Gentleman,

After a long, fun, safe weekend wakeboarding and tubing with friends my weekend came to a end after my buddy allowed my ski rope to get sucked in to my jet intake :)st

How he allow it to happen, I dont know but its in there and I dont know where to begin?

I dove in the water and try to pull it out but no luck, after paddling a few hundred yards we finally got the boat out and its now sitting in my garage.

Now my question is where do I begin??? any suggestions, and this common?

Thank yall.

That sucks.

My beautiful wife which I love so much did the same.

I was in town collecting some stuff, they took the hand hole cover off while the boat was still in the water. Imagine my surprise coming back and all I could see was the nose of the boat sticking out the water.

She was banned from driving my boat:D

Now she suck up ski ropes with the RXP215 Seadoo I bought her. I don't cut the ropes off any more, did it once - they learn real quick.

We don't have EPA, I see the Water Police maybe once every 2 years:D

At least I have an excuse now when I spent money on the boat, I just remind her of that fateful day she made a submarine out of my boat.:)devil

as an aside Every boat should have a small sharp knife on board at all times along with PFDs , horn , fire extinguisher etc ..

Why couldnt you keep a water hose handy and use a propanre torch. Ski rope will just fall apart as soon as the torch hits it. Guess it depends on how much rope is in there.

Yeah, a long knife should do it, even tho the torch idea would be nice :D the rope is a synthetic wakeboard rope and I honestly think there is 75ft worth in there so it should be fun. I do appreciate yall thanks.
