I think that might look a little out of place. When I was looking at boats I looked at the MC (and every other inboard out there) and it was just too much money for a fresh out of college newly married guy. I paid $12,500 for this brand new and it has been a great boat. I still remember the days when you would go to a lake and people would ask me about it because the inboards were a very rare breed back then. Just a little over 2600 hours and it still runs like it was new. The bad thing is that I am putting about as much as the boat is worth into this refurb but if I get another 19 years out of it I'm happy.

My first ski boat was an 88 Ski Centurion, many moons ago. Looks like your doing a great job refurbishing yours.

Nice winter project Skibum. I'm sure will you get another 19 years of enjoyment out of your boat. 2600 hours in 19 years is a lot of good times.

Nice job. I have logged many hours behind a Ski Centurion back in the day. It was a good boat for barefooting.

I like your storage idea under the jump seat, might have to rebuild mine to include the extra space. Looks like a nice place to store the extra PFD!

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Well Phase two complete. Just got it back from having the custom tower mounted. It turned out like I wanted not too tall for the boat. Phase 3 and 4 coming up. Stereo upgrade and new bimini (fill holes left from the removal of the old bimini). I will be glad when the hemoraging of funds comes to and end. Here are couple of pics.
