    Things that irritate you about our hobby

    Guys I'll probably regret starting this thread because it will turn nasty/personal for some people but i just wanted to tell you all what irritates me...
    When someone post a speed and says xx.x but there's a lot left in it... Makes it sound like they could get 3 more MPH that day but didn't want to mess with it.... Just post speeds we all know there is more tuning and more speed in every ski on this forum so please just post the speed!!!

    It really is overused in selling a ski. "I'm running 78.2, but there is a lot left in it!...

    What annoys me about our sport:

    - morons at the ramp who take more than 5 minutes to launch/load a boat
    - increasing gas prices
    - losing speed and not knowing why
    - moronic jetskiers who come too close wanting to drag race.
    - rainy weekends

    Number one: retards on rented ski's that run into you at speed damn near decapitating your brother.

    Jackasses in their 50' + yachts cruising the intracoastal (especially with the radar on)

    No wake zone violators (especially those jackasses in the 50' yachts that the marine patrol will never pull aside)

    Well that doesn't irritate me at all because I fall in that catogory. My ski runs a certain speed and I know with all that there is on it it can run alot faster but I am tired of messing with it.

    While just cruising at 25-30MPH, Some Ass bag i dont know looking to race, comes from behind as he blows by me at WOT, then looks back after 50ft thinking he won, and drives away w/o saying anything.

    That's typically referred to as a ricer fly by on the street. Annoying isn't it?
