I have both... A 01' Powerquest and a 98' Mastercraft. Both are for sale. The mastercraft is a 30th anniversary boat, with the corvette LT1 in it... They will pull like nothing else... We used to ski A LOT.. but pretty mcu have stopped... thus selling the boat... Stored it inside also its whole life.. I treat it better than my truck! It sleeps outside. If anyone is interested in either.. lemme know...

Been a two boat family for three yrs now- have owned tige inboards since 95, have a 99 now with a tower and taps (big trim tab for "shaping" the wake. Had the Daytona for three yrs. Found ourselve's spending less and less time doing watersports- my 10 yr old would rather cruise and swim, wife got injured barefooting, then wakeboarding. Tidge for sale as well as the Daytona.

Our Pantera (Ok, I own 3 right, I'm a dummy) will stay on plane at 18 and will occasional see rec wakeboarding use.

I'd pass on the jetboats- they fall in the water under 30, tubing, kneeboards and wakeboards are all 15-20 sports.

Put too much power to an inboard and you'll lift the transom and plow the nose- just no point in trying to go faster than 50 with these hulls.

I had sold my ski boat to buy problemchild, I couldn't afford two boats. It was my pride and joy. 3 months of hard work to bring it back into shape.. 1986 century CTS tournament skier. Low freeboard, 260 merc and no mufflers

Check out the pics.. it was unique..

I have a 1960 16 foot century resorter. I just repowered it with a 350 Mercruiser. Its great to ski, kneeboard, and wakeboard with. And it will still do 180's with ease.
