This Ebay ad deserves special mention!

WOW! This is one of the most extraordinary ads I have ever seen. WOW is all I can say... and for just $2000!

What is odd about one water ski????
You only use one...you can use two but two is for beginners or stunt stuff where they stand on others shoulders etc.
As to the scope I suspect it may be dear at half the price as it looks flood damaged.

Hi Col


I've had some (too short) holidays in that general area of the world, seemed like a nice place to live.


Hope the skies are generally clearer than Melbourne.
