Great photos. the boat looks beautiful and everyone looks like they are having an awesome time. The video comes up as private. Can't watch it.

No better feeling than being out the back of a boat you have built yourself

Very cool that you get to lead the races!

Glad you are having fun taking the boat out. You did an amazing job on it, and now get to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Looks like a lot of fun! Glad you are on the water. I know my back wouldn't like a kneeboard :)

Hi all,
Went out again on the weekend to test out my new kneeboard.
Boat polished on Saturday everything ready, up early Sunday morning and packed the esky with food and drinks. Hooked the boat up for an early exit to the dam, that’s when we discovered that some low life had walked up our street during the early hours of the morning kicking in the panels on everyone’s cars!

Nice delay to the start of the day having to do Police reports. They got the two doors and front guard on my Ute 😡

Anyway we got out to the dam and the Bell performed beautifully, lots of kneeboarding and tubing with friends, this boat is such a blast, the wake is amazing for the kneeboard.

This is what it is all about for us,

Enjoying the boat and getting my kids on the water and having fun. They love the boat and heading out in the water.
