Well.... I finally got it in the water! A great day out on the water with the kids and family. Put it in April 25 up here in Canada, on Okanagan Lake, Vernon BC. All those sticks and mud on the left is a beaver house make on our neighbors dock. Very sweet day with my new baby......

Good job Pickles! Did you get in the water for a tow? Man, I don't think I have ever seen Okanagan lake that low before. I hear you're under some pretty tight water restrictions this year. Anyway, we'll more than likely be up your way this year again and look forward to going for a spin in her.

Gongratulations! :D

Thanks man, the water is so low I had to pull her out down at Killarny where Moms place is. We're building the dock out this year to get to deeper water.
Can't wait to see the two Moomba's in the water together, you have to bring her up again this year.

For sure! We wouldn't leave home without her. I've been doing some mods to her as well. I got the swimgrid repaired and have a new Seadek pad on the way, installed Stargazer Perfect Pass system, got a 750 lb fat sac for the rear locker (going to get the second one and a couple of smaller sacs for tweaking the angle of the hull), ordered a Fresh Air Exhaust and a ski rack for the tower. Oh, and I'm working on making a wind block for the walk-through.

Now, if the weather would finally cooperate I could get her in the water to enjoy it.;)

Way to go, T100. You look like a happy guy. I kinda' like the orange!

I've taken to calling her "Orange Crush". T100 and I go way back in time to Grade 8. He and his brother and I have been through a lot together in the 27 years I have known them. (man time flies!) I still consider them both some of my best friends. In fact I take a bit of the credit for T100 seeking out a Moomba. I took mine up last summer to Vernon and I think he fell in love with it! ;-)

Thanks guys, I love the orange to, I picked it up in Kent, Washington. $23,000US.Canuckle Head & I go way back and yes he did have an influence on me getting a Moomba. We use to ski as kids out at our family cabin from morning till dusk all summer. Very sweet times, now to make some with the family.
Tight tow lines and fat wakes!!

I've always wanted an orange boat. I'd call it "julius"

Thanks again guys, JesseC, I haven't had time to look into the back end of the steering cable but did tighten the nut on the steering wheel, I'll keep you posted.
