    Ask the Experts | Five Tips for Tow Sports Success

    Try my five coaching keys to make getting up on two skis, slalom or wakeboard the first time easier, more fun and less frustrating. 1. Use an experienced water ski driver and have an experienced skier in the water next to you. The driver will ensure a solid pull, while the spotter can make you more relaxed, and help you maintain position as the boat begins to accelerate. 2. Use the right boat speed.

    Product Spotlight | Keeping Your World and Your Boat Bottom Clean

    Bottom painting has historically been a messy endeavor. Noxious cleaning solvents were to dewax and clean the hull prior to painting, nuisance dust covered whoever had to sand the bottom, and the solvent based paints of past were messing and foul smelling. The folks at Pettit Paint offer a line of easy to use products that are gentle on the environment, the applicator (you), and most importantly, they work well on your boat! By removing the heavy metals in the paint film, and replacing them with more environmentally friendly additives, Pettit's Clean Core Technology can reduce the amount of heavy metals released into our waters by up to 90%.
