Wine and Mastercraft

You can buy wine at $5.00 per bottle and sometimes it is OK. You get into the $30 plus and it is special, but it takes time to appreciate. At $100/bottle, it is narvana. I have owned Mastercrafts (4) since 2000. Each one was huge leaps above their replacement. I just walked around my 2014 X-10 for the first time and was blown away. The build quality was awesome...but the features...they are incredible. The price of these rigs is crazy...but when you add up the features over my 2006, they are working cheap. The cost of ownership of my 2006 was very reasonable after I sold it. I hope my 2014 will be the same. In any case, you have to own some of these boats to appreciate what they are doing today. For those on the fence, this is a great company with a great product. Like a good bottle of wine, sometimes you have to develop your taste buds to appreciate...but I could not be happier with the final product and the company that produced it!!!

I was actually trying to decide between Tahoe and Bayliner, but chose the latter because it seems to be the favorite "punching bag" on this site.
