Check out this great testimonial from Ray Medlock regarding his MTI-V 42 and his first experiences with the center console.

For someone who lives in Kansas and boats most often at his home on Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks, late February doesn’t sound like a great time of year to take delivery of a boat you purchased on your hometown lake. But for Ray Medlock, the timing of his purchase of a new MTI-V 42 luxury performance center console from Wake Effects in Osage Beach, Mo., couldn’t have come at a better time.

How so? Medlock, a lifelong freshwater lake boater whose primary experience with performance boating was through friends, took the maiden voyage in his beautiful red, gray and white 42-footer powered by quad Mercury Racing Verado 400R in the Florida Keys a few days after the Miami International Boat Show ended as part of the MTI Owners Fun Run from Miami to Marathon.

The experience, according to Medlock, was beyond anything he could imagine. He said his first saltwater boating experience, which happened to take place in one of the coolest places to boat in saltwater, was the “perfect trip.”

“I had no idea I was jumping on a plane to meet some of the best people I’ve ever encountered when I left for the MTI Owners Fun Run,” said Medlock, CEO of Source Inc., a wireless integration company in Shawnee, Kan. “I met so many great people and saw so many cool boats. I can’t say enough good things about how the Wake Effects team treated me. Rusty Rahm and the rest of the guys went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable with the boat in the open water. It was an eye-opening experience for someone who has only boated on lakes. I couldn’t have done it without the Wake Effects team and everyone at MTI. From (MTI owner) Randy Scism, his brother-in-law Greg (McCauley) and (MTI sales manager) Tom Stuart, the group at MTI was super helpful.”
