... only maybe for 3 secs. Maurie thought he would have a rip start of the back of the back of the boat, so we all held our breath and bang!!! In the water he went like a Submarine!!!
everyone had such laugh at his expense!!!!...and caught it on camera.
I wasn't going to let the challenge beat me, so I did a deep water start on two skis, got up first time, got my balance and dropped a ski.....consequently got the cheers from the ...
