At one point I had a rich stepdad in the 70s. We had a hovercraft that looked like a landspeeder and we tried waterskiing at gages or bangs lake( I forget) It didnt work for crap but mustve looked funny.

Wondering why I laughed abot the 9.9 motor.I have a 9.9 Evinrude with a water ski prop.My Great Uncle Bob took me out on skis for the 1st time in 1977.Not only can certain 9.9 s reach great speed;but, some also posses a gearing with very heavy torque.I've planed most fishing boats up to 18" and most not full out.Please, respect other people's posts for the info they provide.See you in my wake "Wrench".
