Just a heads up. They always got quite a bit of stuff there and there was a MC booth last year but not sure who sponsored it. At the Expo Center at State Fair Park.

I am shooting to be there on the 23rd.

I believe that the MC dealer there last year was Summerset Marine. http://summersetmarine.com/

The sign I always see is merging onto 94E from 894...right before the exit to state fair park.

Might go but the price of new boats makes me wonder who the boat manufacturers think will be buying their boats. Maybe just the ultra rich. Certainly not cheapskates like me :o

just went tonite. not nearly as much stuff as in the years past. talked with the guys at summerset marine for like 45 mins. very friendly people. they let us play with the new BIG display for a while and also the tower cam. really nice stuff. they had an x-14, x-star and a few others but i cant remember. was a pretty good show though.

I made it to the show on Saturday. I was sitting in the x-14 for about 3 hours before I was kicked out by my lovely lady :o She did, however, say we could buy the boat after a few things were paid off. Her words exactly: "This boat is beautiful!" That's my girl :D

**and a little special treat for those of you who went on the weekend**

Will Christian was there! Representing MC and selling for Summerset Marine. Some people might know, I have a little crush on Will. The coolest part was I was sitting in the driver's seat of the x-14, paying no attention to anything around me, and this lovely English accent said I looked good in the driver's seat :cool: As I looked up, I'm sure my look was priceless. I was blown away by how wonderful, kind hearted, and articulate she was. I bet that we talked to her for about an hour.

The girlfriend said the only reason why I liked her was because she was small, blonde, and had a killer accent. I couldn't disagree with her :D

i sat in that x-14 for a while too. sweet boat!! the salesman let me go in and play with the BIG screen and we were both trying to figure out how to use the tower cam but neither of us could figure it out:confused: i really liked how they had the prostar up in the air like that, but i'd rather be able to sit in it imho. they had a nice display though and very friendly people.

I was talking to a sales person about the 214 on the revolving platform. He told me that the boat sold on Friday, at 30k off MSRP! I know where I'm buying my next boat!

that was a nice lookin boat too. What do you think of the new windshields they had on some of them that end right by the drivers seat?

Made it to the show on the 23rd. It was downsized quite a bit from last year but a good time none the less.

Any pictures?:)

The kids thought Twiggy the water skiing squirrel was cool too!
I wish I had luck like Barefoot and was able to see Will Christian instead though. I guess I will just have to watch my 2010 Rewind video again.

I noticed the windshield too. Kind of cool, but I'm not too sure yet. Might take a while to get used to that look.

Not a great pic, but here it is.

Comes in really handy to add a boom to the boat :)

Handy but ugly would be IMHO. Really great would be one windscreen that would allow for good looks and a boom.

I won't lie.

I came away from the MKE show more impressed with the Malibu's than the Mastercraft's

i looked at all of them for quite a while, and i couldnt see any comparison between the BU's and the MC's the style and and quality just didn't seem like malibus could match it IMHO
