The first picture is what it looked like the day I picked it up at Texas MasterCraft, the second pic was a few days ago after the water went down.

I just threw up in my mouth.

So sorry for your loss.

Hopefully insurance will cover it.

What a shame.

I guess Jimmy can get you another on its way for you. I talked to Jeff at TXMC and he told me that you got the x45 but didnt say what color set up you had. Good Luck with a speedy replacement with insurance and finding another boat just like it or another one that is set up just for you.

Did you know the other boat or just happend to be a MC?

Oh I don't own either of these boats!!!

They both belong to a very good friend of mine.

The guy that owns both of these boat is the guy I bought my 35th from.

Oh and yes insurance is paying out on both of them for him.

Must have me confused with somebody else, I haven't ordered a boat nor has he.

Jeff told me that you sold your 35th and bought a 45. He said you sold your 35th to one of your friends because I asked about it. I guess Jeff is confused. Maybe he thought that if you picked up the 45 for one of your friends. I will have to tell him later this week that he needs to put the crack pipe down or just not smoke as much....jk

I'm the friend that bought the 35th, the X-45 in the pic was the one that was purchased to replace it. I picked the boat up from TXMC for him and took it to Nashville to trade them out and came back with the 35th.

I asked him about 6 weeks ago if they had seen a good 03 TT or an 05 TT or a 35th come in on trade lately because I was wanting a black and white boat. Jeff said that I just missed the supercharged boat that you had. Guess I got lost some where along the way.

A look inside the shop after the water dropped far enough they could under the 12' doors.

SSSSSUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKKKK!!! I hate seeing shots like these.
I always wonder what I would do if the flood waters were rising near my boat. I guess depending on the situation you could just float it off the trailer and try to keep it from floating away..... Of course if its near a flooded river and the water is moving fast full of debris, it would be hopeless or to dangerous....

How fast did the water rise? If I knew a flood was coming, I would have hooked up the boat and taken it to higher ground. The X45 looks like it really suffered a lot of damage because it looks like the tower is broken. is it "totalled"?

That's just it. No one expected Nashville to flood like it did. They are calling it a "1000 year flood". Of course you won't here about it on the national news. Some areas of Middle TN got over 15 inches of rain in less than two days.

Here are a few more pics. One is of the shop 24hrs after we left the house. There was only 3in of water in shop at 7am sunday morn. When we returned by boat monday at 7am the water was over the 12ft doors. Unfortunately there was no time to get the boats out. The water flooded the roads getting out before it reached my home. I had to drive my wifes tahoe threw about 2ft of water to get it out while my neighbors uncle had my wife and daughter in his big septic pump truck in front of mejust in case he need to pull me. We ended up with a completely flooded shop, basement and the 2nd level got about 3ft of water.

Couple more pics. Second level of home is elevated 2ft above 100yr flood. The home has a block foundation (basement) that was used to elevate home. You can also visit shutterlfy.com and search historic flood 2010 for more additional pics from other people in the area. We haven't downloaded any pics yet. The wife is working on it. I will post link once she's uploads photo's.

Good idea and the corp told me that my property wasn't dock permittable. I guess they were wrong.

Man this flood sucked! I got lucky living in Murfreesboro. The amount of damage and loss that everyone had was unbelievable. It's even worse when it happens to a MasterCraft. I'm going to cry and be sick. The only good thing was that a lot of people had water front property for a while. National media basically down playing the whole thing, but that's because we can take care of our own here.

The flood was crazy in Clarksville aswell, the local used boat dealer moved all his inventory away from the river really quick. I was hoping to get salvage rights on the Mastercrafts in his inventory if any floated away. HeHe

The people at my work were all mad about being flooded saying it shouldn't have happened with the locks and dams. I explained to them that everything worked as it was intended, nothing broke like the levies in New Orleans. Fifteen inches is a lot of freaking water in a couple of days!

Maybe they shouldn't talk so ill of people living 10 feet under sea level, a jab at me I was born in New Orleans.

So with the boat being under water entirely, if someone bought it, could the motor be torn apart from top to bottom, "cleaned up" and put back together?

Just curious!?


Jeff-Sorry for your losses, both beautiful boats. Glad I had the opportunity of riding in the X45 at MM5. I could not imagine how chaotic things had to have been for you guys that weekend! Glad your family was safe.

I think once you got it apart you'd have to have the heads done all new gaskets and bearings and it would probably run for along time.
