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"

i guess you didnt have the bucket trimmed enough and some water caught it.

Ouch!! where you going up to a dock and tried to use the reverse to slow down but it failed causing you to hit the dock

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.
