Myself and three other were up there this past Saturday (seeing if I could hook up with Stormy)lots of snow to keep em cooled down and the zoo crew is already starting at the water skips. I'm sure after this week and the steady stream of sleds it'll open up even more. Always a good time at the portage.[thumb]

I am going to try to make a gas tank for water skipping so i dont have to get my seat wet when i sink. i cant afford to just buy a seperated one and i dont feel like pulling out the staples on my seat. im going to make a tank out of a gas can and find a wat to secure it to the sled.

Yeah. I think I have mine figured out but won't know till later tonight if it's gonna work or not. When I put the seat and tank of my 500 onto the 650 tunnel I had to remove a bracket that would hold the original tank on but the 500 tank is different. I'm thinking the tank on my 91 400 chassis has the bracket on it. I hope anyway otherwise I gotta figure something else out

Checked out the other seat and tank but they are connected so I'm just gonna run a ratchet strap over my other gas tank to hole er down. Gonna be a fun day saturday at the portage. Even talked the wife into comin with so hopefully I'll have some pics and videos to post

I LOVE the videos every year! the lake vermillion crew are for one a huge group and two some are a little crazy lol. my favourite sled/person is a guy with a 2005 Polaris XcSp (white/red) and hes got low windshield and c&a's on it. he has a cool sled and he rides it good!

the 2010 vids on youtube yet?

One of my buddies was there last weekend with his yami fourstroke. Went pretty good across the water too. That's sucks you make it up there. I'll hopefully get some good videos and get them posted right away.
