:twocents: Nothing wrong with the ole SKiers. I believe they used CC hulls for awhile. That one, however appears to be rough. I can't see not taking care of these boats! Hope someone fixes her up!
PS No way on the 190 comment, any year! I loved barefooting behind that hull but slalom goes to the 190 all day! Boat did have a good Kneeboard wake though! Definitioon of "ski" may be needed!I know there are some people just trolling and shopping for an old cheap boat (i know that's how i found the site)

Kinda looka like a MasterCraft wanna be, i saw an Arican Skier once, and from afar it looked like a stars and strips, but once you for up close it wasnt. But it looks really clean for being older.

I have skied behind an american skier, they are really nice boats, powerful with a nice wake. For some one on a budget that cant afford a MC, it is a good way to go.

I would buy one of them before a malibu for sure

What Tones said. That looks like a good deal on a decent boat - thanks for the link...I have a friend who is looking for something exactly like that.
