yeah brad, I saw your 87 and a first thought it was the same, only thing hat looks different is the interior.

Welcome aboard redmike! It's amazing when they have been taken care of >15 years old and look like they rolled off the showroom! Nice boat!

Lots of thoughts on the points versus electronic... I like the points, easy to work on, plus I can work on them on the water. I keep an extra set in the boat with all tools needed. Some folks like the electronic end, but if they go out, you are stuck there! :mad: But the points will give you more trouble than the other..

yeah, i had the same thoughts about the points; i can change a pair in about 5 min, for about 15 bucks, lots of points for the price of electronic!

That's what I think.... And 90% of the time, a finger nail file will get the job done! ;)

amen on the file, and in a pinch, a matchbook cover works great as a feeler gauge!!!! saved me before on my old jet boat...

works like a charm!!!! I would tell you to change from a manual fuel pump to an electronic if you don't have it.... A $25.00 change and much better performance!!!

MasterCraft is like a fine wine. These boats are just as appealing (maybe even more appealing) as they age. Every time I see a pic of an older MC, it makes me sorta envious. What I'm really trying to say is -- NICE BOAT!!!
