      Picked this up last week, I really only wanted the motor. It was like getting the hull for free. I'll run it around this summer and rebuild another Hydrostream this winter to put this motor on.

      Bought this about two weeks ago. 2006 Monterey 234fs 38hrs on it.

      Photobucket

      After a complete service, took it to 13th floor towers for a little love.

      Photobucket

      Ive already ordered a Seadek for the rear swimstep, wakeboard racks, a mirror, and DBOT5 tower speakers. Its going to be a good summer.

      I got to enjoy my "older" brothers Bennington this past weekend. Basically this:



      Pretty kick ass cruiser. Yamaha 115 Motor, Plush seating with Lounge style seating in back and a pretty kick ass Sony/Kicker Sound system. My only gripe is it's an out board and it gets a bit noisy when you're on the lounge chairs in back.

      Picked up and '05 X2 to replace my '87 Prostar at the beginning of summer. This is just a quick picture I took with the phone after removing the original "graphics" and laying down some drip molded MasterCraft logos.

      My good friend and I traded for weekend.

      He got a 09 ZX6R. Yes, he can ride like no other. I trust him to take the bike out whenever he wants to. Probably the only person I can let go without issues.



      I got:



      He has 2 of these. and a supercharged sea doo 3 seater.

      I prefer the sea doo, its more stable. and a hair faster with me on it.

      Getting into boat racing. I'll be part of a friends team. No clue what my duties will be beyond helping out on race days and driving the tow boat. Here's a peek at what the PRACTICE/TOY boat looks like:

      borrowed my boat out to a friend two weekends ago. I went to go for a ride on Sunday, didn't make it out of the launch.

      Rectifier blown, water pump and housing ground out, water jackets packed with sand.

      Today is repair day. Cleaned passages, new impeller, wired in a radio shack rectifier. New head gaskets too.

      Just got this back from being wrapped. It was a full white hull. I think it turned out great, paint was more than I was willing to take on.

      Just gotta put tabs on it now and fix the sounder.

      How much does wrapping a boat that size cost? Humm...ideas coming to mind for a couple of older boats I have...i thought paint was the only real way to go and a GOOD sprayed paint job is WAY out of my budget for these boats...

    35. 08-16-2012 07:19 PM #105
      I think when I got paint quoted it was something over 4 grand for a guy I know does good work, which was way more than I wanted to pay.

      Luckily we have a a family friend that does vinyl. I got the best quality stuff he had, the MC numbers, the stripe, and the name for $1900.

      He said it would usually be around $2500. This was with the highest quality vinyl, and the extras. The boat is a 24' just to give you an idea. If you went with a cheaper vinyl and skipped the numbers and such it'd be around $1800 I imagine.

      edit: if you are ballsy you can watch some tutorials online and order the stuff to do it yourself. I think materials for a similar size boat would be around $900. This boat required a pretty big size 60" I think to be able to fit on the flair of the bow. Normal boats you could get away with less width which would be cheaper. Honestly I don't think it'd be that hard. I would have tried it if I didn't know someone who does it for a living.
