    @bananaron I think I could give you a run for the money on the Pristine condition. bought my 09 196 from @PatM last year. It was showroom condition. It is still pretty close.

    This one in Helena Montana, we used it in a tournament last weekend.

    And of course my 196. Not prestine in any way but still a great ski tractor.

    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    @bananaron I put a lot of trouble free hours on one those. It was a helluva boat. One of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Congratulations

    Congratulations on the acquisition of a TSC3 SN 196. The pinnacle of 19’ ski boats. I was elated to buy this mint 08 196 in Massachusetts last summer.

    I see your lift canopy has sides. A waterline cover is alsa great way to preserve a boat.

    Jody, thought you sold that red one back when you got your first 200. Always liked that red one.
    “So, how was your weekend?”
    “Well, let me see…sun burn, stiff neck, screwed up back, assorted aches and pains….yup, my weekend was great, thanks for asking.”

    @bananaron did you buy that boat out of Louisiana? I saw one for sale a couple weeks ago just like it.
  • ScarletArrowScarletArrow Posts: 801 Crazy Baller
    @adkh2oskier that looks EXACTLY like my old ‘09. Best boat I ever had. Wish I never sold it.
