Just bought my first boat a 1991 Prostar 190. Thanks for all of the great info on the site to help me get up to speed with the brand/model, etc.

As you can see from the pic my driveway is a disaster so I will be reading back through the trailer lifting threads. It's possible to get up the driveway but I have to use several 8' 2x12s to help with the bottom section.

Jordan Lake, Apex, NC

Nice boat. You'll love the wake behind it. Great hull.

Good luck with the driveway. I have a driveway with a steep approach, so needless to say I will be interested to see what you come up with.

Welcome to Team Talk.

You'll like that rig. I've got a '91 in matching colors (no tower) and it has been a great boat.

The trans badge says Velvet Drive 1.52:1 S#10-17-... so I believe it is the 71C.

I've been boating since I was 8 and never driven a boat with this much torque, I think it would deep start an elephant.

Maybe the prop is designed for low end. I get around 4500 at WOT which appears to be a couple hundred less than expected from stock setup.

Love the boat and glad to be part of the board.

the 1.52:1 is the powerslot. it was designed for the extra kick. the stock prop is a OJ 14X18.
the 351W in that boat is based off of the Ford Racing HD truck motor, 240hp/345trq
the 4500 max rpm is close.... the boat is only rated at 4600 rpm max. what elevation are you at?
the 91-94 hulls are known to be one of the best slalom wakes ever.

if you dont wakeboard, please take that tower off.

We have a 91 Prostar with the Powerslot tranny. It is a great boat!! ****in right it is!!! :D Milk, Doo, and I have the same beast as well. 91's with Powerslot trannys. Bad arse machines baby!!!:banana: I have had several peeps drive mine (including Peason here) that are familiar with ski boats and say these boats are performance demons! I have an ACME prop on mine and it kicks!

And Dude, I agree with my brutha Doo, if you dont board, remove that tower....:o
