    Saturday last a few of us gathered at American Lake, in Lakewood, WA...My friend James told me He could flip me off his tow-tube-thing...I was up for the challenge I thought:

    Mine is a 125hp Force outboard on a Bayliner Capri...one person is best for speed...anymore and the speed is reduced to 25-30mph...which is still fast enough to hurt when ya hit the water!

    Tubing is a riot! The one's with the 'holes' are tough on us old-timers though. Getting thrown from them is 'ouch'. My bro and I just ordered a two person one that you can lie flat on or sit on, easier to be 'dumped', but also more kind to enter the water at 30-40 mph!

    What's great about tubing is that both little kids that can swim, but might be phobic about water skiing can do it; so can those of us that arthritis makes our old past-time, past! ;)

    Not to mention some daughters and nieces that have lost tops from water skiing but want to hit the water. (bring back 1 piece suits!)
