Newbie

I guess I should introduce myself. I tripped on to this site a few weeks ago, and have spent quite a bit of time reading the various threads. I really appreciate being able to tap into all of your experience with Mastercrafts.
I learned to ski in 1977 behind a '72 (if I remember correctly), then spent 20 years wishing I could afford a MC. Around 1992 I found an '86 (PS, 351) needing some TLC, fixed it up, and had it for 3 years, then stumbled on an '88 (351, 1:1) which had been sitting in a garage for a few years, basically stole it, and used it until 1994, when the new MC dealer in Reno offered me a deal I couldn't refuse on a '95 (PS, 350, 275hp). Been happily skiing behind it ever since. Pics to follow.
Keep up the good dialogue; I've learned a lot from you guys.

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.

Thanks, guys. Andre, to answer your question, I've skied MMMMMarch through NNNNNovemberrr. Dry suits help. I remember one November day on Pyramid Lake where we skied 10-15 miles (until we couldn't hold on any longer) on glass. That's not the norm, though. Usually May through October, if you don't mind cold air. Most of our lakes are 4000-6000 feet ASL, so hp and powerslots are your friend.
