Wow, those are really good shots! I think I'll keep my eyes open for one of those lenses.
I didn't know you could pull something like that with a john boat.

Sounds nice, I used to have a Phantom 16" race boat that I propped down for better acceleration for towing a skier, it still would do just over 60 mph which kept it fun.

I miss having a boat, and I really could have had a nice one with the $20,000 that I've spent on this hobby LOL.

Nice capture on the expression of the faces (especially #3)! I failed at an attempt at water skiing, but enjoyed the tube instead!

We top out at about 37MPH. The boat has a 135HP IO and it is more than enough to pull the tube or water skiers. The boat holds 8 people.

Will, thanks for your comments. The dog is a great pet. she is extremely smart, and absolutely loves riding on Big Mable. She always goes for a swim but seldom stays in the water long. I thought that being part Poodle she would be more of a water dog.
