I think I may have found the MasterCraft of my dreams. This may be the one I pull the trigger on. What do you guys think?

That's one sweet looking boat there toober. That sweet ford will pull one of those big banana tubes easily. I would not worry about the lack of a drivers seat either, thats what milk crates are for. 8p 8p

Ski platform needs to be reteaked, but besides that looks good.

I don't think I recall seeing your pull through garage in the garage thread. Nice boat, garage, and dog!

I bet that thing runs like a champ. Might want to just do a run-through with the dry-vac and maybe a new coat of wax, you'll be good to go.

Nice boat slinky.
Do you think the one on ebay could look as good as yours with a little buffing?

TX.X-30 fan, thanks for the idea on the milk crates, maybe Milkmania can let me know where I can get a few.

Thanks for the input guys.
I hope to put in a last minute bid and get it cheap.

I really think with a little work, I can get it looking as good as TMCNo.1's boat.

TMCNo.1, what should my first step be on that platform?

Hey thanks a lot for the compliments, actually the drive thru garage serves as "Steve's Mobile Car and Boat Wash" too...you ought to see my wash attendenettes when it is hot outside....

From the photos I can tell the boat needs a drivers seat.
Can anybody help me out and let me know if anything else is missing and where I can get it?

Thanks, Tom

I can relate! I have a steel carport build in the lower part of the driveway and there is always shade and a nice breeze blowing thru. When cleaning up vehicles, the sun doesn't dry the water on the finish and create problems cleaning hot window glass. It also makes a perfect place to clean up the boat and trailer after a trip to the lake and prepare it for the next trip prior to putting her to bed after a hard day.

Overton's has some nice drivers seats, yet the seat may cost more than the boat.:rolleyes::eek:

Not meaning to change the subject, but have you ever seen the Camper/Boat Tow Rig Demolition Derby?
Makes me want to buy this jewel and build me a Demo Derby Rig! I want to be the World Champion and with a MC as tough as they make'um, I believe, I would have a chance.:rolleyes: :D ;)

Saw that lastnite on SPEED.

Looked like fun, saw everything from boats on trailers to tent trailers to old travel trailers and simple carge trailers. It appeared the simpler the trailer the better the chance of winning.

With a Boat Buddy, transom tiedowns, dino oil, cutting board trailer bunks, new impeller and a slick coat of Starbrite Teak Oil on the platform, how could I loose?:cool: :D 8p I thought that's what Perfect Pass was for??????????????
