    Wasn't mine, some guy traveling through. The ski didn't look like it was taken care of to begin with.

    Oh, OK. I'm guessing he wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed


    Shaving 1/2" of fiberglass off the bottom has to be worth .5 MPH,
    He was doing it as a speed mod

    I didn't think that was a legal way to tow.

    It is legal here. Could've got him for unsecured load, but I let him make it. He strapped it down with at least 4 ratchet straps before he left.

    I've never seen anyone try to tow a ski behind a boat like that;
    he's lucky it didn't kill somebody.
