We got this boat mid-August. It’s my first boat and I split it with a friend. The guy we got it from kept it stored on a lift for its entire life. The hull is in great shape and the side graphics are in pretty good shape as well.

It runs like a champ and I’ve skied more this summer than in any of the other summers where I had to beg a tow off of someone else. The funny part of the story is that I wasn’t even looking for a boat. I did buy a nice H.O. Wade Cox CDX-1 double boot off of ebay at the end of winter. I got a ski before the boat. I never would have thought my wife would’ve ok’d the purchase but here she is.

On the to do list is to make a swim platform, repaint the stern lettering and maybe change the funky 70’s orange interior although it’s in pretty good shape. The plan is to remove the ladder and use the top ladder mounts to hold a grab handle that we will have bent. It’s getting tiring rolling off of the gunnels into the water with the ski on.
