Well, after reading all the posts you guys are right. I never took into consideration that it was so difficult to find a driver. Back when we skied it was an all guy thing. There were cops and pilots always around and finding a good driver was never a problem. I can see your point though.

The other day my son lost his favorite hat (blew off). I swung the boat around but the chop was too big to get into position to pick it up. Without too much thought I grabbed a cushion and dove in after the hat. As the boat was drifting away in the strong breeze my wife couldn't get back to me. My 14 year old son finally took the helm and did a great job following my yelled instructions. Thankfully I'd been letting him run the boat some the past couple of years. I had visions for a couple of minutes of floating around out there all afternoon.

Sounds like that Perfect Pass would be cheaper than marriage counseling in the long run.

Very easy. Took me about three hours by myself. If I hadn't reversed some wires it would have been less. Called PP and the rep talked me through it. Very professional.

T3, great story. Glad you were able to recover the hat. Yeah, you and I are in the same position. Perfect pass seems like the fix.
