Hello everyone! Looking to see if any other PWC fans/riders in the area would be interested in putting together some sort of local club/group to ride,chat,host PWC related functions,share ideas,tech stuff,etc.

Check the Hudson River Ride (Albany Area) thread. There are several of us but we haven't put anything together yet. Mcrowley and myself are planning on going to the river this weekend as of now. I don't mind if people join, he probably doesn't either. There are only a couple weeks left to ride. I really need a wetsuit!

Where do you guys launch? I used to launch at the Corning Preserve, but I found the rowers to be quite obnoxious, they think they own the place . I now Launch from Rensselaer. I thought it would be a good idea to try & find others locally who were into PWC as much as myself. If it helps, I have a shop right near the river,& dont mind lending a hand ( or wrench) to someone who might need it.Looking forward to making next season the best yet.

We launch at the ramp in Glenmont, NY (Henry Hudson Park). It's about a 5-10 minute ride on the water to the alive at 5 and places near that. Mcrowley knows more. Like I said, I'm riding this weekend, I think he is too and you're welcome to join. What ski do you have and any mods?

I am up for a ride whenever--although this weekend I will be in PA for family party
but I will ride anytime after work during week--I launch usually near Port of Albany if riding Hudson or Lock 7 if riding Mohawk
always looking for people to ride with--and I have a wetsuit, so my season is longer--as long as it can get!!!

Saturday. Don't know what time yet, probably around 11am-1pm is when I'll launch. Bring your fastest ski and a bunch of money to lose when we bet on races (j/k)
