I am looking to purchase a used 197, some indicate TT behind 197 or some do not use it. What is the difference? Is the mc 197 tournement team edition have something that the other 197's do not??

TT boats are issued to 100 Tournament Team members. The TT members get the boats for a discounted price, use them to pull local tournaments and then sell them in late summer/early fall in preparation for their new boats to be delivered the following year. More info: http://waterskimag.com/news/2001/12/04/the-mastercraft-tournament-team/

Depending on what year 197 you are looking at, they can have some variations from the 197 of the same model year. In past, the TT boats have been sort of a test bed for the changes that are to come in the following production years 197. Also, a few things are staples of TT boats. For example, pre-2010 TT 197's all had a 5 peice windshield and a black gelcoated driver's dash. They also come with the haulmark badge stating the boat is ?? of 100.

Here is a thread of all the TT boats thus far. http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=17532&page=15
