Had a great time out tubing & wake boarding today. The water is still a little "brisk", but its getting there. The nice thing is the lake is 3'+ above chart datum, so lots of areas to do fun stuff like this.

BTW this is with 3 more adults on board, 3/4 tank of gas, and all the accompanying supplies. My little 350MAG/B3 continues to surprise me. Plenty of power for all watersports. It'll hold plane as low as 15mph with the tabs and trim all the way down, so I can even take it nice & easy on the kids.

I'm on the left getting some nice air. My gf moved the camera down towards the end, but I ended up submarining backward when the boat slowed down. LOL



My buddy got up on the wakeboard, no dice for me. :neutral:

    Yeah St. Clair is probably low 70's in the shallow areas right now, maybe high 60's near the channels. But, as long as the sun is shining and it's 75*+ its bearable. Once you're in it isnt bad at all.

    Most of it was a self-imposed as we do circles to get a nice amount of rolling waves together. Makes for some funny spills & flips. There was a bunch of boats on the lake yesterday though, being father's day and one of the few rain-free weekend days so far up here.

    We wakeboarded behind Earl Faust's 342. That throws off a heck of a wake.
