Hello Everyone!

Finally got my Sport Trainer out on skiis Monday!! First time on skiis and what fun :D . I had an experienced ski pilot in the front seat to get me going. I put 1/8" UHMW on the Fed 1500's and new alum. keels. I ran a strip of 2 " Teflon tape the full length of the keels and sprayed a coat of Armor All on the plastic bottoms before I installed them. The pilot I had with me was pretty amazed at how slippery they were on the white stuff. Here in N.E. Ohio we had about 3" on the ground by Monday and was a good thing I got out then , because we're losing it rapidly to higher temps and rain. :(
