This boat is listed for sale as a 1997 205. The graphics look like it says 209 and to me don't look like 1997 graphics. Just curious as what year these graphics are from. Thanks

Yeap, most likely a '97. I had a '95 with the exact same color scheme. Have the sell send you the hull number and you will know for sure. The last 2 digits should be 97.

Was your '95 a PS190? IIRC, the boat pictured would have to be a '96 or newer. MC changed to that hull design in '95 on the 190 only, but not the open bow till '96. My guess is its a '96 or '97, but just guessing...

Mine was a '95. Yes, MC did change the hull on the 205 in '96. I believe the same hull was used from '96 to '98 (or '97). I am pretty sure the boat in those pictures above is a '97 since that color scheme was not available in '96

Sorry, I did not answer your question completely.

Mine was a '95 PS205.

Here is a pic. I really miss that boat.

That is either a 96 or 97. Hull was the same through 2000. Gel lines changed a bit in 98 as did the horsepower rating of the TBI engine. Somebody just put a 209 decal on it (probably because the ones for the 205 are MIA at this point).

I guess I had just never seen those graphics on the rear on any other '97. So those are '97 graphics?

The PS 205 graphics look like this, and on that year model, would say "Electronic Fuel Injection" beneath them.

Nice boat! You had the old hull then. Still got mine as I'm STILL not ready to give up that slalom wake. EastTX, do you miss that wake yet over your In-Law boat?

I will always prefer the 1st Generation 205 wake to my boat in law's, but no matter the boat, I'm pretty happy when I'm behind it.

I think I felt that way too till I checked out Goin' Broke's Best Surf Boat thread: http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=19505
I see multiple shoulder dislocations in my future behind any of those boats in a slalom course :D ...but I guess behind any boat is still better than behind my desk on any given day...:cool:
