From Troy, Sales Rep:
"I just wanted to take a minute to let you know we are celebrating 5 years in our new location and we want you come help us celebrate. See the attached invitation. You should be getting one in the mail any day now, but in case you miss it, I want you to know that you are invited and to save the date. This is NOT a sales event. This is a PARTY! There will be lots of great food, drink, music, prizes, and friends. There may be a new boat or two on display as well…I am looking forward to seeing you all here. Please RSVP to me or call the store."

Unfortunately no I'm stuck at school with exams right now

His name is Daniel (everyone but me calls him Danny). He'll be the young one he's just 16

We bought our 06 X2 from them back when they were Watersports Marine and our '12 X2 last August

We live on Runyan Lake which is a smaller private lake almost directly across from Action. But I'm on Byram lake, Lake Fenton, and Silver Lake a lot. I work for the Marina on Silver Lake so if I'm not at home i'm probably there.

How do you like Runyan Lake? well obviously you have to like it since you have a place out there. I am curious because i will be in the market for waterfront in the next year or so, and Lake Fenton is so busy I would love to be on a private lake. I just heard Runyan was stumpy and you could get into trouble in a few spots. Just curious. Starting my research early!

I love it. It's definitely my favorite in the area. It usually has calm water at anytime except for memorial day, labor day, and the fourth. I've been there 18 years and never had a single stump issue. There are three sandbars that you don't wanna run into but they are marked by buoys and easy to keep clear of. It is plenty deep so there is no problem with surfing as long as you avoid the sandbars. It also has a ski course that is in for as long as possible.

My favorite part (besides the watersports) is the island. There are a few events throughout the summer including lobsterfest, a night with a live band, the fishing contest, and my favorite, the hot dog roast!

Let me know if you ever take a look around I'd love to show ya what to look out for

I now have a mastercraft x2. Previous boat a 04 Malibu VLX.

I live on the southside of the lake, so if you ever cruise around and see an X2, that's me. :D

How is lake oakland? Now that I live on the lake, I never venture to other lakes sadly. I've hit up Orchard, Cass, Upper Straits, Elizabeth, Lake Orion, Lake Vorhies lakes in the past, but now I am lazy and stay home :)

Just like that one, except the top deck is white, and the rear x2 is red isnt of white.

There are a couple mastercraft wakeboats on our lake now. (outside of the slew of MC ski boats).

I know of my X2, the newer X2 with the power tower, the navy blue 07+ x1, the blue/black 04 era X2.

Thought I would introduce myself in this thread since there has been some chatter about Sylvan.

I'm about to close on a house on Sylvan/Otter (Canal off of Otter). Now that I have a house, I need to get myself a boat! Hopefully, you'll see another Mastercraft out there on the lake but the supply is pretty slim these days.

I'll be on the lookout for the X2 and the 205V.

I'm not sure. Somewhere centrally located I guess? One of my buddies (a MasterCraft owner) owns a great bar/restaurant, waterfront, with lots of docks. It's called Jerry's pub, on wamplers lake in the irish hills. There's also a state park there with a few great ramps and lots of trailered parking.

I'll drive anywhere for that though, so ideas are welcome.

I'm in Highland on White Lake. Bought my boat @ Action in Fenton. Great dealer.

Hello All, Im in Rochester Hills. I just bought my first Mastercraft from Aaron @ action in Fenton over the past few days.. '96 Prostar 205 LT-1. So pumped to get out on the water. Most of the boating will be done in Traverse City, however in the fall and early spring I'll be down here.

Cheers!

Ok, I'll bite ! how about August 24th for a meeting at the lake mentioned earlier in the thread, a Saturday may be a bit crowded but we can hang out maybe check out Jerry's Pub as the meeting location after the water activities?

ChrisCraftMatt do you want to be the local contact or coordinator? I'll make sure to bring an extra goodie or 2 since our Buckeye Bash is the week before down here (any of you Michigan folk coming down for that?)

I'm pretty sure the 24th will work for me. If there's anything to coordinate, sure, Pm me. There's a park called Hayes st park on wamplers lake that has two very nice launches and plenty of parking. If anybody is planning on staying the night, there's a super 8 motel in Brooklyn, about 5 minutes from wamplers lake. Also in Brooklyn my father owns a couple acres, so if we wanted to camp for the night we could get a bonfire Goin. Plenty of room there to park the boats, too. Let me know if that's something that interests anyone.

chriscraftmatt1976

I've never sold one yet, only given them away to family. I'll give one away at the get together though. I called the local MasterCraft dealer too, as I have a few buddies over there, and they may bring out a boat or two, we'll see. I'm gonna try and carp some tshirts or banners or something to raffle draw for too. I'm sure I can spring for a round of shots at the pub for all non-drivers as well. The guy who owns the bar is a mc owner, so he may give us a round too if we kiss some but! :)

It's like a pole barn, so yes, there's a toilet for the ladies. There's even a shower and sink, but the shower is probably something I wouldn't get in. There's a park on Clark lake about 5 minutes from the barn, so we can jump in there n wash up as needed.

ChriscraftMatt, Dude I applaud your efforts .... your MI brothers and sisters are not helping out ....

I think the mailbox is really cool and we hope to meet you in the future, but it looks like the Labor Day dream is dead for my crew ... we appreciate your offer and we love that you are about boats and guitars!

Anyway ... let's keep the dream alive for a future MI get together, you can count on 1 Buckeye to show up ... but we may need a little more planning or a different venue (even though I love what you proposed).

Not speaking for DoubleD, but I am fairly sure he feels the same way. I think we are headed to Salt Fork a day earlier since this dream is dying quickly.

Again .... ChrisCraftMatt ... thanks for trying .... let's try again when you get some MI support going ....

as far as you MI boaters other than CCM as mentioned ... pick up the pace ... a owners reunion is a heck a lot of fun.
