You got that right! The weekends are ridiculous! I live less than a mile from the Convention Center, so I will probably go a couple days during the week too... I wanna make sure I do not miss anything!

Sodar, sorry about USC. I could not believe how that game turned out. Oh, yeah, I'm going to the boat show. But, probably on one of those zoo days.

I can not believe it. USC has not lost a game since I started going there! So depressing!! Anyways, if you can you should try and make it up on the weekdays, everything is much more laid back and enjoyable!

Sorry about the game :eek:
You should be proud of your school you had a good run
And the game could have gone either way

Nah, I don't think so. I was just watching a special about the "star car" at the show this year. It is $1.25 million, does 250 mph, comes stock with 1100 hp and gets 10 miles to the gallon. Now that is something work checking out!

Thanks RexDog! You are right, it could have gone either way... needless to say it has been difficult to go to ESPN.com, turn on the news or read the paper!!!

Exactly, I knew it started with a "B", I could not remember exactly what it was though. Sounds pretty sweet, but I doubt it is street legal here in the US.

Actually, it's 1,001 horsepower for the Euro version. There will be a US version, but horsepower will be in the 800--900 range if I recall.

No, that thing is definately ugly, not to mention totally impractical... it has all the horsepower and can not even pull any toys!!!!

David and I go every year. We usually end up there on the weekend. We are currently trying to find a place for Cal Skier in Ventura.(3 possibilities right now!) It will be nice to have another dealer in town. We only have the BU dealer and he has a corner on the market around here. MC could make a killing up here with all the lakes in decent range. B

I was out for my morning run today and had quite a treat. At the stoplight were two shrink wrapped MasterCrafts and a shrink wrapped Nautique, heading to the Staples Center for the show. I tried to catch up to them before they took off to get a better look, but didn't make it. SO the good news is that there will be at least 3 towboats a the LA Boat Show!

Attended the opening day of the Boat Show. Very fun and lots of give-aways. MC has beautiful boats on display. The posters and the CD are worth picking up. Might just have to sell the '93 S&S cuz that new 197 is beautiful...check out Karen Truelove and Freddie Kruger part of the CD. I think I need to have that boat in my garage! B

Guess they never sold at auction. Maybe after the boat show season tour. The bozo kid from the tv show said they are in negotiations for more episodes, but no new ones are planned for now.

Ryan

The PBR boat has a spitoon!!! I don't recall that making on tv. Nice looking boats, but I spotted some carpet issues in the PBR boat just standing from the side.

Ryan

Alright, I'm hooked on the red and black, even the yellow and black.
If you haven't seen my galler, I like black.

I forgot to mention. MC and MB were the only towboat manufacturers that didn't have direct drives.

I forgot to mention. MC and MB were the only towboat manufacturers that didn't have direct drives.

I talked to Mike, the Sales Manager at CS, and he said the no direct drives came because there was not enough room (I call BS!!). California Skier is running a demo day though on the channel in Elsinore and he said to come out and get a pull... might be worth it!!

Ryan
02-07-2006, 05:46 PM
Which Mike, Detmers or Cardoni?
You've got to admit they had more space last year, and that fence limits even further. Shoot, Tige had more floor space. I heard from some nameless source that they only move around 9 DDs a year with only 2-3 cutom ordered, so at least they keep them in stock at the dealership.

I don't know how much those big spots go for. But for comparison sake, a small 500 sq ft spot in the Kentia Accessories hall costs about $1200 (I may have a booth at next year's show). I'm guessing the spot MC had cost at least $10k if all things are equal.

Hi Ryan
What did you think about the show?

I like it, but I saw nothing-new MC look good with a X80
With Twin MCX that is a big boat :eek: :eek:

Did you see this truck from Cobra…nice :headbang:

Sodar
02-07-2006, 09:22 PM
Cardoni... Yeah,I think space is very expensive. Mike said if he was to bring a few DD then it would have cost him $30,000 to be at the show. I am not sure what he paid for the space he had, but either way, its gotta be expensive and I guess they gotta stock what sells!!

I could have spent many more hours there. I took my son, and he got pretty tired. I'm an MC fan, but I'm not as die-hard as some. I like all boats.

Had a bad experience with a CC salesman. This guy went on about all the bad stuff other's say about them on the internet (at least someone's listening) and then countering it...and never answering my question. Then, when I say I'm surprised they put a star on the sides of the new 220, he went of and on about how it isn't a star... until I pointed out the star in their little wakeboard icon. Can't blame CC any dealer can get some bad apples.

One thing that surprised me was in the Supreme 220sp. Where's the arm rest? I never appreciated my throttle position until now.

Anyone going to the Demo Days this weekend? The email I got basically said if you want to ski/ride you'll need to make a private demo appointment another day for how busy they expect to get.

This may be our closest shot at a reunion this year.
...Well, there's always Betsy's.

Thats funny..... I had a bad experience with the CC dealer here too. I wanted to look at their new Hydrogate wake enhancement thing. The guy started goin & couldn't stop. Eventually the owner came over & started goin off too. They would feed me a little crap about the PS being worth $4k or $5k trade-in..... which is just joking. But when the owner started telling me that HO, Jobe, O'Brien, & Liquid Force were all owned by the same company...... well, I had to call my brother to make sure nothing have happened the night before. It just gave me the proof I needed that the guy was full of crap.

Isn't that who built Jesse James boat..??

Sodar
02-02-2007, 10:14 PM
Yeah, John West built it for him, but Jesse sold it about 4 months after he bought to a guy at Folsom Lake. The boat only had 3 hours on the clock and Jesse had never even taken it out!
