I noticed the high bidder is rstev234.
We used to have an rsteve on this board that was pretty knowledgeable. Anyone know what happened to him? Same person maybe?

The bottom line is that he gets more hits for the auction by having Mastercraft in the title.

Your right Doug!
I'm sorry, but something like that just gripes the devil out of me. I don't think that guys parents had any kids that lived!

That's why he has it in the title. Wo searches out American Skiers, I didn't even think they existed anymore.

The funniest part of the listing is the follwoing sentence.....
"THIS BOAT HAS THE FACTORY UPGRADED ENGINE WITH OVER 300 HORSE POWER. IT WILL FLAT GET WITH THE PROGRAM."

OK, what is "THE PROGRAM"? :purplaugh

"IT ALSO HAS THE REAR SEAT WHICH WAS NOT STANDARD."


Did you want seats in your boat... Well... Thats going to cost extra :uglyhamme

you'll be glad you have it when a shortline skier snaps the rope back at you.

.......because when the boat "GETS WITH THE PROGRAM" and the guy skiing hits that wake...he's going to loose the handle!

Handle pops can be dangerous. I've dodged a couple for sure, even with my kickback protector (and with only a 15 off skier).

That mosquito net looks like a much smaller version of MC's way of addressing the problem several years back.

Is the Safe-T top still an option?

Agreed!
I've been around an older model (mid-late 80's) and have to say the beast was solid and rode fairly well in a chop.

pretty funny.... well guys, you gotta do what you gotta do if you want to sell a boat like that.

I've skied behind one. It was a great boat. I think it's too bad the company didn't make it.

I don't know why there are so many rips on the hull. The boat skis. And I think they're still making some. Not in very large numbers.

If I were to run a boat ad on ebay it'd have mastercraft, ski nautique, moomba and wakeboard, fish, ski, etc. in the title, as much as I can fit. It'd be clear that what i was selling was labeled correctly, but I'd aim for hits.

They are actually nice boats, and still in production. They also make a wakeboard boat called an Eagle Air. I'll make you a heck of a deal on one!....Don't ask, unless you are interested that is.
