I nabbed my '00 230VRS 'cause it's what I could afford at the time (ie right before the great price tumble of '08/'09). Since I missed out on the >$30K X-30s, I'm gonna upgrade my family wagon as funds permit and wring the glass off the hull over the next few years. Already upgraded the stereo, amp, and speakers. Did some carpet reinstallation, new rudder cable, some trailer stuff, and a couple more odds and ends.
Next up I think the MariStar decals on the side are going bye-bye in favor of the naked look or maybe I'll replace 'em with some ProStar-style MasterCraft decals. I'm gonna hold out for a New Dimension tower rather than a cheaper universal. Once the tower is in I'll look into some V-drive, ski locker, and bow sacs with some good aftermarket pumps.
Been a while since I started this thread off and figured I'd update. Got the factory Zero Flex tower installed and promptly towed it out to Havasu. I did the 'ol ratchet strap trick to minimize tower flex on the ride out since the backing plate filler was only about 30 hours old.
I have a red MasterCraft bimini but the factory ones are kinda small and I have a big family. To keep my little kids and wife who sunburns quickly out of the Arizona summer sun I'm looking at new extended bimini options, but 'till then I made my old aftermarket black one work.
