My family owned a couple shipyards and a naval architecture/engineering firm, to say I have been on boats my entire life is a literal statement!! When I was 6, my parents bought a house on a lake and a 1986 Commander with a 235hp Outboard. Funny thing was, I was probably the only kid that HATED to go to the lake... I always liked the ocean way more. When I was about 10yrs old, I learned to ski.... I was in love immediately!!

I know that feeling!! Our neighbors got the first MC on our lake... it was a 1995 PS 190 with a black hull and turquoise accent (they still have it). I remember them coming over and asking me if I would observe for them (I was in 8th grade, they were just out of college and married). I was sooooooo stoked, so I jumped from our dock onto the swimstep of their boat... ended up falling straight on my arse and embarrassing myself in front of the hottie of a wife!! From that day on, the 1995-1997 PS 190's were the essence of an MC for me. After working for 3 summers as a deckhand on the ferry, I saved up enough money to buy a reposessed 1996 PS 190 Corvette!! I will never forget the first day I put my new MC on the lake and drove by my next door neighbor's house and waved!!!
