    I have a really serious personal issue / confession

    What's it called, OCD?

    I rode my RXP twice today... for the first time in a VERY long time... i mean VERY long time. alot of BS along the way and a bitch to get her going finally, but today she goes finally... and god did she make me proud.

    scared to put it in the water since the last two times it hit the water did NOT go well at all... so i button up all the loose ends yesterday, cover it up and call it a day. today it comes outside, goes on the flush twice in a row for 5-10 minute intervals... i slowly push the dolly towards the davit and lower it in the water and run it against the dock for 20 minutes, turn it off, later let it run another 20 minutes... finally i grow a ball sack and put on my lifevest and have my friend take out a boat to follow me with a tow rope just in case...

    ran excellent, she made me proud finally for the first time this season (lesson learned don't buy a used motor without tearing it down and rebuilding the entire thing)

    get back to the dock to have some lunch and leave the ski in the water because i knew i would ride it again before the day was over, get a little consistency out of her...

    I washed and polished the ski while it was IN the water before the second ride of the day I have issues... after i cleaned it, i took it for another ride for about 45 minutes and come back, take it out of the water and wash it again

    OCD rant complete

    this is what my RXP looked like AFTER it went for a ride in SALT water and after i cleaned it while it was IN the water, LOL...

    first day out, brand new motor, totally different set of mods than i've ever had on the ski in the past... it's very very mild actually (stock SC and stock ECU) ..... didn't pitch anything or dial anything in....15/19 3-blade out of the box pulled 8100 on the dot... talk about a successful day.
