So... I have stopped in at Chicago MasterCraft on four different occasions and I have yet to meet up with Eric. The only time I have ever met the guy was when he was on my lake in Wisconsin giving a fried a test drive. So I'll throw the question out there... Eric, exactly what hours do you work??;) Would it be easier to hook up if I told you I might be interested in a used 209?:rolleyes:

Eric REALLY does work at Chicago MC! I bought my boat from him. He works just about 24 hours a day, as I got a call from him last night at about 10pm PST about some warranty issues I have been having. The guy is dedicated and works his arse off!!

Just bustin his chops:D It appears as I will have to set up an appointment with the man just to shoot the $hit. I did walk out of the shop with a request for quote in my hand for some window decal work the pro shop is interested in plus a new pair of board shorts for my daughter.

I think he has been "sighted" at the store but to this day no one has actually seen him "working" at this location.

How can you describe playing with other people's boats all day as work? Admittedly the occaisional customer may put him through some paces (right Sodar?) but come on ... work?
I hear he is going to add "how to roll back the customer's hour meter" to the FAQ.

That's why it's fun to bust on him. You can tell he is working. I have seen some bote for sale / wanted threads and he isn't up to his normal 30 second response standard.

These boat guys do work 7 days


They come in aroud 10, leave for lunch around 12:30, get back around 1:30 smuuze a customer, take a demo ride around 3:00 and "be out with a customer the rest of the day"

Yeah they are killin it.

If I was around boats all day long, especially MC boats I could not call that work......

Doug G

Right, Law enforcement if I remember correctly.

You can say that again.....(Now if you said, if I were around these boats in the service dept. all day) That's work..
With the exception of the 4 hour "test drive" that is ;)

I skied with a guy who moved to Bangkok in the 90's. He sent us a fax that just down the street from the ski show he could get a very nice lady or a bag of weed for $20. I told my other buddy that we would never see him again. He still lives there 15 years later!

Ahh, you have "a friend" like that too. So do I. the one that tells me all of that kind of information that I would never know on my own. :cool: One time, that friend got hemorriods, and I was too embarrased to go buy some prep H, so I had to go buy some for him. Of course I explained that to the cashier. Yea, this isnt for me, my stoopid buddy is to embarrased to come in here and buy it. Oh yea, thats right, he wanted a box of those trojans too. :cool:

..... call Erk, let him find what you want and schedule a test drive. I do all the leg work for my parents and then get my dad hooked on it and let him sign the check!! I have been doing this since I was about 10!!!:)

This last time around was a little easier, since I bought the boat... I did not have to work on selling the idea to my dad... It was kind of nice cause I was already sold, the part that was hard was writing a check for it!! :rolleyes:

I think I completely misunderstood your point here...:o
Typically, guys that have been in the sales business for a long time look down on young, kids like they are wasting the salesman's time, which usually turns into treating the kid lame and talking 'down' to the kid. This is lame for a few reasons. First, there are a lot of kids who really do know their stuff and are not idiots when it comes to boats and second, most kids know how to work their parents and can actually be an ally to the salesman.

That was my point... not to call some TT people old, but just to verify that he will not be mistreated by some salesman because he is a young kid. Thats all!
