Just wanted to thank Mastercraft for another wonderful vacation. My '95 PS190 with 900+ hours is running like a top.

We had lots of glass :)

My 5 year old learned how to cut hard on her kneeboard. She also got up, kneeling, on the disc (round piece of plywood with foot-holds) for the first time. Her first trip out, she started ripping 360's

She & I ventured out on my neighbor's 1960's era surfboard behind the PS190 without any balast. As you can see, she had a TON of fun

My wife borrowed a friends ski to start weening herself off of her Connelly Mid-SX (think a smaller big-daddy ski). Before I knew it, she was ripping it up.

Also, I tweaked a rib on my neighbor's old wooden ski that didn't have any boots. The ski was fun, but 100% unforgiving :worthy:

Here's the beast

Thank you Mastercraft for producing a quality piece of equipment that has given my family 700+ hours of water time that cannot be replaced :dance:

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. We sure had a blast.

Yes, we had a great time. It was definitely an "old school" themed kind of week. Next time, we'll need to get the trick skiis out.

I almost forgot about this pic. It's my 2.5 year old cleaning the boat.

Jimmer, nice pics! Now I'm even more inspired to get my 5 year old daughter behind the boat (on anything, but not a toob)

We'll be at Raystown July 25-27th if you want to drag your boat out there. Staying at the lodge at www.raystownresort.com

Wish I could be there. Instead, I am heading to northern VT to attend my sister's wedding (Vermont in the summer... not really sure what she was thinking :confused:)

Actually, it was 360's on the round disk, kneeling.... but - I'm still very proud of her.

That round disk, is an old-school home-made special that was once very popular around here.

It's a piece of plywood, cut into a 36" diameter circle. Then, it has 2 rear-toe pieces screwed on it, in a duck-footed stance. Nothing on the bottom except for paint (what little is left after being used for 30 years).

Thanks for asking. We sure love them. The disk was invaluable in getting a once very timid girl (last year) to move from beside the boat to behind the boat.
