How does that protect the seller? I'd never mail title until funds were in my account.

Good explanation Doug.

I think that 83 was the year they eliminated the wood stringers, but at some point during the model year, not necessarily from the first production slot. You may find an 83 with wood stringers is...

Me too. '91 - '94 is the ticket for you. IIRC, not all '93's had fuel injection. But I'd look for either a '93 stars and stripes or limited edition if I were looking for an older boat.

I think a lot has to do with what length line you are skiing. 91 - 94 can't be beat for 15 and 22. 95 - 97 was considered an improvement by some over 91 - 94. A little firmer, but less spray at...

Chine lock didn't happen on the prostars until the 98 model year. I've never heard of a vibration issue. You may want to read this thread. http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=29236

Welcome to the forum.

MC has had some less than desirable reactions to warranty items, but I'd like to hear the other side of the story. But we really can't do that here.

Yup, went to college, and high school. But Wedding Crashers certainly made that into a mainstream joke. Then again I use a lot of quotes from Old School, Wedding Crashers, Starsky and Hutch etc.

And I thought the boat was named after that Vince Vaughn line in Wedding Crashers. Sorry to read about that poor passenger's finger.

Boy these new models are coming up quick. I guess the days of the word leaking a year or so in advance are gone. That's a good thing, not a complaint.

I can't see how anyone would pay much more than $7K. For that if I were you I'd consider keeping it. The threshold of diminished returns in an old mc is reached quickly.

I can't believe how the number of hours freaks people out. I'd average 120/ year when I was boating the way I wanted to. Actually if I were boating the way I wanted to it would have been over 150.

Most here will always recommend a compression check. Personally if you know the ownership history and it was maintained by the dealer you are buying from, I wouldn't worry.
