upolstery is original jeep seat material, not bad for being 20yrs old...didn't have 303 back then, otherwise would have looked brand new...totally functional and solid...easily could get new skins to make boat in excellent condition, if someone is interested...i just didn't see the need...

the blue with teak just looks so sharp...as you can see the teak has been well taken care of, never did get around to do the 6 coat process with wet-sanding...save that for the next owner!!! :cool:

the upgrade to PerfectPass has made this boat a dream, still amazed at how flat the wake was back in the day...i've still got my bright-eyed classic skier silouette

the interior is all original...my dad had his 85 replaced with new skins when he bought his back in 1995, which is the only drawback on this boat...got a quote on new skins is only $1,100 putting this boat into the $10k price range!!!

Mitch - gotta get you skiin' some buoys on the new accusink course behind the 2005 197 MCX...dock will be finished this weekend, with rain in the forecast skiing can't delay me anymore...need to get my 22' off pass mastered...

thanks, she's too nice of a boat to go to someone who won't take care of her...

picked up a great deal on a 2005 197 MCX and the deal with the wife was only one boat...just no reason we'd ever use two...

touch-n-go sun right now...at least the roads have been dry since this morning...

fortunately i built my new dock to the high water level, but the water is up to the top of the dock boards, though...unbelievable spring...hopefully this isn't one of those noreastah summers where the warmer ocean waters make it Rainforest New England...
