Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying " I'll try again tomorrow".

It's been a lot of years now, but my son and I used to do that. It really was a rush.

Re: snowmobile on water

I had my time riding water back in the late 90's with a SkiDoo Formula III, 600 triple. It was like that sled was made for water as much as snow. The experience was very exhilerating, as shown in OP photo. The ride is quite smooth, things go quiet and peaceful.

The Yamaha sled of the day were no good for water. Holes in the fairings allowing suspension movement, also allow water to splash in directly to the clutches. Not good.

I did see some sleds make their way to the bottom of a lake. A teenage couple were riding a small Polaris 340 trying to run water at an area remote from the rest of the crowd. My brother-in-law and I saw them go down. I truly believe if we weren't there to help, there would have been two drownings as the ice was breaking away where they we trying to climb out. River current was fighting against them. For some reason, I had a long enough rope in my tool kit.

Never rode water again. Too risky.
