YO, i have a correct craft of 1979 that i'm trying to sold (really difficult in Belgium) and i'm looking tu buy a correct craft of 1991. I used to charge mine with 660 lb and about 3 or 4 people in the boat (cant really charge it more) the wake is not that big and too stiff and its like 50% of the weight in the nose... Do you know how would be the wake with a correct craft of 1991. I think I can charge it more than mine but i don't really wanna put 2000lb in the boat because fuel is sooo expensive in Belgium....
hehe kinda difficult ... maybe i should move to Texas

Come to Kansas City. $0.36 USD/litre.
Of course our beer isn't quite as good and we're a lot farther from Amsterdam.

Yeah pierre, we need to know what model of CC you are talking about in order to help you.

I have been to Belgium, nice place there. Drink a Duvel for me today!

ON a non-related note, I think the term "charged" meaning "to add weight" sounds really cool. I may have to start using it, it just sounds so appropriate.

Pierre, if you are looking at a Sport Nautique from 1991 then you will be able to get a very nice wake without much weight. If it is a 1991 SKI nautique, you won't be able to get a good wake very easily (especially compared to a 79 ski).

Hope that helps, man!

For nearly 13000 euro it's not very cheap. You'd get a better deal buying something over here in the UK and then just trailer it back.

But so you think that the wake will be worst than the 79 ?

Pierre, I wakeboarded behind a '70ish Nautique, a '88 2001 and '92 Ski Nautique... Hands down the '92 Ski has the "worst" wake between the 3. It is not really bad and you should be able to do most of the tricks behind it, but by all means it is not better then your current '79 (in my opinion)...

I would keep on looking for a 2001 (from 1988 or 1989) or a Sport Nautique.
I know a nice Barefoot V-drive from 1991 for a little less then e13000,- . With tower and LPG system.

Let me know if I can help you further. Where are you in Belgium, I'm living in Eindhoven and board on the Maas...

Jupiler is good, but Hoegaarden is better ;-)

It looks like a ski the sport would be a better wake boat. I have a 90 and ride with about 1200lbs in the boat and it has a really nice wake. The only bad thing about the 90's is water will come over the rear of the boat because they have a angle to them. They also have a open bow which is nice.

That's cheap!!!
What about a MC 190 pro-sport of 1996? does anyone know how would be the wake?

I think the Barefoot would be sell for e12500,- but I'm not sure. Drop me an email at tvhoek (@at) and I will get you in contact with the original sellers. They have the boat for some years and took good care of it.. It has the BigBlock 7,4ltr 350HP engine in it. So you can load it up with weigth, but the boat itself without any ballast will have a better wake then a Ski Nautique '91 or a MC 190 loaded with 2000lbs!!
