That was a great find. BTW, how did you come upon this boat? Was it a flood damaged boat or stolen or what?
I like that sound too.I am thinking to open a off-shore mastercraft renovation shop .
I bought to boat without engine and wait to renovate until find a suitable engine.Then I find this STEYR and you see the result ,history of the The boat used as commercial water sports and very badly treated left in the sea and under the sun.Check the 1st thread.

I am looking for a V-Hull mastercraft or similar to make a new boat,PM ,if you know any.

You did a super job, congrats, did some of it to my old ps 190 jear 1991 some years ago, will try to find pictures to share. Although I did not have to replace the motor (ford mustang v8) I have redone the electrics (2 batt. Setup), new gauges (took also faria) and dash (stainless steel, laser cut outs).

You should consider ading a tower. Seems that you have an elastic rope which makes wakeboarding not that easy. Where do you fix that rope (at the pole) and how?

On that river and with that boat you should go for a testdrive with mono as well as barefoot (try to build one of these barefootbooms).

Also, Perfectpass or Zero Off would be a nice add on, a lot more quality of the pull!
