Willard bay 2nite
Accadacca, Sammy, and I hit Willard bay tonight. Sammy brought the nice package this time. He's got a 27' Thompson with two F350s in it. That's right, 2 of 'em. It's a loud sucker! It'll rip you up out of the water though, and on that ski.
My wife, and Sammy's wife joined us, along with acca's son. In the video, acca and I are in the tube. I'm on the left, he's on the right. I bail out at the 49 second mark, and acca flies out head over heels at the 1:12 mark Then Sammy and I take it for a spin while accadacca drives.
Here are some pics and the video. Sorry, the video is VERY shaky. But, that's what you get while filming in a boat. -- and yes, that image is acca's legs flipping out of the tube.

If it lets you... here is a direct link to the video that will open it in your own player:
Putfile.com doesn't like that though. They want us to go to their site to watch the media, so that link may not work for you. (please tell me if it does)

I am on a mac and they dont act the same as windows. In that situation it prompted me to download or open. I just dumped it to my desktop and watched it local. Loved it!

That is a pretty mean wake. I love Willard, you can always find good water on that lake. I was there yesterday and it was perfect. The only bad thing is when the bugs come out, there are some mean horseflies out there. We didn't see any yesterday. Looks like you guys had a good time as well.

You know, a lot of "elite" boaters look down on Willard Bay. They say it's dirty. Hell, Pineview isn't any cleaner. It's green, and Willard's brown. Pineview makes you pay that damned fee everytime you launch as well, even when you have the state parks pass.
Willard is 10 times bigger, easier to access, and less expensive.

I know what you are saying about the "elite" boaters. Around here they all go to jordanelle or deer creek. Those lakes are alright but you have to be out there late in the evening or early in the morning to get decent water. I'm fine with everyone looking down on Willard though, it just means more open lake for the rest of us.

Then, you'll realize it's a lot easier to land it if you are coming down on the other wake. It makes for a nice, smooth landing ramp, rather than smacking down on the flat water.
