    Sucking up garbage......

    Sometimes you can't help but laugh......

    This is why I have a dedicated tool box for jet skiing that stays in my truck or at my dock. Yesterday, I woke up, checked Lakevision and saw there was a small craft advisory kicking up. Once the rain cleared we headed to the ramp, the 5ft waves were rolling nice, about 8ft apart...I thought to myself that it looked too perfect out there.


    Then, I was out on the water for about 5 minutes and my ski got hungry and ate some junk.

    Luckily it didn't ruff it up much. Surprisingly, it passed through the impeller, didn't harm the wear ring and got stuck in the turning vanes. It's a black plastic potter for a shrub or plant. Gotta love litter bugs. I wish they'd all die.

    Ugh, that sucks! Gotta love people who can't simply put their garbage where it belongs. Sort of like the people who are too lazy to push their shopping cart to the cart corrals and as a result the wind catches them and they slam into the side of someones car. Man does that drive me nuts.

    I think I'm going to give a 13/19 impeller a shot. A member here is selling one. Kind of hesitant because I wanted to do that the same time I put a shaved head on but what the heck. It's not that much work to change back if I don't like it. I'm not looking for top speed, just whole shot.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?
