So a 2 year old boat. Most 14's weren't used all of 13, so I would think that would depreciate it more. I'd stick with hours slightly higher than norm. It's early in the boat's life no matter how...

After years of casual tricking I determined that the ski made no difference. I sucked on all of them. ;-)

Nice looking boat. If I can ask what rack are you running? Looks great. Love the flite pipe. If buyer isn't excited about the rack let me know.

It's never going to be a wake boat, but if it's like my S&S, a 750 where the rear seat goes and 400 each side of the dog house will make it reasonable enough for most. A better bet is to make...

For the rain I figured a cover should keep it out. The waves breaking over the bow are exactly what I would figure driving at a bow-high speed could help with.
You'd likely have to remove and...

I'd say the second bilge is right. You could alternately just drive 9+ mph to keep the bow high so water doesn't come in there, but that isn't always practical. It would be a project for sure, but...

Don't know about that, but the step-father-in-law is an engineer. He was involved with the company that made these for a while. They're a ton of fun.

Reviving an old thread. I went through re-attaching after a fuel leak recently and monkeyed with it for some time to get it just right. If it ever comes around again, I'd love to know if you have a...

It takes a LOT of space. A good deal of customization of the engine cover, strut, drive shaft etc. I've seen it in progress, pics of the engine cover are on FB on the MasterCraft Project.
