its an 01 with the hook added on . im probably taking off the tower if anyone wants a mini let me know...

mymc.. can you get me a tunable rudder? i dont want to shave it down to load it.

Does it have the 01 rudder on it? Is that your old ski buddy's boat?

Sure, and I'll take the mini-tower. BtW is that the one I help the guy with the "hook" on? If not you'll need to do it or the spray will wipe you out at short line.

Did you notice how quick I knew what year it was? Got it by the wheels...those are the safe ones from 2001.;)

Do you mean an 83-88 SN???

No no no that is a Mastercraft:D

BrianM

Good call on taking off the tower. Nice looking boat but you need to do something with that bimini. It doesn't match and looks sloppy.

I just realized that it is a 190. Welcome back to the world of closed bow. Those boats are sexy.

i doubt it's a california boat. either way, by the time i need to worry about spray at shorline, we'll be old and grey

yes it still has the 01 rudder, so i want to switch it for a tunable rudder. its not my buddy's boat. his was blue and black.

Yeah, tuneable or not, get the 06 --?? rudder. Again, cool lookin' boat.

It is either a 310 or a 330...TBI or LTR?

Drooool! That is a fine looking boat. If I could find one I might trade again. Probably in my price range That boat is a close second to the 2005 TT to me.

Does anybody know if the Mini Tower off of Rod's new 190 would fit on a 99 205?

The beam on the two boats would have to be very close, and I would imagine that the feet / mounting brackets for the tower would have to articulate. Are the front mounts in a fixed position on that tower?

I'm thinking its a longshot. I PM'd Rod and he doesn't know either so I'm asking the group. I have an aftermarket tower but am not really happy with it.

LTR...make sure all the recalls have been done.


I'm an original owner of an 01 230 VRS with an LTR, living in the same house I lived in when I bought the boat. (AND an active Team Mastercraft member too!)

I was never notified of any recalls.

Do the recalls not affect the v-drive's?

As far as noise in the boat goes, I would much rather spend 10 hrs in that MC than in a standard Bu( standard Bu's don't come with any sound insulation and that gets real old after 2hrs.)

Good lucking boat

Yours has a bit of a hook in it already. My nearby MC glass guru says he's done a couple of early 90s boats, but it really doesn't need it.
