My dealer bought my burnt up X1 from the insurance company. The only part left was the transom. He is almost finished turning it into a bar. This looks really cool in person so I took some pics. He is wanting to sell this and make more if anyone is interested.

Bbmgr: I would think DryDock would give this to you as a parting gift since they made money on the rest of your boat. Headed there soon can't wait to see it.

I have no idea on the weight, but I will ask. I think he is asking $5000 once it is completed.

Kind of cool. But if there is a market for this thing for $5000 then he ought to get out of the boat business and build these full time.

Make a few and put them on consignment down here HA HA HA. I am sure that there will be a crew down here in May to cozy upto that bar.

It looks AWESOME...Between that bar and the coffee table for sale on here...what a nice
place to hang out.

The crew down there will need a bigger bar than that. We'll try Mark's Xstar on for size and go from there.

The Fort Wayne Boat Show starts next week Thursday and Dry Dock always has the best display. I would say this bar would be part of his booth but he no longer sells MC. If I see it there I will take a picture.

In my opinion MC lost a great dealer in Northeast Indiana. Heck I still use DD for my MC service needs. MC needs to investigate the drop in sales in the area and go back to DD and compete with 'tique under the same roof. Sorry jsut needed to get that out.

So what ever happened with your boat situation? What did you end up replacing it with?

Great idea very cool and looks like a top notch job. I bet it will be a tuff market selling them. A guy I know was doing the same thing with NASCAR front ends building desk and tables. I think he had a tuff time of it. Hard to spend 5k if thats the price on just a bar.... but it is an MC bar so you never know!

If the builder reads this thread.... it's the marketing of a product like this that will make it or break it. The hardest part is finiding and getting it infront of the people that could and would aford it, believe me. Been there done that.

Nice job I would love one at our camp for those after skiing fluid intake sessions.

Good thought. I want to bring the 205 over this summer but not on the weekend. That place sure has changed since I left just 7 years ago.

It would be perfect floating next to the houseboat! Or for dancing girls!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.......guess not. I'm not a fan of the new "Power Tower" or the Ilmor engines. Looks like I'll either be getting a hold-over, or a used one.

Crowded on the weekends. There is never any smooth water. The only thing to do on the weekends is drink at the sandbar.

Nice choice! Excellent use of your old boat. Good way to keep it "alive".

Here is a link to the finished product. He is asking $3995.00, but he may be negotiable. It looks incredible in person.
