    Unfortunately I'll be preparing the 205 for Tuesday.

    Otherwise I would have been there with bells on.

    I'm not a skier, but love just sitting in the boat and hooning along. And having a few beers and chinwag.

    Maybe next time if there is one.

    Can't make it Dave, as I have a triathlon on that morning, and heading up to the mountains after that...I think.

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies - i haven't given all that much notice this time round. But next time I will organise it a lot earlier!

    No worries guys - it's all good! Lincoln - good luck with that Triathalon. Darren, i hope the car's coming along well! I'll be there on Tuesday for sure! Ben, hope you don't lose your count on the votes buddy..! (Just watch as Liberals fall big time!!)

    However - for anyone else who hasn't replied, and can possibly make it for the Ski day - you're still more than welcome! Just let me know if you're coming or not....i'm going to be there with friends, either way!

    I probably could have come but I've had a cold an the triathlon didn't help. We keep 9th, 3rd down on last year's performance and a slightly worse time. Was a much tougher day, some wind and the pace was cracking at times.

    so how did it go?

    Hi all,

    Well we didn't end up skiing, cos we had engine troubles with the boat (it has 19 hours on it )

    It seemed to Pug309 and I that the choke got stuck on, but it was all electronic and we couldn't figure it out!

    I'll post some pictures later anyway, and Dave said we'll try again soon so hopefully more of you guys can come!

    Derek.

    Hello Guys,

    Thanks to Derek, Daniel, Adrian & the USA gals' Leah, Kristen & Julie for coming along!

    It was good to meet/see you all, and I appreciate your patience thru the mechanical failures of the boat! She (the Boat) usually purrs quite nicely, and jumps straight out of the water.

    Obviously something has done some damage to it & we'll need to have it rectified (which is why it's being put into service tomorrow morning)!

    So i would like to say that I would like to try to have this day go ahead again, soon! I am aiming for the next AussieFrogs-Power-ski day to happen on either the 12th or 13th of April (as that is my next weekend off work). So for all those who are interested. please let me know & we can choose a date suitable for all!

    Thanks...cya!

    You would be surprised how badly a lot of people count! I was basically on mop up duties because the others were so incompetant their numbers were all out! Everytime i counted i got the right figures!

    Anyway, yes the liberals did flop big time! The disturbing thing i noticed in the electorate i was in was the hanson vote! However i did notice that A LOT of people who voted for voted informal because they couldn't read the instructions deal roll_lau

    Hope the ski/drive day was good for everyone! Wish i could have come!

    I was being more subtle than that wink

    I am going to Michagan Uni in July, to Ann Arbor as my Aunt and Uncle work there. There's a big art festival or something on then. It's worth seeing.

    Deks, you gotta use that above info, you'll look very smart wink :p

    Hey guys, my father dropped the boat in to be repaired/serviced this morning & the dealer has told us that the Engine Cooling system isn't working. He also said that if we ran it for any more than 5 mins it would have fried the system. The good news after this evaluation is that it will be fixed under warranty! (thank god!) Otherwise it could be expensive!

    Well Sunday 13th is fine for me too John...so i'll start a new Thread for the next Aussiefrogs-Power Ski day & see who we can line up for a great day out, with a boat that actually wants to work!!

    Talk soon! I'm off to Melbourne on Wednesday! So if you don't hear from me, thats why!!!

    Hi Dave,

    Good to hear it'll all be fixed!

    I *wonder* why there was water coming out the tell-tale then? I'll be interested to see what happens next time the boat is out

    My diagnosis was way out obviously :p Still, not good that the engine's had a major failure with 19 hours on the clock

    The 13th is alright with me too.. either the 12th or the 13th, just as long as I have a bit of notice to swap work if necessary.

    Have a good time in Melb!
    Derek.
