Sport Nautique

10hp? Try over 300 hp!

Same colors as the Nauty I used to own, expect I had a white Boss tower

HI, mine is spelt 'Sportnautik' so may not be the same, although going by the description with the age and everything I think it is, so you will not be far off at 7 KW.

10hp sound more like it, what does it do with that on the back?

I think across the pond they don't know what a real "Sport Nautique" is See photo above for name on boat, by the manufacturer Correct Craft which is a registered (R) name. Correct Craft has been around since 1925, with the sport Nautique coming out in 1989 and still built today. BTW it is 20'9".

After all wakeboarding was invented in the USA, and is a rockin' sport with babes in bikini's hanging out on the boat Don't make me fire up my other computer and make you jealous with pics.
