I'm looking into buying a 1997 ski supreme 210 medalist. It looks great from the pics. It has a new BareWest Tower in 05 with custom beminiTop.
Alpine 6 CD changer with DUAL Amplifier for Awesome sound. All new tires on trailer. Engine with only 510 hours. 400 lbs bladder and pump.

My question is, are there any wood stringers or floor boards in this boat? I would hope that by 1997 most boat makers went to composite/fiberglass but since this company went out of business I may never know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

They went out of business? If they did, I'm not sure why their website is still active...

They stopped using wood stringers in the early 90's. I believe it happened mid 92, i could be wrong on the actual time but it's pretty safe to say that the boat pictured doesn't have wood stringers.

Have it checked out. If they're good, I wouldn't worry about it but that's just my opinion. I see an all red Shaun Murray Edition rolling through my neighborhood now and again. Same style as above and a sweet looking set up. It would be awesome if Supreme came out with a similar set up again.

I'm pretty sure 97's had XL ply stringers and floors.

Should have carried a lifetime warranty.

Thank you

This is the quote from the seller. But I didn't believe him. I was hoping that there was little or no wood in the boat. I doubt that correct craft even builds it. I think I saw something about Ski Centurian building these boats in the 90's. Not that I would be opposed to Correct Craft, I love their boats.

"The hull is fiberglass, the runners(stringers) are fiberglass over wood. The floorboards are treated wood I think under carpet. Same construction as Correct Craft (they build the Supreme)"

Nice looking boat. And if you ask Sanger owners,they'll say you hope it DOES have wood stringers!

Ok so this is the way it works
Fineline builds Centurion and Ski Supreme.
Kal Kustom Owns Ski Supreme and Contracts with Fineline to build the hulls. Kal Kustom is the west cost distributor for Centurion. The East Coast Centurions are built in NC and sold Direct from Centurion.

Correct Craft has nothing to do with Ski Supreme

I would guess that you have composite stringer system... but you will find side panels, floors, etc to be treated wood. But the integral structual parts should be some type of composite material. Thats the same boat Shaun Murray used in his instructional videos "Detention".

if he told you that Correct Craft builds the boat, run from the deal. He's obviously lying through his teeth, who knows what else he's lying about...

I know that for a short time in the mid 90's that the Supreme hulls were being laid up at the BlueWater factory in Oregon. After that, Fineline started doing the mold work, as Kevin stated above. I think a 97 would probably be a Merced boat, as Kevin said.
