Well... the T4 was a new addition to my life this year but for a fair while now, watersports have been the thing that takes up all my time!

This is "Manya Mafuta" - translation "Faster Fatty", and it's what we spend most weekends doing in the summer months... perhaps going to see if we can get a weekend of T4-ers down for a camp/bbq/ski in the summer T:

5.7L V8 - 280bhp and one BIG wake :D





Also have done the sailing, jet skiing & kayaking thing too!

Anyone else into the wetter side of life?

Done a bit of wake boarding at thopepark cable tow, never behind a boat. Looks good.
Was trying to improve my board skills for the kiteboarding, loved it to bits. Not done it for a while. :(

Under, on, or over, we're all watersports users, so could I direct your attention to these:-

http://www.torbay-bsac.co.uk/A-flag posters.htm

I'm sure all the boat/water users on here are extremely responsible, but there does seem to be a fair number of people who don't know what these flags and buoys mean when they see them.

And it's pretty frightening when you're down below a buoy and someone up top starts using it as a slalom marker.

We've printed a few copies off, laminated them and display them in the nearside rear windows of cars etc.

Thanks all.

Yeah unfortunately they stopped Jetskiing about 2years ago - their pay-per-ride watersports lake picked up and is now running 7 days a week so there's no space for Jet Skis and the insurance is too high....

Here's ma boat:

2.5 Volvo Penta inboard, currently sat in the garden at the house on Skye where it's been since I bought her. The plan is to bring it to Porthmadog early next year and use it. The wife has a Seadoo 3 seater 0>60 in 3 secs anyone??
Well up for a meet!
