yup...I enjoy working on mine as much as being towed by her...

you're so right about the $120 per hour plus towing it there..and then towing it back...

I was telling someone just the other day that working on the boat was the biggest pleasure. Skiing is secondary for me. I have always enjoyed slalom and barefoot but over the years, working on these simpler models has grown on me as well...

Yeah - I am 52...the boat has about 562 hours on it... TBI is really the only technology on my boat. I would put perfect pass on her if I did not have 2 going to college..... I want to keep her and refit the interior with new textiles after my kids graduate..the new vinyl fabrics are extremely rich looking

Having the MC safety and conveniently sitting in the garage is pretty sweet. Get to look at daily as I come and go about my business and the next project is always sitting there ready to go.
