This boat is pretty well priced at 7k. I would start at 5k cash. Cash in hand might help. And I would only purchase this boat if slalom was my sport. Or if I was a beginning wakeboarder. The wake is...

I skied at Firebird, Phoenix area a while. Check the website. Nothing in Sedona. Otherwise it's 5am and maybe 1 good hour for slalom. Firebird is private, and like Buchli, busy.

I just had my platform redone. All new wood in places. Better than new. I found the 3 step Star Brite to be the best. Just go light on the oil and let it soak in after wiping it down. If you go...

I just wish there were public lakes in AZ that had areas with a slalom course, and traffic restrictions. Maybe slalom would make a comeback. Otherwise, it's either an expensive home and HOA to get...

My Stars and Stripes had much less short line spray than another 93 on our lake. It had a slot, nine doesn't. I paid 14k with 300 hours 14 years ago. No regrets.

Did it once. Never again. Too crowded. Just obey the law, and keep alert. Some amazing scenery to be viewed.

The 91-94 Pro Star 190 is the best. The 2000 will be a big wake compared to the 88 at 15-22 off. Not so much at shortline. If you ski behind a well tuned 91-94 you will not be disappointed.

I went from a Concept to a V and did pretty well. The V gets you out of the water much better. As will a good boat driver. High end skis are for high end skiers. I was a 32 mph 15 off hack at a ski...

MC trailer in salt? It is probably toast, or on it's way. Take a small hammer and ping test the trailer. Check compression, take a riser apart, and see how much corrosion is in there. If you are a...

Thanks! Got it coming from Amazon for $90. Cheaper than I thought. I called Taco and they confirmed your part number. They suggested heat, soap and water, and wooden mallet to install a new one.

My 93 was always the PB boat. (Personal best). I found it more forgiving and easier to ski behind than any new boat. But I ski at 15 off 30 or 32 mph. My form is pretty good, but if it were perfect,...
