Marsha and Ron are Retiring!
Marsha and Ron are retiring! Skier's Edge is going out of business by April 1st, 2016. Skiers Edge has been in business since the 1990's and at one time sold not only water sports equipment but also Correct Craft and Mastercraft boats. Skier's Edge has long been a supporter of IWSA and water sports related events around the state. We will miss them! Do stop by as they are offering all of their inventory at bargain discounts through March.
The Indianapolis Boat, Sport, and Travel Show is over so that means you've got to go see the dealers! Mike at Pine Crest Marine for Mastercraft, Doug and George at Mid Indiana Marine for Malibu, and Mark at N3Boatworks for your Nautique will be glad to guide you to the ski boat of your choice. Special thanks to Mike Gross of Pine Crest Marine for allowing the IWSA and INDY SKIERS to operate in their booth space at the show.
