It's a beautiful thing! I like to think of them as the "muscle car" of ski boats. I just love pulling into the cove or up to the dock and hearing that rumble! To ski behind one at dawn patrol or sunset.... Nothing better (IMO).

The add wasn't very good, didn't tell anything about the boat. I had saved one other photo which shows some new looking vinyl. I think it was listed for $4,000.

The dream one day would be to have a lake house with 2 slot lift. One for the X-star wake tug, one for the classic S&S for Sunday Sunset cruise / ski set.
(Replacing the 190 with an S&S would be a tough decision though.)

Based on the pics, that seems like a steal.

I know. I'm hoping someone pipes up and say's "I bought it, best 4 grand (or less) I've ever spent".

1 1/8 is the correct shaft size.
