The ebay ad say trailer has manual brakes, I wonder how that works? I guess it comes with a anchor you throw out at a stoplight.

Reminds me of the motor oil commercial on Speed with the car dragging the anchor!

Depends on how fast you be going, 55mph is 1/4 mile ahead, 6 mph and you throw out the anchor and it goes into the car next to you, knocking out the dude talking on the cell phone, reading the WSJ, eating a Double Cheeburga, Chip, and a drankin' a Pessi!

Remember SNL with John B and Dan A in the cafe, Cheeburga, Cheeburga, Cheeburga, Chip, Chip, Chip, Pessi, Pessi, Pessi? :D

I footed behind one of these in Winter Haven last year (owned by a Colorado transplant who has since sold it I think). Awesome hole shot as you say and really nice, smooth, trick curl. Table looked a little rough, though.

My brother has the 1984 version of this boat. Hole shot, top end, and everything speed related blows my 86 away. But, this boat takes up the whole river turning around to pick a person up. The boat is made for straight runs for sure.

I don't think MC has really has a boat like that truck. It is more like speaking of a Century Resorter than a direct competitor. I don't think CC gave it up because it was killing our sales either. I thought it was terminated in the early to mid 90's. ICBW if it is actually still in their line! :confused: Let sleeping dogs lie..... :uglyhamme

A guy on my lake has one of those. Not sure what year it is but his is a V-Drive Barefoot Nautique with the 454.

That boat sounds awesome out on the lake!!

That boat was on Lake Mohawk, I ski there a few times a year.

Sweet private lake.
