Hey Eric; See the gas problem is fixed, seems like you are getting lots of use on the boat and hope you are enjoying the many water sports. Just wanted to see how it's working out for you and how you like it now after using it for part of the summer? How many hours have you put on so far?

erkoehler
07-14-2005, 03:50 PM
I am rapidly approaching 50 hours of use since getting the boat!

I LOVE IT!!!!

It has been a great boat, and I am sold on Mastercraft for LIFE!!!

That's great to hear! Knew that was a great boat.


I'm about half your hours. :( But still a good year for me so far.

erkoehler
07-14-2005, 04:02 PM
Yep, it has been a great year boat wise! I am hoping to either modify the boat alittle more over the winter months or trade up.

I would like to add a tower and some ski/board racks. Also more interior and tower lights. Or find a newer PS 190 w/ the same already on it.

Dam 50 hours. You need to find the water dude. We put almost 35 on ours last week Just got in now. Would still be there if it wasnt for the rain.

50 hours.... I wish! I think I've got about 25 or so all season. Between the boat being down half the season and a prego wife, this just isn't going to be the year. :(

Leroy

Geeeez Jeremy! That's one French work week! Didn't you just get it running again?


Erk; I've found you can do a lot of upgrades for what you will lose in any trade, but many people are better traders than me.

Erk - Glad to hear the boat is working out well. I'm not sure if TT is ready for you to consider purchasing a new boat. We're just now getting caught up from this one. :purplaugh

Not that much guys. I just go when I have the chance. Yes I just got it running, but you are forgetting I stayed on a houseboat for 5 days last week. You can put alot of hours on if 5 days with nothing else to do.

Remember to turn the key off at night.

Really, glad to see you are getting to use and enjoy the boat that much. I only have about 10 on mine so far this year, but someone was hanging on to a rope for the entire 10 hours.

Its broken in! Have a lake party that I am bringing it to on the 6th of august that should be a REALLY good time. I try to remember the camera. I asked what goes on at the party and here is the response I got:

You know, the regular things; Orgies, drinking, naked water skiing, show girls, food, etc.

What did you think?

Well we know Doug's boat isn't "broken in." With all those rules: can't eat, can't drink, can't talk...What's that rule 354 Doug?

353. Their will be NO spitting watermelon seeds in the boat
354. Their will be NO consensual *** on the boat
355. Their will be NO midgets with cowboy hats on the boat
