Here is my 12 WTT #42 this year I think I had the same # last year. This year I took the drive from Colorado to Vonore and picked it up at the factory. Got to see all the guys had lunch if Parker Stair and Brenda Jones. Got to see what was going in engineering and R&D. Checked out some new things that may be coming and added my .02 worth.
The reason the numbers go to 125 this year on the WTT's is because that is the world wide number they build. Will post more pic's after we clean it up.

FYI from Denver to Vonore TN. is 21 hours one way about 2800 miles round trip and 3 days

And no that is not a Mastercraft Trailer it is a Boat Mate which are made in Marysville just down the road from the Mastercraft Factory

That's a rank looking boat. Congrats.

Very nice boat. Looks great!

Those trailer wheels look like the tab washers used to hold a prop nut. I think they look cool though.

that is simply beautiful .. wow ... it could only look better on my dock!

I'm curious about the strap shown in your first pic that holds up the cover posts. I have a 2006 PS197 with a custom cover and am intrigued by this strap as it would appear to help keep the cover nice and tight. By the way I entertained my high school aged nephews from Centennial, CO this summer for a week on a lake in Wiscosin so if you happen drive by them enroute to the resevoir they are probably going to stalk you as I beleive I have successfully hooked them on skiing and Mastercraft boats!

I think that boat would actually hurt my buoy count ..... I would keep my eyes on that sweet boat instead of the course .... nice ride ... looks great .....

I do hope they threw in a swim platform for you ;)

That strap and post comes with the shipping cover and also a second set for the normal cover. They come for the bow, pylon area and rear seat area. Really a sweet setup for extended periods of time where the boat will be stored with the cover on.

I'll have an extra set first part of January that you can have if you want them.

Yes, I'm definitely interested! If you decide to part with them I can send you my UPS account number and you can sent them to me or if you want to drop them off at my brother in law's house in Centennial (Paul Gillett @ 8575 E. Kettle Ave.) that will work too, but only if convenient for you. My in-laws live in Aurora, my mom lives in Edwards and my sister lives in Eagle so needless to say I'm a frequent vistor to Colorado during the winter to ski on 2 skis instead of 1 ski. My wife and I graduated from Colorado College in 1981. The pay it forward ethic works on this board. Earlier this year I donated a very nearly new car cover for VW to TT member in Florida! Thanks!

Its a very sexy looking boat.

12-11-2011, 04:52 PM
Hey Paul, No problem as soon as I get my new 2012 WTT I'll send them to you. I live in Washington State. Cheers

12-12-2011, 01:46 PM
Incredible red metal flake! Just love the look of the boat......congrats Jeff!

Very Nice Boat! Congrats....

Here is my 12 WTT #42

I'm in love! Maybe this will be the year I'm in a spot I can take it off your hands at the end of the year.

Our new 2012 197, 5.7, Power slot, buddy balast, hotwater shower, heater, seat heaters and stereo. Can't wait to get it cleaned up and ski behind it tomorrow. :D

Sullivan, I saw the truck carrying 2 MC's East on I-84 mid-morning. I assume they dropped yours off and they were headed to another dealer!

Yep, that was it. Went and saw it this afternoon. This is a bad looking boat, can't wait to see it in the sun.
