Yep Dave, have 2 wakeboards, twin ski's and a slalom ski for the boat here.
Have only done a little in Queenstown but did lots back in Sydney when I owned a couple of boats there.

Nothing like a couple of mates, a day of wake boarding and waterskiing, and then putting the boat up on the sand at the local beer garden for beer and a seafood feed.

Great way to spend a day...

Just had a massive stroke of luck.
Picked up a swing mooring for the boat which are as rare as rocking horse shit here.
Super convenient now.
No more trailering to and from the water.
Will stay there for summers and in the shed for winters.

Check out the Remarkables Mountain range in the background on the third pic...

I guess a swing mooring is a cover? Nifty! Nice mountains too!

Yan - I suppose you're on Lake Wakatipu? Looks like about 50 miles long! Kewl! ... sorry, 80 km

Our NZ friends are up in Nelson again for the week, same place we went when I was there exactly 1 year ago .. just before this stupid fuckn virus hit

You guys (NZ) won't even let us dirty Americans in!

Anyway, we've got a boat too: 2007 Cobalt 226 with an 8.1 liter 375 HP duoprop Mercruiser. Back in '06 I was really getting back into pleasure boating and decided to sell the old V6 boat and go all-out on the new one. Now ... we barely use it and it hasn't been on the water in over 2 years

I am most impressed on all levels extra!!!

It is in fact Lake Wakatipu, and your Cobalt is 10 times the boat I have.
The machine you have is amazing and I'm very jealous.

And don't feel special.
Its not just "dirty Americans" who are not allowed in.
At the moment it's the whole dirty world!

We are trying hard to stay clear but tomorrow the old or a new strain could end our amazing run with this virus and completely change everything.
It's that type of situation and is potentially nothing more than a click of the fingers away...

Yan - The Cobalt is a great boat, probably one of if not the best in the pleasure / runabout class, made with the best materials, no shortcuts anywhere, and I friggin loved it for the first couple years when we were still all into boating. But if I had it to do over, I wouldn't because it's actually too nice, essentially flawless, and flawless things combined with having a good relaxed time with a group of family / friends don't go together for me. My friend's beat up ol' POS pontoon that neither he nor anybody else cares about, but it runs good, is a lot more fun ... no worries.

So I may have talked you out of the jealous part, and now instead, like doznkoz, I'm jealous of you being in NZ, with all it has to offer, plus next to zip COVID issues.

I spoze the grass really is always greener

I know. Thats why I said yours is 10 times the boat.
Send some pics mate.

Tell you what.
Seeing as you are not 100% happy, ship the Cobalt over here and pay for the Four Winns to get back to you and I'll swap.

See?
Always thinking of others!

Even the dog loves the boat!
