    Reverse Bucket Failure

    This is what could happen if your reverse bucket fails.
    Put a hole straight through the side of the ski.
    I would let ya'll call me Geo 2, but I would be afraid that PBJ would then want to call me out while eating a steak sandwich. I can hear it now.. "I want Geo 2"

    Ding ding ding.
    Both of you are correct.

    This is not likely to happen on a stock machine (stock pump setup).

    There just happened to be a metal rod sticking out of the end of the dock where another set of metal docks would connect. I would've taken a picture, but I was too pissed for pictures at the ramp.

    Geez!!! That's tough!! You and BigBuck12345, you guys get in trouble using that reverse going too fast!! My wife ran my ski up on the bank on the rocks cause she could not find reverse fast enough but I've never busted it yet.

    I feel your pain !!

    Looks to me like you just need bigger numbers.
