    Yes, always be careful in the water.

    You wanted to water ski without a swim vest?

    Guess you'd never water skied before.

    I've never water skied, my Mother wouldn't let me. She wouldn't let me dive either said diving was too dangerous. But I too swim like a fish.

      Remember, I was in my teens, I was invincible.
      I was very new to water-skiing, so yes, I was VERY lucky I had someone with me who was knowledgeable AND insistent on water safety.
      Had my mother known about my waterski event....well, that's another story!
      My parents were both sorta jocks and encouraged my brother and me to enjoy sports, which we did, though my preference was more towards the warm weather outdoors kind (as opposed to my mother's life long love - into her 80's - of snow skiing, which I enjoyed except it was too darn cold!).

      I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!
