I sent you a pm. I don’t know if you still ride or not, or if you just want to play some pinball let me know. I have a couple of games you were looking at adding to your collection if you want to get more time on them. Most of my games are up at tulloch but I do have four solid titles down here in Dublin.

Thanks, Mike

Lots of boating lately. Wishing the wakeboarding was going better but I guess I am hitting the wall nearing 40.

Yep me too and wish I would have been able to start sooner. My toe side 180 is nice but heel side is still ugly my front roll is coming along nicely. More smooth on landing that is!! Helps a lot if you don't land on the wake on your back

#65 1 year ago

I ride at relatively high level. Latley I have been doing switch scare crows which is pretty awkward.

But I have lost all my advance tricks (inverts with 360-540s)

Below is pic of a big worm. Front roll with 540 over the head. Could do it last year but no dice so far this year.

If you want to get that front roll. Get on the trampoline if you can. Air awareness is so key. When I was hard core I was jumping on the tramp like an hour a day. Also a great work out.

This tramp board is super helpful and will kick your butt as a work out

Here's mine, this is an old pic, haven't even been on it in like 10 years. Life happens. Wish it still looked this nice.

U can still crush it. My wife can do like 8 different inverts and just learned a 360. Just takes dedication.

My 5 year old just got up but I think his brother that is 2 will be the ripper in the family.

I sure hope so. I pushed about as far as I could for starting at 17.

#71 1 year ago

Took my wife and my friend tubing yesterday. Thought this was a pretty good pic.

I grew up in my grandparent's boat shop on the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. When we lived there I had a 16' skiff that we made and miss that boat. I am saving up for a 23' Parker at this time and hope to add pictures within the next few years.

Hello all. New to the thread. I have been boating for 25 plus years and it is a great family time for us. We do a 2 week trip every year in the Great Lakes. Last year we took it up into Canada. WOW. It is beautiful up in the north channel. I will post some pics later of our trip but for now just wanted to say hello.

Bill Hess, Milwaukee, WI is where we boat out of.

You gotta love California. I am taking some time off work in the next couple weeks and we are going to be doing some wake boarding. It is cold but with a dry suit and a nice day there is nothing better than having the lake all to yourself.

On the River Shannon, just north of Carrick-on-Shannon, Ireland.

Must be nice to be able to swim in a lake and not worry about being eaten.

I've always wondered about that in the South. Do people just take their chances? Known good lakes/areas?

#83 11 months ago

Just moved to Annapolis and going through the approvals now to tear down my existing dock, reorient it, rebuild, and dredge so I can get my boat in. Permitting on the Bay is a process but it looks like things are going through without issues. Wish me luck.

#84 11 months ago

Here is my pride and joy, a Formula 31 PC. Bought the boat which kicked off the move out here. If anybody is near Naptown hit me up. Boat season will be here before we know it.

We had a great trip up the the North Channel in Canada this past summer. It is great up there. The water is warm and clean and clear.

Thanks. I was. I love boating as it keeps the family close

That is truly incredible! I would love to take a trip like that. There really is a lot to learn when being a captain of a yacht! When we went looking for the wife's pontoon boat, we went to a boat dealer on the Illinois river in marion, IL. The gentleman we talked to explained the Great loop through America. He said he had done many trips this way. It is amazing to learn about this type of water travel. Maybe one day we will be able to do a boat trip like this. I love the big yachts, they really are amazing!

Two years ago I have went from New York to Milwaukee just like your map shows. It was awesome. My wife and I will be doing the great loop in about 10 years we are hoping. We both love being on the water.

Went to the boat show. Wanted to 210K for new G23. What a joke. Thank god I bought my boat a few years ago. The boat inflation prices make pinball look like a dream.

#93 7 months ago

Been around boats and fishing since before I could walk. They both inspired my love of pinball when I saw my first Fish Tales in 1994.

These fleet as of now...

Is there any boaters here that boat in Lake Michigan? Looks like my boat is going in on April 22nd. Can't wait.

#97 7 months ago

Just waiting on the water level to come up for me. But Saturday the wife is getting her pontoon out. She has been nagging me about it. Oh well guess its a good thing, I will be on the water!
I can't wait to get my first wakeboard run of the year in!!!!!

#98 7 months ago

Picked up my boat yesterday from storage. Still a couple weeks out in riding. But getting closer!
