Approved Tow Boat Test

I just got the newest edition of the Waterskier with the boat test article.( BTW if you look at the Mastercraft Bio, take note of the Dash pic. Its flipped around ).

Anyway, I was wondering , has any boat that has been submitted failed ,went home with their tail between their legs and just said forget it , we will try again next year?

I am aware of the notorious 1998 MC issue, don't know if they just passed anyway or needed the PPTS (or what ever the band aids were called) to pass. Either way , I am assuming it passed and moved on to pulling tournaments.

Out of curiosity , in recent history have any boats just straight up fail?

    I seem to recall some issues with possibly all of the boats when the catalytic converter was introduced a few years ago. I think there may have been some sort of heat issue that prevented sufficient acceleration for that part of the test. It seems like Malibu was able to pass by performing the acceleration test with the boat somewhat cold and right out of the chute in the morning on a subsequent try. Others closer to the tests can confirm or correct this.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.
