    Find yourself a group of younger 30-somethings to ski with. That will keep you young and get more time on the water. If you are in a situation where you need to negotiate for someone to pull you...

    Or 99 Mobius has about 475 hours on it. We are skiers and rarely pull tubes or wakeboards and only run in calm water. Plus I have 3 other boats/locations I can ski behind depending on conditions.
