Triumpt ... why, why would you subject us to such cruelty?

I've hit the water around 40 mph. I've taken plenty of falls when skiing, and in a hard cut I'm sure I was able to get up to that speed easily, but in this case I was young and dumb and actually jumped out of the boat as I thought it would be fun. It wasn't quite as fun as I expected.

That's a rockin' chassis; and there isn't even any swell. Oh - hang on......
