Okay so I'm a little upset! I've owned my prostar 190 for almost 3 years now and I've never even put a scratch on it... This past week I went to Table Rock for a weeks vacation. <BR> <BR>Wednesday I hit a tree stump with my prop, put a good nick in the prop, but otherwise no damage. Wednesday night I was pulling out of a boat slip and a huge wave broadsided me and pushed me into the dock puting a huge scratch in the gelcoat. Damn I was livid. Next morning we are pulling up to the course at 7am and here come 2 jet skis hauling a$$ through the course running over buoys and knocking off boat guides. I chased them down and asked them politely to go somewhere else on the lake and tear a$$, as I'm talking to one of the girls, she drifts over and slams into the side of my boat leaving a huge black streak. Then Friday afternoon I'm backing the boat into the driveway so I can clean it up and I back the sun of a bi&amp;ch into the garage door. <BR>Not a good week for the Mastercraft. Damn I was pissed.

Oh yeah!! i can relate to that.Well at least your boat didnt fall of the trailer and land on the dirt hill i was driving up.I was in to much of a hurry and forgot to put the safety chain on.

Ouch. I had a bad week too. My trailer rolled away from m in my storage area and the tongue impaled a nice Class A motorhome. I need a new coupler and the motorhome...well let's not go there. Then last weekend I was coaxed into going to a lake I hate by my neighbors. I managed to smack a rock with my prop. On the bright side, it gave me a reason to order a new Acme prop and relegate this OJ prop to back-up duty.

I actually had to argue with a jetskier about the slalom course. It appears that some think they are jetski courses.

Beach, I noticed that the other day, I was about to post and give you crap, then I realized it was from 4 years ago.

4 years ago and my Dad is still unhappy about the garage door! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>
