Brand new to the forum and to the MC family. I just put a deposit on a 2001 PS 209. One owner boat that has really been babied. I was mainly looking for a tubing, skiing and beginner wake boat for my wife and 2 daughters. Based on my research, I think I've made a great choice. I'd love your thoughts about this boat as well. Thanks!

Should be a great all around boat. You'll learn on here though that we need pictures! Congrats on the new boat.

Yes went tuesday. you will need an oil pressure gauge and Maybe a temp as well.. boat is clean just a ton of pitting on the tower and the bottom needs stain cleaner from the river. speakers work but 3-4 of the cones are bad.. feel free to call me if you havent put eyes on it send me a pm

Tried to PM you but said you had chosen not to receive PM's? Maybe something screwed up on my end but I'm not sure? PM me if you can and I'll respond.
Thanks

Another 2001 MC209 owner here. Great all around boat. Does everything good. Nice slalom wake, wakeboarding is great from the tower and bit of ballast and lots of storage. Love having room for 8+ people comfortably.

Nothing better than a V8 in the middle of your boat..........
