    Thumbs up Great time on the SLT!!!

    Well went out this weekend, the wife had a great time on the SLT 780. I did not have as good of a time on the doo. I did get a chance to GPS it. In stock form with 200 hours on it, I got 50.2 MPH. It did not seem to make much diffrence with two or one riding. Well after I get the General up and running again I will have to do some small mods on it. So she can keep up, but I do not want her to pass me. In the rough water I think she will get me as the SL dose not like the rough water. LOL

    I took mine out for the first time yesterday. Having never ridden one before it took me about 10 minutes to get the feel of it and about 11 minutes to roll it for the first time. What a blast!!!

    Tony, you can trim the sponsons a bit and get a little more speed out of it. And it will handle a little better.

    Oh, I can assure you I'll do some tweaking in the near future.

    The ski handles quite well actually. I just did something stupid...I had 3 people on it (about 450 lbs) It was stable but once I got out of the no wake zone it wouldn't plane so I turned around and headed back. The combo of a sharp turnaround along with two riders that decided to lean into the turn sent us all for a swim. Oh well, at least I learned how to roll it back over.
