1st boat was a 20' bayliner.. I thnk it was a 1984
2nd was a 1992 bayliner skiboat(bad choice)
3rd 1993 Mastercraft Prostar 190
4th 1994 Mastercraft Prostar 190
5th 1995 Mastercraft Prostar 190
6th 1996 Mastercraft Prostar 190
7th 1998 Mastercraft Prostar 190 30th anniversary
(see a pattern? lol)
8th 2001 PowerQuest Stryker 237
Somewhere between boat 6 and 7 we bought a 12 foot quicksilver inflatable with a 15hp mercury to play on the lake with.
We had all the Mastercrafts because the dealer was a personal friend of the family (and my mother,brother, and me worked there). We also skiied on a waterski team in the summer months(we were living in upstate NY at the time).

The first boat I have owned myself is the powerquest, the others were our families. We still have the 1998 Mastercraft, and it is for sale if you know anyone interested.

I still have mine, a 1986 18' Donzi Classic with a 310 hp small block Mercruiser. Alpha drive with a Land & Sea Stern Jack. Red and White of course. Great boat, ran about 70 on GPS. The Fountain is a little more stable and quite a bit faster.

First Boat was a ex Salton Sea marathon racer known as "Lil Honker" (custom by Glastron). Originally powered by a Weber carbed Ford 427 with individual tube headers and a V-drive. It was a low profile deep V with a small delta pad. I understand that it was quite a handful during races: major chine walker.

Current boat is a Chris Cat that has been almost totally redone. Powered by a pair of blown 572s. Great boat!

We own a commercial real estate brokerage and I am also the Director of Sales & Leasing-Real Estate at the Texas Motor Speedway.
