I give up. I can not upload to gallary from phone and could only get these 80k thumbnails to post after downloading app. When using browser and I search for photos I only get options for camera, camcorder, microphone, and documents. Been posting on forums for 20 years. Frustrating. These are great pics that I can not share

Looks pretty good to me. Good job! Ski-Daddy should be proud.

Thanks. Owner was tickled. Part of the problem is I took them off of my faebook page. Super low rez. I just realized that I need to use originals that are on a SD card and can not post other than thumbnails from phone. Been messing for hours as it is below zero and windy here.

I'm starting a 1992 Malibu skier next week (my childhood boat) curious what you used. Orbital or dual action

You meant Rotary or DA. And definitely Rotary. And sandpaper. I never use a DA on Gel. Worthless. I never even owned a DA until a few years ago when I started doing more vehicles and wanted perfection.

Do you hand sand them?

You could use the DA for the sanding part of it. I know the sanding disks probably are bit more expensive though, and some people prefer the control of doing it by hand.

I do machine sand. Especially on boats like your older malibu that has really no curves. Although I dont't use a polisher to sand but rather a smaller throw dedicated sander. I meant earlier that I didnt have a DA polisher until a few years ago. Not sanders. Just dont do your whole boat to find you put nasty pigtails in it all over. Figure it out your process in a spot before machine sanding entire boat with a polisher

I've been using forums for 20+ years and I too found out you cannot upload photos on your phone to the gallery.


I end up either e-mailing them to myself and then uploading the normal way via my computer or hooking my iphone to my computer and transferring the pictures to my computer and then uploading them to the gallery.


I think this is why everyone likes Facebook, it's a lot easier to share a picture and it requires zero thinking or skill.

Yes I did end ip getting that far after much effort. But then trying to drag and drop became a huge pain to put into post and I didnt have the option to space them with wording between. And they still went on as thumbnails anyway. I read your post on posting pics but it applied to a computer. I gave up. Thank you for posting them. My pc is down and as such my hands are tied and also why the pics are so crappy as I had to pull them from my fb page. Thanks. Now to find a decent resizing app for phone

The new clean rub rail really stood out to me on this job. I took the rope off, soaked in bleach mixture, and then inverted it so the outside full of abrasions was inside toward the boat. The little details that really make a difference.

Nice work! I have spent many hours being drug through slalom courses behind a boat just like that!

Awesome! I grew up water skiing behind my grandfather's 1981 Ski Tique!

My buddy has a 2002 196 slalom with python edition. (Big block 430 hp). All I can say is wow. Funnest inboard boat I have ever driven. Flying dock footing starts. Back deeps. Incredible. Barefoot and slalom course guy here. Broke a ski (and ankle) running late into #5 once. I have done quite a few ski boats. Will post some more. It is how I got started in this business. Glad others love slalom boats. These days it's mostly wake board boats
