Eric is all class, no matter what he's selling. It's unfortunate for all that it isn't MC anymore, but that wasn't his call.

We are actually going to have Tige at the show? I'm shocked. Seems like we will have more inboards than we have had in recent years. We usually only get the big 3 + Skiers Choice. I think we had Epic 1 year and Centurion 1 year, but that was awhile ago...like 06 or 07. I'm guessing Malibu will be represented by Munson? They usually have a custom VLX every year too.

Interesting that MC's booth is bigger than Sea Ray's. Wonder how that happened?

Is Skipper Buds carrying Tige now? Seems they had some new ones outside there early fall. I drive by every day on my way home from work.

Yes skipper buds now has Tige and dropped moomba supra I beleive.

I also believe searay has a few booths IIRC. One for their runabouts and one for the cruisers?

Money talks and the exhibit fees ain't getting any cheaper.

I will only say this.....the fact you are shocked Tige will be there is just the beginning. Wait til you see the price tags Skipper's is asking for those boats. 60 k for an optioned 20ftr. Msrp is 80ish. Drove the RZTR Good stock wakenoard wake. Massive stock surf wake.....I mean massive. Has to be the best 20 ft surf boat out there. Check em out........while their hull and performance was awesome its like the forgot about interior.......no drivers armrest.



MM CREW??????
Midwest Militia? Been a long time since we put the band back together. Hahahaha.
