    WOW what an expensive weekend!

    friday we left for lake Texoma for a family thing and spent 4 days there. water was Very rough for the first 3 days. there were like 3-5ft. waves on the south side of the train bridge( those that have been there probably know what im talking about) the wind was blowing ~ 20 and gusting to ~35. i got the worst sunburn of my life because our sunscreen was expired and it was too late once i realized it wasnt working. the good thing is it will turn to a good tan. overall good riding.

    but it was a pretty expensive weekend

    friday:
    gas up truck-50.00
    gas up skis- 77.00
    food and stuff-80.00
    beer for mom and others:60.00

    saturday:
    gas up truck again- 45.00

    gas up skis again:65.00

    spider web cracked nose of my ski pulling up next to cousins Crownline 230(remember 3-5 foot "seas")

    shorted out trailer lights because forgot to unplug befor diping down:40.00

    sunday: gas up skis again:75.00

    lost retainer(for my teeth) while on water...damn waves again:135.00

    brother failed at losding ski onto trailer. waves pushed him over the fender of the trailer(big black mark on bottom of ski, into the tailpipe of truck scratching gelcoat, and beached it on the ramp.




    mom learned that she cant pull tandem axle trailer(for cousins Crownline) scraped front on her boyfriends truck(the painted plastic part).

    so...(getting calculator.............) 627.00+ repair on trucks and skis.

    looks like we wont be going to the lake for a while

    My weekend was cheap except for $70 in fuel and some sun burn even using #55.. had mid 90's and 30 mph winds.

    Bolted my top loader on, lowered the sponsons and installed some of my old 01 Riva trim tabs.. then killed 2 rxps with a completely stock 05 GPR with the addition of the two items mentioned.. nothing like 3'+ chop and a GPR hull..

    Is it just the rod/piston, or is there much more damage involved? i.e.) crank .....
