I own a 1991 Mastercraft prostar 190 and my gas tank air vent is taking in water and i cannot find the part anywhere!!!! It has a plastic cover that keeps the water out during turns. THis part broke and i keep getting water in the gas tank. Air vent is located port side toward the bow of the boat. Does anyone Know where to get this part. If so please tell me i have been looking for six months with no luck.

Are you sure this is not your bilge pump discharge port?

Can you post a picture of the existing vent, I'm confused.
I thought the fuel filler was in the rear on the deck above the transom along with the vent on the starboard side, some models in later years had the vent on the transom on the port side.
I just looked at the 1991/1992 ProStar 190 in the Star magazines and the fuel filler is on the deck above the transom and the vent is on the deck above or below the rubrail on the transom on the port side.

my 91PS190 has a fuel vent on the port side just below the rub rail, but I didn't think it was plastic

Is it up toward the bow or on transom?????? Those vents were chrome plated bronze, like our '89, just like this,

91-94 has it below the rub rail on port side of the transom.

Looks to me like H20Freek's link has two viable options.

I think he may be referring to the air intake vents on the bow.

Wasn't there a thread a whie back about taking on water during turns and the problem being solved by changing how the deck was attached to the hull. Rivets versus thru-bolting or vice versa.

perhaps you're correct, blower inlet duct
could be construed as gas tank air vent


but, on MY 91, it's located center of windshield:(

He wants a 190 so bad he gets them mixed up from time to time. 8p

The 87-90's had those same forward vents though.

Come on #1, you know the 91-94's have the bilge discharge on the forward starboard side. ;)

Now it gets interesting!!!!!!!
How is water getting in his gas tank via the bilge air vent in the center of the windshield, wooooooooooo this is scary!

I think I had a poot hung on my boweye once!:rolleyes: :D :cool:

How about this...instead of playing the guessing game...why dont we have the OP post a pic of what is missing. Yeah...sounds good to me....

Put up a pic of what's missing, you'll have your answer shortly after.

That's what I thought, just like our '89, but,.........................:rolleyes:
I guess I could get used to gas fumes coming from the bow into the cockpit!

Thanks, I asked for a pic of his VENT in post #4, I guess he's busy now and can't reply?

I know what he's talking about, The pic Harold posted is a similar gas vent, but there is a small plastic flap under it (incl's a slight gap) to keep water from entering the vent. Had the same problem on my 89 Tristar, and actually had to relocate it to above the rub rail- problem solved for me. Good luck

I don't know about this plan...it makes too much sense.
I've been conditioned by my co. to do things in an illogical manner.

It's way more fun to guess. Right now, I'm guessing he really has a 89 console TriStar and we've all been thrown way off.

OH NO! Now the gas vent is up near the bow on the Port side, on the outside of a box! Is it cardboard, plastic, fiberglass or aluminum?:rolleyes: :D:uglyhamme

Nah, that kind of stuff usually brings about successful grand-slam competetive innovations.

On my way, once I finish counting floor drain screws! I thought the flies were suppose to be on the outside of the screen. I'll count the flies first!:rolleyes:
