Just when I think I am going to jump in the truck and go get it, it starts pooring. I really hate the idea of towing my new baby 45 minutes in the rain.

The engine cover is huge to hold that beastly 6.0 Ilmore. Interior is awesome!

All the best options, I would have added snap in/out carpet and bow cover, but the rest is perfect......sweet a$$ ride brotha!
....let me know when you are done with her;).....i will take those sloppy seconds anyday..

.....wait one more question...does it have....."The Strut"? :cool:

Oh yea its got the STRUT. It also showed up with a stereo remote by the throttle. I don't think the snap in carpet is an option in the 197.

Can't wait to get it home and get the boat and trailer waxed up. Then I'm going to take it to the lake and run her through the course LOTS and LOTS and LOTS!

Sullivan

Thanks guys, I'll get some better pics up later today. Hopefully. Five minutes ago is was absolutely pooring. It seems to have slowed down little. Maybe I will make a run for it now and see if I can get her home without getting her to dirty. Kills me to think about towing in home in the rain. I hope it has a good cover.

I had the wife leave me her 4Runner today so I can tow it home with that. I figure the 35 inch tires on my truck wouldn't do me any favors.

No tower for me, I like to keep the boat light. In the fall when I sell it I can put any tower on it the new buyer would like.

Sullivan
04-28-2011, 10:08 AM
The platform sticks out of the back of the boat house and is exposed to the weather so we all go with fiberglass. Gives me more time to wax.

Mint is by the Farger Lake Store just outside Battleground off HWY 503

I am with you on this one...don't get me wrong I love my teak platform but man it's a ton of work to keep it lookin good....My 81 had a fiberglass platform and it was great.
I skied a 2011 197 in the fall and it had that platform with an amazing padding on it from the factory, really nice.
hmmmm..come to think of it, I wonder if that boat had the strut. At that point no one was actually talking about the thing yet.....

I dig the look of teak, but that is about it. I don't like cleaning and oiling it, and I don't like the idea of wondering if any of that oil is making its way on to my feet and skis.

Mastercraft has a new strut for the drive shaft. Do a search and you'll find a few threads.

Just got back from skiing behind the boat. This new Ilmore is amazing, gobs of power yet its refined power. Silky smooth and very quite. Totally amazed at this engine/transmission package. Popped the engine cover to show the guys at the lake and one of them who happens to be a promo guy for Malibu made the comment "thats hard on material"! Man that was funny.

How did it ski? I had the best set of my life. Absolutely loved it, I don't know what to point at that made my skiing so good today. I was early to every ball. I don't know if it was me or if it was the nice smooth and consitant pull from the new 6.0.

Its days like today that I am trully gratefull for the life I have been given.

It had to be adrenalin. No one ever hits it the first time out for the season. Or maybe it was your ego! Mine is pumped up just for you after seeing this beautiful piece. Nice but I would have to go teak on a class act like that. AWESOME BOAT.

Heck I've been skiing all winter behind an MB and Response LXi. The 197 was flat out awesome! I still can't get over how powerfull and quite that new 6.0 Ilmore is.
