I can do it off of.

    Pretty sure I'll be getting a hull in the near future, and make that her's.

    Thinking of doing the Sea Lion/Tech SLX engine combo to it if I do.

    780, 44's, PRO CDI, dry pipe, and 12/17 impeller. Should pull real nice, as long as it doesn't ping from too much advance for the weight.
