I see a handful of threads pop up every few days that could be answered by someone @ MC who has access to detailed records and the history of the company. (i.e. how many S&S color combinations were there? What was the asking price of my boat back in '89? etc...)

I'm not thinking it would be a highly paid position, but could be a really cool job and would be a great resource to new buyers and those of us who already love the brand :)

So, when will we see the job opening for MasterCraft Historian?

The problem with that is through the changing of owners, many of the records were not kept.

Paul does seem to know everything stars & stripes and earlier.

I've thought for a long time that there should be a comprehensive history thread. Could be a great project as we are closing in on 50. But as Pete said, a lot of records were lost or disposed of.

Truly a shame...they should hold a contest: the biggest MC fan wins a year's salary to travel around and meet with owners, old pro team members, etc. and make a History of MasterCraft coffee table book!

They offered one a few years back that I bought. Not that good of a book. Would have expected more homage paid to the old SS tugs and Barefoot 200s

I have a 40TH Anniversary Hardcover book. Found it cheap on EBay. Wish that it covered more of the models through the years though.

A Mastercraft historian would be as useful as a normal historian! lol. I think Zane and the mc reps do a great job as being able to answer most of the questions that you can throw at them at boat shows or MC events.
