If the thread gets mean I will just ask that it gets deleted ... being a married man with 3 kids and a decent size boat payment I will try and deny my own temptation of own a 206 and live vicariously through Rod ... pretty boat Rod ... once you have some ski time behind it I'd be interested to hear the comparisons ... is Mike gonna take this in on trade when you get an 07TT 197:)

He's always been after bigger guys like me and Erk. It ain't funny and I don't appreciate it.

I respect you, too, my friend. And I guess we both said what we wanted to say. I have pretty strong feelings about the stuff from my time as a mod when this place got really bad in that regard. But that's not my job any longer. So I shall pour myself a drink, upload ten pictures of my boat, and cry myself to sleep. Be well everyone.

yes i made one bad joke towards erk awhile back, but have since apololgized and put that behind us. other than that i dont feel my posts are any more worthless than alot on here. i think some of you guys are alot ruder to me than i have ever been.

i wont argue there the water isnt exaclty the nicest color. its not nasty in any way, just your typical ski lake without the dye.

no doubt my 197 was beautiful. i still think the 197 is a much nicer looking boat. the 196 is not exaclty a looker.

i dont credit my pb at all to that boat. just happened to get it that day.

i dont think anyone of the big 3 are all that different behind the boat. its moslty preference. the bu had the nastiest bump of all at 22. shorter than than that they all ski great. i went that route becuase that one happen to come up locally and i skied it before and like it,.

rod....nice boat...

i went thru the course last weekend on a 2002 SN....nice wake.....and the owner is a friend of mine....i was teaching them to barefoot off of my boom and they repaid the favour by taking me thru the course off the back of theirs....no dramas..did not even occur to me to question the brand of boat

DON'T take this as piling on Rold, but did I read you to say you have finally found a keeper? 8p

as far as the N boys commenting about what the MC boys would say about you leaving... Puhleasse , I've seen more krap come from N owners over the years on places like nicholls and skifly, and I'd bet it wouldn't take long to find a few outta hand on PNautique.

i guess im not sure if its a full clay bottom or not. it doesnt stain the boat, the hard water from well water does though. lots of cleaning after you pull out. worth it though.

Hey, Nice Boat Rod.

We can all argue brands until the cows come home.

MC vs. SN
Ford vs. Chevy
Trojan vs. Lifestyles
Duncan Hines vs. Betty Crocker
STP vs. Valvoline
Sammy Hagar vs. DLR
Jenna Jameson vs. Tera Patrick

Pulleeeez.......it goes on and on an on. :rolleyes:

I choose Mastercraft, but that dont mean bad on SN.

Now, Baylooner on the other hand......:rolleyes:

I can tell you firsthand that my local nautique dealer was so much of an MC basher it was pathetic to watch... ad-nauseum actually... If he'd only spent more time giving me the koolaid on the 206, I may have had ten thousand posts about nothing on the planetnautique by now, who knows?
