Some of you will remember last year I was charged by my wonderful wife to find her a pure slalom boat. Well that finally happened this summer, and well we've been out on it too much for me to spend the time to post it up, so here it is.

and now the dock looks better every morning

So like everything else, there is of course a story.  Last year the search didn't go as well, a very interesting trip to Alabama, and several others that just didn't work out. 

 

This time however, all it took was a 14 hour drive to Kentucky, a short test ride, and then a nice short 14 hour trip back, and well, now she has HER boats! The LXI is her baby, got her with 288 hours, and in near showroom condition.

I'm pretty sure the VTX is sad, this summer after a late start, we put more hours on the LXI

Can never have too many Malibu's....

I have been telling my wife "You really need more than 1 boat" for years. Nice work.

Other way around on this one, SHE wanted the second one.

Awesome looking boat, and good find with relatively low hours. I remember seeing what I believe to be that same boat on ski it again this summer when I was starting to do research on boats.

@scorban that is the one, I think it used to belong to @BlastRlxi still had a themalibucrew.com sticker on it.

@Levi900rr we will be in Burlington the weekend of the 23rd, maybe your wife should talk to mine!

There is no such thing as a crossover boat, you really need two. Nice find, long live DD!

The black hull looks sweet!  Is it tough to find good water on Sebago, or is it just about getting out early enough in the morning?

We get up early. The water gnats come out at about 9 during the summer, and the rest of the world comes out at 9:30

We are on a smaller cove area, put the slalom course right out front, south wind and walleys do hamper us, but we make it work.

We have had fun getting to know all the ski boats that seem to materalize when the course gets put in, which was late again this year.

This time of year is great though, nobody around.

Beautiful boat!  Congrats.  I'm on Lake Winnipesaukee in Meredith on and off during the summer.  My cousin has a boat on Sebago at Richardson's.  Let me know if you ever make it over to Winni.

Mark, 

Saw the pics of your ride earlier today, it looks really good. Love the way yellow pops off the water. We seldom leave Sebago, but will let you know if we head that way. Reach out if you are going out on Sebago too, always fun meeting up with new faces on the water.

Nice find! Those are the best looking ski boats there is. Definitely better shape than the one that was in Alabama.

That Alabama one left me with a story to tell and a crew member to hit up for a pull down there!

Been meaning to text you and ask how it was working out!

When's your "the ice is here and I have to pull my dock out of the water and go into hibernation as a human" date?

Haha! I don't hibernate. I love cold and snow. 

Dock removal is as much dependent on water level as weather, probably thanksgiving.

Oh I know. 70 degree water is wetsuit weather for you. Heaven forbid if air and water  aren't at least 70 

Last weekend we had 72 degree water and 51 degree air.
