Our 92 MasterCraft ProStar 205 Makes Some Progress

Postby Tony » Tue May 26, 2009 8:50 am

So we spent the last couple months working on the boat we picked up last year. We were hoping to have brought it up for Memorial Day Weekend, but sadly it was not to be. The trailer had a short in it so the mission was scrubbed friday night. We decided to just stay home for the weekend and blow out as much work as we could. Here's where shes at:

Well, the tow pig died on us last weekend, so we couldn't make it again. This is the fourth fuel pump going into this truck. What a pain. If the weather holds, we'll try and make it up this weekend.

Anyway, we've made some more progress with the boat in the meantime.

- The stereo is totally done, complete with MP3 deck.
- Rebuilt and installed the holley 4160 carb
- All the teal vinyl is now dyed black. Looks OK, but some messy spots bled a bit.
- Did some touchup paint on the trim, vents, etc.
- Vacuumed and cleaned out the interior, armorall and vinyl conditioner.
- Wet sanded, buffed and waxed the white gelcoat above the rub rail.

Tony,

I saw your boat docked on Sunday (windy weekend). Looks good. I assume the tower tilts or folds down to get under the bridge.

Thanks John! Yes, the tower folds down, at least a foot or so. We unscrew a couple of knobs in the rear legs and it folds back and rests on a couple of rubber bumpers against the windshield frame. We have about 8 inches of clearance under london bridge with an empty boat. More if shes loaded. The best part is that we can leave the boards on the rack.

Im glad we finally had a good day Sunday. It was indeed a windy and rainy week. Im just glad we got rewarded with a gorgeous day on sunday, especially after the fuel pump went out on us on the thruway on our way up, yet again!!! What a mess!!!

Hope everybody had a happy and a safe holiday!

I saw a bowrider with wakeboard tower come out of Green Lake. Their tower folded forward. I am still amazed they got thru. My bowrider alone is a very tight squeze.

I think I saw you out the weekend after the 4th. I was taking my parents for a cruise and you were at the "gathering spot" by the outlet. I latter saw you headed back toward your camp. I am still waiting to catch you during some good wakeboard action. :)
