It is my understanding many of the ski boat manufactures will be represented at the Charlotte NC show this year.

As of right now we are planning on displaying 5 2011 MasterCraft's. A 2011 X-2, X-15, X-25, X-35 and X-45 all with brand new Ilmor Engines.

MasterCraft,Ilmor and Charlotte Ski Boats representivies will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

I was able to attend the ATL Boat show this past weekend and it was packed!! MasterCraft was the only manufacture that had anything "New" to talk about.

No power tower for the Charlotte Show, the X-25 we have on order with a power tower is not due to be delivered until May.

The Power Tower is a very cool tower and we are excited to have it available.

What you talking about?

How about you trade in the X-14 on a silver flake and black 2011 X-25!

Hopefully one day we can start stocking new direct drive boats again. Right now we are not selling many new direct drives so it is hard to justify the flooring expense.

Most of the new PS190's,PS197's and X-14's I sell customers prefer to custom order the colors and options they are most interested in.

Believe me I'd love a black and silver flake x25!!!! I can totally understand not flooring a dd boat. It's just a little sad that the industry has come to that but again understandable. Hell I was as picky a customer as you ever had.

I guess this is what you get with old school folks who want the DD's -- we have patience and are real picky and anal I reckon.

John E. you are defiantly one of a kind my friend!

All buyers are different; it is very hard to put everyone in the same category. The cool thing is at the end of the day we all share common interest, the sound of a V-8 engine and smooth water!!!

Lee it was great to see ya again. I hope the show went well and you guys sold some boats. Did that sweet X25 sell? That boat was awesome! You guys did a great job on the stereo in that boat. Your display was by far and away the best at the show. I will be by in a few weeks to get some parts from you for the spring tune up!!

Being a new company I have to stock what I know will sell quickly. In the past few years we have stocked many DD boats and many of them had birthdays on our lot.

I am pushing to rebuild the DD market in Charlotte so we can stock DD boats again, I have recently hired a new employee by the name of Charlie Vroon to help with sales, Charlie is a younger guy that loves to slalom ski and barefoot.

Once I get Charlie up to speed we will start hosting true skiing events and this will hopefully drive DD sales.
Thatís my plan, we will see what happens.

Knox, I feel like the show went very well for our first year. The X-25 is not sold yet, I will be very surprised if it lasts 2 weeks with the amount of people that have scheduled sea trials for next weekend. The stereo in that boat is very cool, one of the best I have seen or heard in a while. Thank you for complementing on the display. It took a lot of hard work by many people to get it dialed in.
Let me know when you are ready for your tune up parts.

Lee, I'm not griping at you. I'm griping at change. :) My local dealer hasn't had a new direct drive on the showroom since 2005 I'm guessing. You've got to go with what you can sell. I understand.
