I know this is an old thread but I am noticing the same thing. I cannot plane the boat even at 30 mph. Glad this is my friends boat and not mine. I could never own this Tristar because of this lack in design on Mastercraft's part.

I'm not sure how you cannot be on plane at 30mph.
Of course, as previously mentioned being on plane in an inboard is definitely different than a stern drive. Is this different than other MasterCrafts or inboards you've been on?

I've been on other MC models and they are just fine for me. This Tristar is something else.

Please stop blaming a design flaw on a boat that you don't even own. You don't like the boat. Don't buy it. End of story. So many variables with a 25 year old boat in the first place.

We are doing a photo shoot today with a pro from LA today and some tubers. I will take a video of the boat from shore and upload to Youtube for all to comment on. Maybe I'm the one smoking crack LOL.

We didn't get a chance to take a profile shot of the boat attempting plane but I did use a digital protractor inside the boat using the top of the hull lip as a reference plane. Sitting idle the boat was at 0 degrees. At 29-30 mph it is 10 degrees nose up. Taking into account the length of the boat and the angle of incidence that would put the nose fairly high to obstruct vision without a booster seat. What angle do you guys get?
