FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUGUST, 1996

                        1997 SKI NAUTIQUE 176
                NAUTIQUE QUALITY AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE!

ORLANDO, FL   The Correct Craft 1997 SKI NAUTIQUE 176 presents an opportunity for the first-time buyer to own the very best quality
towboat at a price to fit the family budget.   Two feet shorter than its renowned SKI NAUTIQUE sister-ship, the new 1997 Ski Nautique 176 is
constructed of the same unparalleled quality materials and craftsmanship that is a part of every boat built by Correct Craft --such as the
thickness of its gel coat application (almost 30% more than any competitor's) and its 100% use of AME 5000 marine resin to the exceptional
and exclusive integrated composite stringer system (ICS) that produces its superior hull strength.

The introductory-model Ski Nautique 176 will provide many years of skiing, wakeboarding or recreational boating.  The Ski Nautique 176 is ideal
for both casual boaters and true watersports enthusiasts with plenty of power to pull a wakeboarder, a barefooter or even multiple skiers.  The
176 is fully loaded with all the features and benefits you need to make every boating excursion a pleasure.

Comfortable upholstered seats, with their distinctive Correct Craft logo, accommodate the driver and up to six passengers.  The in-deck
wet-or-dry cooler provides convenient storage for refreshments.  The powerful PCM 260 HP, carbureted engine with breakerless ignition, and
Power Plus transmission generate effortless towing, while the elite Nautique spray relief pockets reduce unwanted spray behind the boat.

New features in the 1997 Ski Nautique 176 provide greater comfort and convenience for the driver.  The adjustable driver's seat is constructed
of the highest quality marine vinyl and provides superior support, while the use of HR70 foam biocide treatment and UBR stabilizers work
together to prevent mildew, deterioration and fading.  The quality form and function of the removable dash pod offers an unobstructed view of
the state-of-the-art instrumentation --all of which carry a 3-year warranty.  New for all 1997 Nautiques is the ingenious progressive pitch,
4-bladed propeller for optimum acceleration.  The driver will notice smoother acceleration moving from a still position to open throttle.

The 1997 Ski Nautique 176, as with all boats built by Correct Craft, continues to benefit from the company's unparalleled tenet for insisting on
using only the finest materials and cutting-edge manufacturing technology in its construction.  Recognizing the superior materials and
workmanship Nautiques possess, AVEMCO, a leader in the marine insurance industry, offers preferred insurance rates exclusively to owners of
Nautiques.  No other towboat manufacturer can make that claim.

From bow to stern, the Ski Nautique 176 gives you more for your money.  Available at participating dealers at an $18,500 value-added price,
dispelling the preconceived notion that a Nautique is too expensive.  Owning a Nautique is more than just owning a boat --it's a lifestyle.  
Purchase of a Ski Nautique 176 presents an opportunity to join the Correct Craft Family for the fun and e***ment of the NAUTIQUES
LifeStyle!

For a ski boat company that claims to have so much respect, why
do you scoop so low as to use a non-commercial news group for
unsolicited commercial advertising?  I like CC boats but keep
your advertising where it belongs - NOT in this news group. Get
some net-manners.

Here's my $0.02 worth,

As long as it is CLEARLY marked in the title w/ something like
"Press Release" (which it was), I don't mind such postings as long
as they are made only occasionally.  It takes only a quick click
on "Next" if I don't want to read it...  It might have been better
to combine the 4 or 5 postings into one, or to announce the press
releases w/ the CC home page address for those who want to read
more...

If I can't tell in the title, however, that it is a commercial
message, that's a different story..!

I have to disagree here.  I think this type of advertising is welcome in
this newsgroup.  Boat manufactures change hulls once in only about 7 years.
 I think a waterskiing newsgroup is a relevant place to post such things.
As another poster suggested, clearly marked advertising is a necessity
though.

Since when is having less information better than knowing more?!?

I agree with Don's reply...  I think newsgroups like this are an excellent
place to post such advertising **AS LONG AS** it relates to the newsgroup
posted to!  I'd rather read it here and now that wait for a brochure via
snail mail.  What better place can you find out about things and learn
what's going on quicker than using the Interent.  More and more people need
to realize this and UTILIZE this incredible resource!  (most will agree,
the web is a great example of reaching and maximizing this potential - and
it's still very young)

Read what you want and leave the rest behind!  Think of it this way... at
least your email Inbox isn't piling up with advertisments (yet).

Keep up the good work Correct Craft and do all you can to keep us up to
date on your products!!

What if EVERY boat company, ski mfgr, rope mfgr, wetsuit mfgr, ski
shop, waterski school, waterski widgit mfgr etc etc made numerous
posts like this every time they thought they had something new?  
This group would be clogged past the point of usefullness.  This
is not a commercial news group and was not intended to be used
that way.

Quite right
With the Correct Craft Announcement they seemed to make quite a number
of identical (?) postings, which (imho) was un-necessary.
IMHO, a *brief* announcement is O.K, with a reference to their Web site
for full details

granted...  but how is this different than having "for sales" posted or
getting the same question asked over and over and over again in any online
forum???

Isn't this why we are all watching the newsgroups anyway...  to get the
most current information, right now!?

I would not confuse CC with just any mfr.  This is arguably (all the time
it is argued, so don't flame me for this statement please) one of the most
noteworthy products for sale to waterskiers.  It is a major change which
made a HUGE difference in the way it skis (the wake is really gone now at
slalom speeds and the wakeboard/trick wake is bigger with less turbulence,
no hype).  I was glad to get the information as soon as I did even if the
posts were unnecessarily redundant.  So no, I hope EVERY boat company, ski
mfgr, rope mfgr, wetsuit mfgr, ski shop, waterski school, waterski widgit
mfgr etc etc doesn't do the same thing, but I think the changes were
worthy of a press release and of a posting to this newsgroup.
