My wife doesn't care which way she's sitting as long as there's sun. I like the post 2012 220's because they have the wraparound seating - that's my next target.

but... I always wanted a Malibu. Recently the Mastercrafts have grown on me. My family has the lake house so two boats just means adding another lift.

Ideally I's love to keep the 190 for a long time, I just honestly love the boat. I think it might be one of the most well designed boats ever made from a functionality standpoint. Everything makes sense.

I'd love to have another strictly for towing... We're restoring a 56' whaler for fishing purposes (no fishing on the 190).

My pops has a '47 Chris Craft Rocket that's perfect for the after dinner cruise... and mine to go tow him back when it quits on him a few times a season :D

That's awesome any pictures of the 47?
If I lived on a smaller lake we would have a bu no questions asked. But we have allot of water and not glass very often.

He's clearly having a blast! Looks like a bit of trim might speed it up even more.

To say he loves that boat would be an understatement. He's got a 1924 Star Sailboat that he fully restored that unfortunately he just can't sail anymore... honestly we're scared to death to sail it.

I took those shots from my 86 Century Riviera that I just sold. I'll post pics of that bad boy when i get a second. Another beautiful boat with clean lines.

We're a fan of the classics :D

Was just looking around the forum and popped in here again - still the only 190 owner on the planet! - I got a thought... let's see everyone's first boat.

If you have a pic or pics of your first love/hate post em up. My century is above and rebuilt much of that boat. Bought it for $600, and sold it for $700 6 years later. I loved that thing. I have to dig around for our previous boat - "the Duct Tape".
