Untill I joined this forum I didn't even know Mastercraft made a v-drive or x boat

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.

So Rod do I qualify as a "Real Mastercraft owner"?
Sounds like the best of both worlds to me.

realmastercraft is just an idiot who likes to get people all upset, and these couple of threads proves he's very good at it. What you do with your boat is entirely up to the owner, and if it's a Mastercraft of any age or style, you are a real Mastercraft owner. Don't give this jerk the satisfaction of posting on his threads.

Why would one of us be better than the other. I bought the best boat that I could for what I wanted to do with my family. Just because skiing has been around longer doesn't make it better than the board sports. I'm tied of you so called "purists". Go find a water ski forum, this is for MasterCraft boat owners.

It's been wakeboarding and surfing that have kept the inboard market alive for the past 10 years. Like it or not the newer generations like standing sideways and doing jumps, and are less interested in uncomfortable stances and going really fast. It's the "sideways" movement that saved the snow ski industry too. Oh ya, if MC was only in the business of slalom boats, well I would say they probably wouldn't still be in business.

With all that said I have the upmost respect for Slalom skiers and the skills they have. It's a tough sport and takes a lot of practice. I got to really try it for the first time this past summer and it was much more fun then I expected. I plan to definitley do more and get a ski but you won't see me giving up wakeboarding anytime soon.
I disagree that wakeboarding and surfing have kept the inboard market alive. What those activites have done has caused the inboard market to grow exponentially. Slalom skiers still need a slalom boat. I think MC would still be in business without wakeboarding/surfing, but it would be like the old days...small company with one, maybe two or three by now, models to choose from.

I agree with all of you. Do what you do ! It's your money , your boat. Do what you please!

Just because your boat cost 100k or 9 k doesn't make you less of a Mastercraft owner.

Mastercaft started out as a waterski boat , so no reason to downplay those who don't have the xstar ,x25 or whatever.

It's an awesome boat weather it's old or not. And I wish I could find one to call my own.

I just feel like the slalom boat owners that built this company to what it is today are truly worthy of sporting he badge in their trucks or what have you.

The rest of you realize where the it came from !

Why is ther always that gap between skiers and boarders???
Why can't we just live togehter??

In the waterski club where i'm member of we don't have this problem everyone loves everyone, no matter boarder, skier, barfoter or anything else.
And we are the only v-drive in there all the athors are z-drive and they ski and board as well.

So I've been around Mastercrafts my entire life.. was my dads spotter in the boat while he did tournament slalom 2 days before I was born.. We moved from 190's to 205's to a 205v, then to our current x 15. Go tell Zane he didn't build the company because he wake boards. Go tell rusty to stop nailing 1080s and further repping the Mastercraft name. To say that slalom skiers are the only ones who deserve to sport stickers are slalom skiers is rather an elitist statement in my mind. I know where the company built its roots on skiing, but just because you ski doesn't make you any more of a Mastercraft enthusiast! WE ARE ALL HERE BECAUSE WE LOVE MASTERCRAFT BOATS!! Im going to sport Mastercraft stickers on all my vehicles.. my girlfriend has a pink Mastercraft sticker on her car too! So if Mastercraft stuck to their roots, and only made slalom boats, they would be bankrupt and long gone! I cant believe some douchebag made us all so pissed off. I'm glad he bought a malibu! at least he's not here fouling up our website!
