    Default Any of you guys nutty enough?

    To put your boats in the water in a couple weeks? I'm thinking of firing up Bait and dropping it in a slushy pond for a quick minute. Any other takers?

    I have rode my jet skis a few times while ice was still on our lake.
    Had a couple bad experiences...
    If all goes well, it is a neat story to tell.
    Like sliding up across the ice and chasing a muskrat back into the water.
    But...
    one year had an exhaust come undone and filled the hull full BBRRR clung to my buddy's ski in order to tow mine in, probably 15-20 minutes in ICY water.SUCKED
    2 years ago rode around the edge which was only 20-25 feet of open water from shore to ice. Trying to keep some speed up while turning around and changing direction I spilled weaing just jean shorts. Landed on/in the edge of the ice. Didn't think much of it. Just jumped back onto ski and got out of the water ASAP. Didn't freeze thought all was good. Back on shore and walking towards the house, I started seeing and feeling my shoes fill with blood. Looked like a cheese grater ate the side of my leg.
    So...
    If you venture it, stay in the boat!!

    Hmm good post. I had thought about how it's a little risky, but didn't think that in depth. I was thinking it would be a great shot of me in a winter coat where you can see my breath, but we're on the water! A testament to how hard core the MI hot boaters are.

    If you do go out don't go alone. You won't last long if you end up in the water. Be Safe!

Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"
