The old front screen was chopped by the previous owner - stupid old swerver that he was :evil:
I added the high pole & bimini and am looking at doing a tower in the not too distant future.
Engine is PCM 351W, fresh water cooled with velvet drive.
Wake is big and steep :D .
In this picture there is 400Kg ballast and 2 people.

this is my camero with a custom built tower made for the boat, i have removeable board racks for it, it has 350 chev with dog clutch, havent put any weight in her yet, she throws a damn good wake without any, oh and its 18/19ft long, out on the coomera river pretty much every weekend

We bought a Malibu Response just before easter but we haven't been able to part with this little 15ft Performance Craft Boss just yet, it has a 350chev and I love driving it and feeling all cosy and listening to the V8 roar, it sounds awesome.

forgot 2 write a bit about my boat (mastercraft). ive only owned in 4 about 6 months, was pretty neglected when i got it, had to get the heads and carby done, it looked as though someone had poured water down the to of the carby(boat hadnt been used 4 about 8 months before i bought it. had to redo all brakes and new hubs and wheels on trailer. doing the pole on the cheap, got a length of stainless from work (at the powdercoaters at the moment) and getting a top machined 4 it, should be all up bout 100bucks. usually have 3 big bags and about 3 people, wakes pretty nice, need a bit more weight up forward though. as u can see dont need to spend a arm and a leg 2 get a nice wake.

Mr R - the mastercraft looks very nice mate. I'm assuming being a US boat she's running manifold risers etc & has a velvet drive??

Brownie - My nautique is 18'.

Bretto - saw your boat on Saturday. Looks alright - kinda weird looking at a camero with 'Nemesis' down the side :lol:

You can minimise the bad luck that comes with renaming a boat by doing the following
If it is a sail boat you need to take the name off the transom of the boat and throw it over the back. Then you need to sail the boat backwards over the name. Easier said than done, but crisis averted.
For a power boat you can't actually avoid the bad luck completely, however it is said to run out after the boat has been run aground 3 times after re-naming. Obviouly it would be a good idea to find a nice soft spot to run the boat up on to, or you can just go for a ride in the Nerang.
