i agree, goofy tower.. erk you need to tell the folks at mc to either go back to the old style or redesign a tower for the 197. that style looks good on all the other boat besides the 197..

Black is beautiful! But I do think the old tower is better lookin.

The black is nice Footin, but I am a sucker for red and white. I just love that combo. THat tower HAS GOT to go! No towers on a ski boat, thank you. oh yea, close that bow up too and remove all that seating up there :noface:

Mini Towers look waaay better than the regular towers on those boats.

Ric
05-25-2006, 05:34 PM
will ya throw in an 06 rudder on the dealio?

Footin
05-25-2006, 05:41 PM

I totally agree..

Though, for my money I'd have to get a 209 for more space.. :headbang:

Have you driven it with the 06 rudder? I asked about adding it to the 04 yesterday and it was not clear if it added value to a 197. I was under the impression that it did, but have not driven an 06.

Different strokes. Closed bow usually means a dedicated ski only boat and is not conducive to a family or guests... just my four nickels

closed bow usually means keep your tubes and crap outta my boat.

and so they do, that way the I/O gets that business.

Can you bungee jump from it? I think it looks tall on a trailer, but very functional on the water - no bumping your head.

Mari, its all good man! different strokes. For me, a closed bow is the sniznit! I dont have a family or guests when I ski, just a driver, and a few skiers, or a spotter. I like the storage room under the bow to store skis, pfd's, wetsuits, dry clothes, etc.... I just dig "old school" ski boats. I love 190's!!! :D

That is a good question. Maybe he can't post it on here for some reason?

bcampbe7
05-26-2006, 03:35 PM
I believe it is MC's policy that dealers can only post MSRP for new boats.

I don't see why he couldn't tell you over the phone or email though the territory rules may come into play here... :confused:

And that's why the price is so hard to get. Time wasters.

Ahh, but if the price was just laid out up front then the salesmen wouldn't have to waste their time with the curious...

erk, can you at least post the price of a wash and wax job on my boat? That wouldn't be improper
