Does anybody know about these? I have heard that they use another boats molds. Does it throw up a decent wake when weighted?

I've seen one quite a bit here at our lake, Looks a lot like late '80s- early '90s Malibu skier. The guys that have it only slalom and barefoot, so i don't know about the wake.

I rode behind a mid 80's Marlin Skier @ McCormicks Ski School in FL in 97
www.skimccormick.com
They had it sitting on their 2nd lake weighted with an extended pylon in case anyone wanted to wakeboard..landed my first flip behind it....Back then Jeremy Kovack(90's wakeboard pro..one of the first!) trained there from time to time and I saw him do every trick in the book behind the same boat..Very impressive! The boat is very similar to an American Skier Advance...Solid construction and Great wake...2- 500lbs fat sacs running up the sides beside the engine box and a "ten Foot Pole" it totally did the trick!..It sat there and pulled wake boarders all day as well as a couple footers who would pop by for a mid afternoon boom session, I even ran the course(slalom)behind it ,,made me have faith in the durability and longlastingness of boats!I will try to scan some shots as I have no digi's of the boats
