    Yeah I see that! Post some larger pics of your ski, I'd like to check them out. How did that flat black lay out when painting?

    I picked up the handle pole on here from a member, he was selling it for a friend. They pop up every now and then on here. It needed a lot of work to make it look nice, and new bushings from exploreron20s along with shaping and turfing the pad finished it off nicely.

    Firstr ride today! The ski was quicker than I anticipated, top speed was almost too much, but I am sure I will get used to it. The prop seemed to work well, I need a little bit more bottom end grunt, but the carb settings might not be spot on yet.

    A pole limiting strap is in my future... Once I go a feel for the footholds and attempted to sub the ski, I over did it and nose stabbed straight down forcing the handlepole a bit further forward that it wanted to go.

    Once I breathed air (versus sucking in water) again, I winced as I looked at my ski expecting the handle pole and mount to be in the water, luckily some bites into the pole and the nose cover loose was the extend of the damage!

    Pics before the ride.
