I'd say he's being honest about it (and maybe venting a little). I'd rather buy one that I knew "everything" about than one that the owner knew very little about or was tight lipped regarding problems.
I had to pry all that type of info out of the PO of my X2 and honestly it turned me off, but I gambled on the extremely low hrs it had and got lucky. COulda had low hrs because it spent it's life in the shop, but turns out it really just wasn't used much.

I wouldnt ever sell a boat knowing it was a piece of "crap". Mastercraft is doing everything in their power to make my boat how it should have been when we bought it. props to them, and MAJOR props to TX Mastercraft. Hopefully this is the last time it goes back to the shop. dealing with them reminds me why we bought a Mastercraft.

Aric,

I don't think MPLV is being unfair in his comments. I'm reading this thread the EXACT same way he is. Also, I'm either lazy or blind, as I read the whole thread again and cannot see the indication that the boat isn't still for sale

I said "i will probably end up making mastercraft make things right"
and a few posts later, i talk about how they are going to. the boat isn't for sale anymore, and you don't see me going around calling other people's boats a sac of crap when something is wrong with it. I think it is just common courtesy?

My apologies for getting involved in this ruckus. It is absolutely none of my business. Hope that the boat gets completely fixed and that you get more years of enjoyment out of it.

hmmm... I could baby sit your boat while you are selling it...make you room for your new boat...to accommodation ya'. What did you have in mind.

The biggest issue I have is matching color without being there... so if you don't mind the colors I come up with I can consider it.... PM me.
