    Check Your Throttle Cables !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My Triple Pipe stuck WIDE OPEN last weekend !!!!! Yes,it made the blood pump a little faster than normal.I was headed right for the shallow end of a cove(no more water) pulling over 78mph when it stuck.I was real lucky that the Novi's had enough spring to pull the butterfly's closed.Here is a pic.Might want to inspect your cables as a routine maintinance.

    Im not sure what salt water might do to the cables,i would think they could get corroded easier.

His ski is totaled along with another ski that was on a floating dock that he hit and went airbourne about 30-40ft and 15-20ft in the air. Makes me prepar every time I stabb it....Stuff can happen so fast I think everyone should think about what they would do in a situation just to be prepared to act fast!
