P90X3 would be perfect for you - it only takes 30 minutes a day. I've done multiple rounds of P90X, and can't say enough about it. If you do what Tony Horton (the P90X guy) says, and eat what he...

Hey, thanks guys. This is a crazy situation. Mastercraft no longer makes a fuel module for my boat. (I spoke with two dealers, and then the corporate parts department, all of whom told me the same...

Fuel pump for 1999 x star with LTR motor

My fuel pump died. Does anyone know the part number? The sticker on the top of mine is completely illegible. I talked to SkiDim and they said it's a proprietary Mastercraft part, and the two...

I totally agree. Had I greased my rudder (which I hadn't done for 8 years) prior to installing the new steering cable, something tells me I wouldn't have thought I needed a new steering cable.

I had to replace the tilt helm and steering cable on my 99 star this year. I considered switching to a rack and pinion, but the guys at ski dim didn't recommend it. The impression I got was that...

If the rudder is the only thing that's bad, that's a ton of boat for 6500 bucks. Good luck and post some pics when you're done.

I saw the one at Lake Hopatcong Marine a few years ago. It's a beautiful boat, but my guess is that it'll be available there for viewing for some time . . . .

I totally understand. I got mine in 2006, when gas wasn't such a big deal. Another downside of the SS is that, at least in my experience, the suspension is fragile. I've probably paid a total of...
