Great thread and a beautiful boat. That blue flake pops!

Is it proper to hand out cigars after the delivery of something as precious as a Mastercraft?

Not anywhere near the factory no, but I emailed them and asked for some pics, and got them. I have a description for each picture as well as far as what they are doing. Loving the pics where they actually pull it out of the mould.

Yup, she's like my third kid.

I've seen the Canadian Flake out on the lake in the sun, it's awesome awesome! Plus the flake doesnt seem to scuff or scratch either.

Who are the god parents? Great looking boat!

The rear underwater lights, is that the normal position for X25's?

Great looking boat. Nothing better then getting the photos if you cant be there in person. Canadian Blueflake all the way.
Phil is the IT guy at MC and he has been great to work with with my next project boat.

Not that I have a knowing eye for these things... however if you look at the photo two above the one you pointed out you can see the rear end of that XStar and it appears as though its a previous generation Xstar by is squared off rear end. I would love to see a new Xstar with a 4pt tower though....

And to the original poster.... WOW what a boat! Congrats to you sir, she is a beauty!

^ What he said. That is an older star.

Good Eye....... That is not where they were on my '11 or '12. They were mounted lower, beside the exhaust outlets. That being said, I don't think it will make much difference.

Well at least with this new baby he will not be getting up in the middle of the night to feed her. Who knows. Maybe he will...

I am building a new house and have a garage bay just for her, 30' long with a 10'x9' door, and a 12' Mastercraft Banner. So she'll have her own bedroom, will spend the winters with me, and yes, will require daily attention.

Noticed that the swim platform brackets appear to be anodised black.. cool.

Ok...

So what's it doing there?

Nick911

Built-in sound system and HDTV yes. It's attached to house so no need for bathroom. Wet bar? I do keep a bar fridge in there.

I have visited the factory twice. Both times, they had an older boat, or two, there. They said that sometimes a boat will come back to the factory if it needs a major repair. One of the boats, that I saw, was in there because the tower got ripped off going through a low underpass..... things like that...
