Real Mastercraft

After reading this goof balls posts about "real Mastercraft " owners and people that sport the sticker and shirt but only own a vintage Mastercraft , it got me thinking. I almost feel the opposite. To me the real " Mastercraft " owners and the ones that should sport the sticker are those with the slalom boats. To me Mastercraft has always been and will be a slalom boat, regardless of how many wake boats they produce and sell now. Hopefully they never lose sight of their heritage. Those who own the wakeboard boats should have to say "x series Mastercraft"! That way I know who is a purist water skier and who is the new generation wakeboarder.

Thoughts.

Agree, 110%. However, I don't frown on my TT brothers & sisters for them owning a V-Drive or X Boat.... Can't we all just get along??

What about the "hybrid posers" like me who take a perfectly good, flat wake producing ski boat and put a tower on it, and add a bunch of ballast? Guess either I am confused or stuck somewhere in between....

And I must clarify, my "poser" comment was simply making more fun of that dumb sh*t from a couple of days ago that we all have had so much fun razzing....The bottom line is we all enjoy being out on the open water enjoying a multitude of various watersports, and we are fortunate enough to have the best product available...whether back in 1978 or 2013.

Real MC owner here.....4 MC's since 1994.

Somedays I like to ski or barefoot, somedays I like to wakeboard or wakesurf.
Currently a 2-boat owner....'93 Prostar Limited and '05 X-star.

So Rod do I qualify as a "Real Mastercraft owner"?
