    Just want it as the fun machine for the family to pull tubes on and have just a little bit more for when I want a solo ride myself.....Nothing fancy and yet to work out a budget cause im already doing one and plan to start next summer on it(9 months from now) so throw some numbers at me of quality parts and prices so I can get some estimations on what ill need to set aside for it.

    Cheers
    Matt

    The lake we ride on is th biggest in the state at 5 times the size of Sydney harbour so it has no troubles whippin up 1-1.5mtr white caps at the drop of a hat.
    Have seen it happen real quick.....smooth as one minute......swamping and sinking overloaded quintrex's the next.......And as for offshore yeah thats rough I guess

    In the humor of the moment this is beginning to sound like a dinner date

    well you have a few options then, if it gets rough you will want to swap the intake grate for sure. There are 2 options for the ride plate and intake grate. There is the stock replacement for both or the super stock made by R&d, and there is the Shred master ride plate. If you used the superstock r&d set you have to buy them as a set and use both, if you buy the r&d stock replacement or the shred master you can use either the stock grate or the r&d stock grate. I would also encourage you to purchase aftermarket sponsons but that is really a matter of preference, some people like them in chop others don't, I feel it makes the ski much more predictable. As far as performance you should just do the "filter in the bucket mod". I am not sure if you want to make the ski any louder but you can delete the secondary waterbox by using a u bend which saves weight and makes the ski a bit louder, I picked up 1 or 2 bars on the tach afterwards. If you want to do further you can have the primary waterbox modified by drilling holes in the baffle. Outside of that there is not all that much to do if you aren't looking for a motor build.

    I hope that helps, if you have any questions feel free to ask away.
