We recently just lost our dealer here in the SD area. Don't know exactly why but I think I have a good idea.

What/How does one become a MasterCraft dealer? The closes dealer we have now is California Skier out in lake Elsinor (about 100 miles away)

Any of you dealers out there know how to become one?

Come on slink you can do it! Walk away from that big corporate relo to TX and open a dealership in SD. No worries about that pending baby, etc.

In my opinion, I do not think you will get it!!!! The Elsinore dealership, lost a good amount of its northern territory and I am guessing that its gain of the southern territory will not be taken easily... Just my opinion!!

i dont know about in other areas, but around here, a used boat store like carmax would be great. large selection of used boats that are all inspected and ready to go...plus a service center where you can go, since dealers dont want you when you bring a used boat you didnt buy from them.

It's something like $49.95 or $55.55 ... you send me the money, and I send you a glossy picture that says "MasterCraft" ... it's up to you to sell it, and you can set your own price, but this is the cheapest way to become a Mastercraft dealer ... the other way ... skip the regional sales guy, get ahold of Corp. and tell them about your plans for a $howroom ...

HA HA!!! Too bad you are moving, cause owning a dealership in SD would be pretty freaking cool! I bet you would have a huge Saltwater Series market.... maybe even sell a few CSX's

Jeez!!! The credit card bill just came in!! I see Slink bought a Texas State Flag and a Rainbow flag, to show his true allegience and Pendo bought some thing from a sex shop for queers... I am not sure what he got, but by the title of the place, it sounds like penetration is the only way to go!!! ;) :D

what up man, did somebody just steal your girlfriend ... seem kinda uptight?

On the edge closed? I was in there a few weeks ago and saw that they were also selling another brand (I forgot which one, Centurion?) of ski boats. I think the San Diego area has been dominated by Calabria since the get go, or no one can afford one since the housing boom and bust.

I talked to my neighbor in El Cajon and he sold his house for 700K two years ago, two houses down from my old one ughhhhhhh! I did do well, but two more years may have meant 200K more ughhhhhhh!

That's sad to hear on the edge closed, or did they stop selling MC?

My bad.... They no longer sell MC. Bruce and on the edge is still there but if it doesn't sell MC whats the point! I don't want my boat serviced by a Centerion dealership, I want it serviced by someone that knows MC!!! what part of El Cajon? I am off pepper

Pepper Dr and Vulcan, by the Christmas tree farm. I owned the house on the corner of Vulcan and Danny.

I wanted to look up you and Rex while I was there, but I spent most of the time there in the desert over Presidents Day Weekend. I sure miss Glamis. I also rode up to San Vincente, but it was closed.
