  1. Just ordered a hat (and shipped it to Japan to contribute another $190 to the cause :cheer:) Thanks for all you do.
  2. Thanks dtown. I was at good Ole Cherry Creek. It is small and usually a zoo, but not a bad place to break in an engine in April (assuming you do not hit anything). Plus you get to use the same old joke from European Vacation "Look kids, Big Ben!" as you make your laps around the lake. I thought it was really strange that I missed the prop too (not that I am complaining). Your catfish theory is sounding more and more plausible. I met another new MB owner out there too, our number in the metro area are growing!
  3. I do, but was just curious what the cost was vs. my deductible. I know it would be hard to give an exact quote without knowing the full extent of the damage. I was just looking for a rough estimate if anyone else has had to replace a rudder.
  4. 30 minutes into my 25 hour engine break-in I hit something under the water! We were running at about 20 mph in 10-12 feet of water (per the depth gage).

  8. I have been lurking on this site for some time as I researched the family's next boat. I want to say thanks to all of you for giving me a feel for what the MB brand is all about. I particularly appreciated IXFE's post on WW as he walked through his experience picking out a boat. I always assumed my next boat would be a Wakesetter (VLX). I have spent that last 4 years drooling over every Bu I saw on the lake. I had every intention of making that our next boat (or maybe the Axis based on affordability) until I stumbled across the MB’s at a boat show. I was immediately impressed with th
