I always like the classic red & white color combo. It looks clean. What power plant does the new boat have?

how does your school afford a new boat a year?

we get it deeply discounted and we sell the last year boat. It comes out to be about the same dollar wise, so why not upgrade?

edit:plus its alabama. they have money to burn

How does your school afford a new boat a year?

If it's like the UNC Water Ski Club, it was used by Alumni and the Ski Team. There was $50/semester fee per member and there were over 60 members. A sponsor, who negotiated the bi-yearly boat purchase, got insurance, maintained the boat (oil changes/tune-ups, winterizing,etc.) also kept a use/slot log for reservations for the boat and it was docked at a local marina. Very time the boat was used it was fueled up, secured in the slip, windows cleaned, wiped down, unloaded, covered by those users and ready to go next time slot. Boat use classes for all, including qualifying designated drivers. The boat never left the dock for a time slot w/o at least one qualified driver. All boat equipment was secured in a steel locked deck box next to the boat. It was a requirement that, at the end of every season and periodically during the year the club members gathered and participated in a deep cleaning/waxing/teak treatment of the boat, no if's and or but's about it and it worked!
The school gave a minimal amount of money under the sports club program, but the dues and that money made the insurance and boat payments after a dealer gave them a deep discount for advertizing decals on the boat. Every 2 years, a Ski Club member usually bought the boat at a great price and a new deal was initiated for a new boat for the next 2 years. For 4 years, I helped the sponsor secure a MC and aid in the upkeep. At the end of my daughters 4th year, 1995, the sponsor bought the boat, cause it was in such good shape and clean, and still has it today.

When I was at Georgia Tech in the mid-80s we did the exact same deal - but with Correct Craft (please no verbal stonings). The only difference is that we had to go get the new one in the spring from the factory in Orlando. I went twice (with seveal others) during spring break using the school's van, getting a factory tour, staying the rest of the week at a lake front hotel with a ramp "breaking it in" at Rollins College's site (thanks Rollins). It was a tough spring break but someone had to go get the new boat.

If Bama looses to Auburn in the Iron Bowl then that will free up Sabans salary and you can have your on fleet!

Mainly because the ski team was the charter sports team at alabama. Our member dues are cheap i think they are only 40 bucks. USA Waterski does our insurance and all of that jazz. Most of our donations go to travel expenses for tournaments. We pay a small due/gas money and everything else is provided by the school/club
