You should have bought it from him (I bought my first boat at 19, not an MC however)

Why did he sell? Is he getting something else?

Must have been a good deal for your dad.... and why are you blaming your father because you did not get a last run behind it?;)

Oh yes... you do have a valid point for sure my friend.. Mastercraft has definitely progressed in quality and being innovative in every aspect of boat engineering......but being better is relative don't you think..

Were you alive in the early 70's when Mastercraft got their start, or just a gleam in your pappy's eye???....;)

?????? ...... maybe 'relatively' better than an '84 Nautique but dude, we're talking a boat that's almost 25 yrs. old.

I love MC of course, I was just saying the newer ones are in my eyes more appealing/better, however I assume the older ones have their stripes. I assume your a old school boat lover which is all good I understand I love old cars.

Ya i was swimming still in the early 70's until the late 70's :D

Yea we pretty much are all friends here on this board....technology and innovation has come a long way since the late 60's early 70's....I am sure Mastercraft has never forgotten their roots, and neither have I....;)

Maybe he wanted to sell the MC and buy something else, and end up with a whole bunch of money left over after "this" purchase.:rolleyes:

i didn't even get to get one last run behind it :( whew I thought the same thing when I was a kid and Dad sold the family boat... The silver lining is that my buddies and I began to ski tournaments just so we could ski inboards. Get on that right away.

Join a show ski team. You will get to be a better skier and learn new things from others on the team. You'll ski at practices and shows.

I joined a ski team in our community when I was in high school and this is how my dad was introduced to inboard ski boats. Very soon after the I/O was gone and in it's place was a Ski Su..... but it was an inboard and the price was right.

MC's have been in the stable since then...

With show skiers, you will learn so many different things that it can make your head spin. The learning curve is huge and fast... If you want to learn something, there is always someone there to help you.

Hands down, that's the best wake I've ever footed behind.

Yes, a sanger has an excellent wake and hole shot. But the rest of the boat leaves alot to be desired. Not many creature comforts or just plain room in those boats. If your looking for just about 2 or 3 people to go out and foot and come back, the boat is great. If you want family room, then not so great.

You did have one last run behind it. If you dont remember it thats your fault. Every run could be your last, make the best of it.

At age 60, this dad will have to decide someday about getting rid of our boat/van and getting out, maybe sooner than most would think. We will first explain to our daughter why and when and probably give her and her husband first chance at it, give it to them or just sell it outright. Anyway, it will be discussed first and whatever the decision is, my daughter has the maturity to accept it and not be selfish, that it is gone, if they don't get it.

Hey Herold, if she passes on it, can I have second right of refusal?

or better yet, would you consider adopting me?

now that I think about it... We're better off with a new boat. ;)

there where alot of problems with that boat and it usually seemed to kill the mood half way through the day when it decided to act up... It had it's days though.. man i tell you what :)

There you go Kazer, remember that family boat that got you hooked
in the first place, took me 25 years to get my own, your young enough
yet to find your priorities, get a boat and live for awhile before settling
down.
is footin all you do? don't have a boom, but do boarding and some skiing. If the new boat does'nt come soon enough we can hook up
and i'll give you your fix.
You said you were in Paw Paw correct?
I'm 15 min away
