    What's Wrong With These Pictures?

    Good waves out there today. Maybe too good... We were jumping some nice ones when I banged the ski off the bottom, and we were in about 8 feet of water. I was told the jump was spectacular (I didn't see it, I was cowering behind the handlebars wondering when I would land again), but I only got a 4.0 on the landing from the Russian judge.

    I have a spare steering nozzle and a 5 degree exit nozzle, but does anybody have a spare 3 degree exit nozzle? Or a spare steering cable? Or maybe even a spare trim ring? I promise I won't jump ever again.

    Ahhhh, who am I kidding? I'm probably out there jumping waves while you're reading this...

    Ha ha ! Priceless indeed. Talk to me when you have to leg drag to steer back to shore because the nozzle is no longer attached to the boat!

    Wave jumping is very addictive.

    Joe also has an extra trim ring to go with that nozzle.

    How Much?

    Joe,
    How much for the trim ring? I bought a nice billet one to replace the last one I broke, but it doesn't have the arm for the trim! I guess it was made for a drop nozzle...

    Duke,
    I rode the ski back like that and docked it. It would go straight with full left lock, but if you gave it gas it would still drift right. I drove it across 3 miles of open bay with 2 foot waves while using my feet to steer. Not pleasant, but still better than towing.

    parts is parts...

    did that really happen from jumping?

    I did not realize that could all be a product of jumping.

    please give me a quick lesson on just why it happened...because he landed wrong? or too high...

    or are these parts just exposed on a landing?
