Do you think they would take Western Union money transfer?

mattscraft 12-24-2009 5:15 AM

Total scam, that boat was originally a demo for Cincinnati Mastercraft and sold in Cincinnati for around $68,000.

jonyb 12-24-2009 10:59 AM

That one was for sale on here not long ago. Guy lost his job and had to sell just after buying it, or so the story goes.

peter_c 12-24-2009 12:50 PM

If someone is interested in it a phone call to the guy would confirm much of the true story. The phone number is in the ad. Appears he had other boats for sale too, which is somewhat suspicious. Plus it could be examined and held at a boat dealership. There are lots of things that can be done to prevent scams. 3rd party transfers are pretty easy to do these days. <BR> <BR>Sometimes you actually get killer deals in life. I know I have! Cash is king!

gangster_wake 12-24-2009 1:48 PM

total scam... This was our boat at Cincy MC and we sold it locally.

jimmy_z 12-24-2009 11:20 PM

Finally.....a realistic price for a MC.

dirwoody 12-25-2009 9:15 AM

LOL Jim!

kirk 12-28-2009 1:28 PM

I just sent him a cashiers check for $48K and he is going to cash it and send me the boat and the extra $20K back. What a great deal!

formfunction 12-28-2009 4:02 PM

At that price I still wouldn't buy that gas drinkng 30 mph anchor.

xmarksthespot 12-28-2009 5:50 PM

brock, i think your thinking of bu's wedge no? you would have to be borderline retarded to not buy, to atleast make 20 grand off it!

leveraged 12-28-2009 6:21 PM

there needs to be a sarcasm font, that last post makes me think your actually serious. Then again there was a fire sale MS in the classifieds and the thread got ripped to bits and it was an actual real sale fairly cheap.

formfunction 12-28-2009 7:05 PM

Don't get me wrong,the xstar is the sexiest boat made hands down but its still a anchor.

jeff359 12-28-2009 8:32 PM

"30 mph anchor" <BR> <BR>If you are a boarder only, the x star is fine speed wise. Do you really need more than 35 MPH? Unless you are the doucebag with ten tower speakers, board racks full of brand new boards, turning roadies between tube runs. <BR> <BR>Nobody here gives a dick about speed in a wake boat. <BR> <BR> Roll a crew that rocks diffrent boats. We hit vacation with 4 class A RVs, towing a wakeboat, a 22 ft Advantage, a 90+ MPH flat, and a trailer of jet roaches. Every boat has a purpose. Speed has never been MCs thing.

michridr69 12-28-2009 10:35 PM

lol people

formfunction 12-29-2009 8:32 AM

It doesn't have anything to do with speed,just the fact that you have to put two tons worth of ballast for it to come alive.Its a poor design and the industry is lagging because nobody demands improvement.So keep dragging your nine thousand pound rig through the water and don't get mad when you see your gas bill. <BR>Anchor.

denverd1 12-29-2009 9:05 AM

They pull the PWT for a reason.

justridin 12-29-2009 9:18 AM

Correct Nacho. The reason is that they pay for the right to do so.

denverd1 12-29-2009 9:25 AM

The way you demand improvement is by spending your money in other directions. <BR> <BR>So which boat gets your vote?

formfunction 12-29-2009 11:11 AM

No boat gets my vote Nacho.There all over priced chunks of epoxy resin using decade old chevy computers and Engines. <BR>Might be nice to have that new X25 with a turbo deisel option though.

jeff_mn 12-29-2009 11:25 AM

For Brock <BR> <BR> <BR><a href="http://img.moronail.net/img/5/7/1257.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.moronail.net/img/5/7/1257.jpg</a>

formfunction 12-29-2009 12:24 PM

And thats the attitude that got us where we are,a decade behind in favor of flash and owners goggles so thick nothing relavent ever comes of anything. <BR>Do you not wish you had current tech ten years ago?What would perfect pass have been like in the early years?Ballast?Better boards?no stretch ropes? <BR>What would it be like now if companies had spent more on hull design and drive systems instead of flashy new crap?I don't want to wait.I don't want a ton of ballast.I want a modern wake machine with real technology and effort behind it that doesn't require crazy things like water bags and a damn straight shaft going through a hole in the floor.Wake up people and smell the coffee called the same damn boat as last year.

denverd1 12-29-2009 12:45 PM

Then buy a 2001 and get your ass on the water in a boat with a price that matches the "current" technology! <BR> <BR>No water bags?? What do you recommend we do with ballast? <BR> <BR>A hole in the floor??? So you want the engine under the boat???

duckguy 12-29-2009 12:45 PM

Brock wants cutting edge and his current boat is a Correct Craft. OK Brock! <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weqG8y62ZOs" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weqG8y62ZOs</a>

talltigeguy 12-29-2009 12:54 PM

Brock has me laughing. He thinks that someone who spends close to 6 figures on a boat to be used 150 hours per year is worried about gas prices. <BR> <BR>Take up jogging if you are worried about cost. It think that a good pair of shoes can run $100.

denverd1 12-29-2009 12:56 PM

Brock take up sailing. No flashy crap there, no big gas bill either...

formfunction 12-29-2009 1:38 PM

Tallmastercraftguy,I am glad I could bring a boat owner laughter in the winter.
