What does everyone think of the pickle fork boats? I was cold at first but am starting to like them.

To push the point what if MC changed over all of their ski boats to pickle forks? Your 190 with pickle fork? :confused:

Leroy, The more I see them the more I like them. Can't imagine a ski boat w/ that design, but ya never know. Seems more for WB'ing, so the posse can come along. :cool:

I used to love them when I went to the drag boat races.......Blown Fuel Hydros! As far as ski boats go, I'm just getting used to looking at open bows. :purplaugh

I personally don't get it, if i wanted a deck boat, i'd buy a deck boat.

I'm with Tim. If they put that on the straight drives, I'll buy something else. I've already had my deck boat.

Looks like a lot of room in that "deck boat".. You know, for things like the diaper bag and bouncy seat. Oh and the tube..

Fortunately, we have relatives who have proven eager to babysit in all directions. My wife's parents just built a dock less than two hundred feet from the 3 ball on our course.

But if I must cary diapers, I guess they can go in the open bow (or the ski locker).

I like it in a open-bow configuration. but, in a PS190 closed-bow, you can keep it. I don't need the extra weight.

André; In Indy this week. Huntsville next week and Nevada City CA again week after (more night skiing!). Do you snow ski?

Sorry, I really hated the pickle when it first came out, but am starting to like it. I also had the same reaction when I saw the first tower! I had the feeling the thought of a pickle ski boat would evoke emotions! I think we will see it within couple of years. Maybe I should have saved this pix for Friday to post on Friday Drinking topic.

Thanks André, I'll take that!

Let me know when you're ready to run your boat through the chop shop for the pickle mod below. :D

OK, my last concept, but I'm starting to like the look. :D

They look like deck boats. If that's all that was available, I'd be building a pointy nose out of Bondo.

That one looks a bit stubby, kind of like the short wheelbase minivan. I didn't go for that look either.
