I've been saying that for 7 years. It was easier to go buy another boat.

We had alot of fun in that boat,probably one of the reasons I kept it. I taught both my kids and I don't know how my other kids and a few adults to ski behind it.

I'm sure I could of gotten it for $30 but I just hit the ATM on the way for $40. Since I got the windshield I have not seen another windshield that would work. I researched getting a windshield reproduced and was shocked at how much they wanted.
NICE!
One of the boats I owned was a Baja replica and didnt have a windsheld. I liked driving without one in the way. The split is practical, the shape is perod correct looking.

Thanks for the kind words. I feel fortunate to have found a Taylor windshield that works so well.

As a kid on summer vacation for 2 weeks every year, we lived to go watch the ski show. They had a pair of new Mastercrafts every year going back to about 1975. They always took the windshield off and did not get the swim platform. All the time thinking I would eventually get a Stars and Stripes I would do the same. Funny how much I appreciate both.
