i run my prox on all the watter in the ditches when there is some, i usally run full bore or some for a while, i have a 1.25 inch track that i was crossing with last year whenit was 121, i did some this year now it stands up across watter with the 136 it was fun. i was doing tons last spring racing cars on watter lol whiel they were on the road.
I can run on water easily with the 1.25" I just start off really fast crossing and then slow it down every time I cross. Its more fun going slower, you will feel the sled start to ride a little lower in the water and feel the drag.
30's about as slow as I'd go. If you've got big fat skis and a 136+ you can probably slow down pretty far, as long as you've got the power to get out. My buddy with did cat could come onto the water 10mph and go. Once going he never slowed down that far though. Click the link in my profile to see what I'm talking about.
I would say ya, pretty much anything can swim, and you have the 1 1/4" working with you. Just cross fast your first few times until you get a feeling to where the "edge"of submarining is. I wouldnt slow down to much though, with a 400 if it starts going down, there probably wont be any bringing it back up.
