Not a mastercraft, but seems like a sweet deal for the barefooters out there. Not too bad for slalom, though the platform leaves room for improvement.

Mike, you just need what I have found. My wife refers to them as friends who are as stupid as me in the same way.

We usually keep running through November, and often December weather permitting. ...

Now I will need a new keyboard. Worth the laugh though, as long as she's ok. This is the type of thing that means kids are wearing helmets when they board with me.

The bow hatch had me convinced 24'. A 21' means my comments about engine, wake etc. are all nonissues. I still wouldn't try cutting it up if you're not 100% sure. Good looking boat.

x2 on a MC240 24' I wouldn't consider tearing apart the bow unless you feel sure you're going to reinforce it in a manner that will hold together at least as strong. The bow is structural and keeps...

Not direct experience with a 197, but ballast in that locker usually leads to damage on other boats in my experience. Bags next to the dog house will also handle better than being way stern heavy.

You will likely find some joy in the mastercraft project part 2. Lots of overlap with teamtalk.

Might be a reasonable step to take and not break the bank.

You on the mastercraft project? If so I would check with Dan Jaworski about who did the work on his restoration . I've seen it and the quality is amazing. He is also in WI.

What about a place in Lexington, and a houseboat on Cumberland? Why not be ON the water, with no extra property taxes? Cumberland was nicer that Herrington by a stretch in my experience.
