Cholla Bay 4 Life
Sad news out of Phoenix this week as we report the passing of the PTO cylinder on the Cholla Bay sleigh ride machine. The GF and I went out to Plez on Sunday which surprisingly turned out to NOT have been that bad of an idea as the lake is under these weird Covid rules. Launched the ski out of the N ramp Plez Harbor. Everything sounded decent but that was short lived. Before we even exited the no wake zone the ski was showing signs of a failing cylinder. It had shut off and become really hard to start. Got it started and was able to get it going but something wasn't right and shortly after we came down to an idle in a near cove and the thing just died. No restart. I could tell we lost compression in at least one cylinder. Had to get a TOWBOAT US tow to ramp for a minimum ball kick charge of $200... then dude rubs my face in the shit after he tells me that I could have had a yearly membership and this would be free for $85/year. Get home and sure enough, 140mag(front) and 60psi PTO(back) cylinder... I've had the worst 4 month run of my life. Truck, car, ski... jesus. All my shit is breaking. LOL man... it's tough, this life. Pimping ain't eazy.
