Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: September 2011

Lake Austin - Three Times in One Week - Boat is Working Again!

After breaking down in the boat on Lake Austin on Saturday, Mike spent the next couple of days ordering new parts for the Supra Launch, waiting for the parts to come in, and then working on it the past couple of days.

We took it for a test drive this afternoon, and it seems to all be working again. Two ew fuel pumps, in addition to a new steering cable, and other stuff I helped with and don't know what it was...

This was my third time wakeboarding in one week!  I haven't done that in a couple of years! I'm feeling a little sore, but I'm loving my new CWB Edge wakeboard bindings. They're so much softer and lighter than my other ones. My feet and ankles love them!

I tried taking a few pictures while driving... that was very difficult, but this one turned out pretty cool with Mike in the air, and you can see the Lake Austin scenery from the front and the back...  and I've never taken my hands off the wheel like that...
