My dad hooked his Phantom 21 at Strathclyde Park (all regions race) back in early 90's, i remember one minute looking at Russell Cox (our skier back then), the next i had left the seat and my back hit the ski pole! did hurt!

At least you stayed in the boat m8, I was observing in my dad's Ring 21 (twin rig) when it hooked on Loch Earn in 1995, all i remember was trying to grab the observers handle, then seeing the name on the side of the boat upside down

well i wanted a 115 but they are no longer avaliable, and a 125 is the same motor with a few more horses so i thought what the hell.

i didnt want a 90opti as its a bit heavier than my existing 90 so i thought whats the point
