I know that all sports have their ups and downs. I think it was Carla that posted some Ski Race pictures the other day, and they sure brought back some great memories.

Outboard Ski Racing is making not only a come back, I think it is bigger than ever. Mercury Racing's new 300XS is proving to be the motor for outboard Ski Racing. Yes, they cost $17,000 but they run and run and run. And they hardly burn gas. Something like 6 gallons an hour.

A good 2.5 was an easy $12 grand and they break and they break and they break....

Greg Foster is selling his Anderson 2.5's to buy a 300 XS, if that means anything. Contact me if you are interested in a 2.5 complete Anderson motor or a 260 Anderson 2.5.

Whoo-hooo......YES bring on the Ski Racing pictures, would love to see more.......funny thing with ski racing, you can leave it, let be on it's own for awhile go off and do other forms of racing and such, but somehow it always creeps back into your life, and probably for all types of racing for that matter!

Just going through my photos and seeing everyone else photos.....just gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling and memories of what fun we had!!

Thanks Ron!!
