Thread: 1988 correct craft before and after

    Re: 1988 correct craft before and after

    Yes I did end ip getting that far after much effort. But then trying to drag and drop became a huge pain to put into post and I didnt have the option to space them with wording between. And they still went on as thumbnails anyway. I read your post on posting pics but it applied to a computer. I gave up. Thank you for posting them. My pc is down and as such my hands are tied and also why the pics are so crappy as I had to pull them from my fb page. Thanks. Now to find a decent resizing app for phone

    The new clean rub rail really stood out to me on this job. I took the rope off, soaked in bleach mixture, and then inverted it so the outside full of abrasions was inside toward the boat. The little details that really make a difference.

    Nice work! I have spent many hours being drug through slalom courses behind a boat just like that!

    Awesome! I grew up water skiing behind my grandfather's 1981 Ski Tique!

    My buddy has a 2002 196 slalom with python edition. (Big block 430 hp). All I can say is wow. Funnest inboard boat I have ever driven. Flying dock footing starts. Back deeps. Incredible. Barefoot and slalom course guy here. Broke a ski (and ankle) running late into #5 once. I have done quite a few ski boats. Will post some more. It is how I got started in this business. Glad others love slalom boats. These days it's mostly wake board boats

    Great job on that old 2001! Although, I am more of a MasterCraft guy, I always liked the lines of that boat. The 2001 has a pretty good lip at wakeboard speeds too.

    You make the memories come back of failing miserably attempting to barefoot behind one just like that! I knew it was going to hurt when my feet hit the back of my head!! LOL.

    I agree, it is tough to find these older tugs, and I definitely commend you on keeping another one alive! My MC is an 89, and my father just picked up an 81 this May. I still try to ski as often as I can. I prefer the 81, as it has the PowerSlot, and lots of vintage stars and brown metalflake coolness!!

    Don't forget that teak swim platform!

    Again, awesome work!

    Wow that looks great. The wood (Teak?) looks like it stands out and needs attention now. The gel is just slippery wet now. Amazing.
