i am a fairly new wakeboarder, i am looking at a 1979 mastercraft 19 skier in great shape for my first wkbrd boat, will this boat do the job w/ a monster tower and a couple of 500# sacks? Is $3500 too much for this boat?

Is that about all you want to spend? A friend of mine had a '79 about 8 years ago. The boat ran really well, but he didn't load it down with sacs. Do you have any idea how many hours are on it? If you can spend a little more, I would probably look for something a little newer. If you can't, go test drive it and see how it runs. I would be cautious buying a boat that old. As far as the wake goes, the 190 will throw a DECENT wake with a lot of weight. You just have to be careful you don't get too much because of the low freeboard. On a high note, if you do buy it and it goes to hell in a year, you are only out 3500.

or you could look at a 80's 2001 ski nautique, they throw good wakes. you could get one for around 5-8k

the boat itself is in excellent shape, it has 1100 hours on it, i am only looking to get one or two seasons of use until i can afford a newer moomba lsv, i own a powersports shop and a marina so repairs to an older boat come cheap:-) thanks for the feedback

hahah... 9 times out of 10 "my whatever" is going to be way better! but if you are looking for a closed bow inboard the 2001 is widely known as the most bang for your buck!

Suck it up and go for the best you can afford. No such thing as a beginner boat. You are just going to want to trade up next year anyway, and the nicer the boat, the faster your skills will progress...

Here's where I am coming from with my previous statement that: "... the nicer the boat, the faster your skills will progress." I rode behind an inboard/outboard for 3 years, and then once I started riding behind an X-star, I learned more in a month than I had learned in those 4 years combined.

I know many people who would say the same thing. I don't think you can disagree with that...

I think it is more of a question of learning proper technique... you should be able to do/learn most of your tricks behind an I/0, can you jump higher easier with improper technique behind an x star... sure!

Kris,

I think you would be quite happy with the 79MC set up as you describe for your needs. I three event skied behind them when they were new, it was a good year for MC, I almost bought one myself in the late 80's.

As others have mentioned the SN 2001 throws a better wake because of the hull differences (dropped center V vs Powerslot).
