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.

Very carefully!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!And good springs! Bathump, Bathump, Bathump! The trick is getting it on it's side to go thru the front door!

I only use the stairs when I forget to open the garage and basement doors!

We have a split foyer, so same trick to park in the living room as the basement, 8 steps up to livingroom from the front door or 8 steps down to the basement from the front door. I want to keep it in the bedroom, but spouce says, "NO WAY, there is a place for everything, cause we use the boat enough at the lake, I need a change of scenery"! If ya know what I mean!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you haven't seen the rig, boat and tow vehicle, it is truly a sight to behold in person.

Thank you very much!
It's the love for Mastercraft and the fellowship with our Mastercraft owners that make it all worth while!
