what is the first year for computer mastercrafts?

When was the first year that Mastercraft went to computerized Boats, and all the electronic sensors?

thanks, I don't want anything to do with those computer boats, I'll stick with the old school boats, so I can work on them.
Thanks again, I thought it would be over 93 or 94, I have a 91.

With a little bit of reading and learning you can work on the “computer” boats. lawl

I've found EFI to be worth any down side you could possibly have with the electronics involved with the system. I do understand the concern but the system is near bulletproof. While I agree with Tim on the ability to repair the system with some education scanners for our systems are not cheap which has always been the deterrent to self diagnosis. Where I get nervous is with the early Medallion gauge systems. We now have forums with pretty darn good step by step instructions to replace these flawed systems but it's still a PITA and you end up without MasterCraft labeled gauges (which BTW is a small price to pay for gauges that actually work).

Where I believe things really will get dicey one day is with the 08 and newer boats with the BIG display and all the follow on systems from there. 2012 seems to be the low bar for electronics in MasterCrafts but you can always find people having problems with their systems of one sort or another up to present day. The adage that electricity and water don't mix still holds true.

I Do not want a computer Boat, I do not need a computer boat.
My 2003 truck is enough for me

I hate to break it to you but your 2003 truck has several "computers" you have to go back before about 1983

I thought I was old..... but I must still be too young. I find the “computer” multi port fuel injected GM V8s to be much easier to work on and deal with, than the old carb engines. They are way too fussy, and have too many little issues all the time.

It’s all in what you have learned about. I’m glad I’m familiar with EFI systems, and electronic ignition systems. They are 10x more reliable, and I don’t know the first thing about doing a proper carb tune...... unless it was a snowmobile engine
