    I dropped my ski off the trailer!

    Yesirr..that makes 2 for 2 on this trailer droppping skis. I was doing about 45 mph down a 4 lane street in town and the winch cord broke..the ski flew tail down off the ski and skidded for 78 feet down the street. freaked me out beyod belief.

    Damage to the hull was minor, believe it or not. It basically sanded down the 2 chines and did'nt touch the others. But...it trashed an R&D rideplate, the nozzle trim ring, the plastic nozzle, the left RIVA sponson looks nice and scarred. The pump shoe has a nice grinding scar nothing extreme but evidently, metal does'nt slide very well on asphalt. The intake grate has a nice asphalt grind on it, about 1 inch long, not bad considering the length this bad boy traveled.

    The feeling of watching your ski sliding behind you is breath taking. literally.

    Bummer....

    FWIW - I use a back safety strap in addition to the winch and rear straps. Might be worth a try. 3 strikes and you might be out!

    The second application of Fiber bond is drying as we speak..it was'nt as bad as I thought it was, it just freaked me out beyond words to see that ski skidding behind me. Unreal. A car almost hit her, he had to slam on breaks to keep from hitting Lightnin'.

    Total of about $500 of damage and parts when all is said and done.

    Pistonwash,
    Isn't that the hard way to sand the bottom of your ski to take a little weight off of it? :P You are supposed to keep these secrets to yourself.
