Ok, thanks!!

So, again, anyone, please excuse my extreme gnorance. Answers/confirmations to the following questions/assumptions are surely obvious to everyone on TeamTalk, but I'm a true newbie to ski-boating...

Skiing - low or minimal wake desired?

Wakeboarding - that's where you're on your knees and strapped to a short surfboard, and high or max. wake is desired to do tricks/flips?

Surfing - you twist, turn and hop while riding the top of the water curled up on your back (no board/ski of any kind)? Max. wake is desired to do tricks/flips?

Thanks in advance for anyone that's willing to answer/confirm what may be obvious to everyone but me.

Well, folks, I'm excited to announce that I'm finally a Mastercraft Owner!! Found a '95 Maristar 200 VRS 275 HP EFI in excellent condition and only 532 hours. The only thing the mechanic said it needs is a new blower. It's making noises, and he said most likely that the motor bearings are shot.

Thanks again to everyone who responded to my questions. Not having owned a ski boat before, I am sincerely grateful for all the comments, suggestions and opinions I received. It was a huge help!

That said, I have another question...the ski pylon is currently located just to the left and back of the captain's chair, but I've seen where some Maristar's (typically a couple years or so newer) have the ski pylon located directly behind the back bench seat thru a notch in the sun deck. Is relocating the ski pylon to this position an option for my boat (i.e. are their mounting holes/additional floor backing at this location in a '95 Maristar)?
