Nice boat! I really love the way those Safe-T-Tops look on the MCs.

Try Rambo Marine in Alabama. They seem to have a lot of old parts lying around.

Beautiful boat!!! I just bought my first MC last week. 1994 Prostar 190. I have always wanted a MC since I was a kid. At 24 I finally got one. I love that safe-t-top as well. It just gives it that little bit extra. I dont know how to describe it. You all know what I mean.

what's the function of the T-top ? is it just to smack your head on every time you turn around ?

congrats on the "new" boat!

I can't begin to imagine the pull it has with the LT-1 coupled to the Slot!

Talk about a tractor!

Don't give up on the hydro-rails, someone probably has a box full of them on a shelf and doesn't realize what they're for.

One thing I would check out is the hole on the bottom of the left tube of your trailer where the brake line comes out. Make sure someone didn't get too carried away with the blow torch when they cut the hole.

Mine was cut way too big, too close to the radius of the tube and it was cracked about an inch and a half up both sides. Luckily I caught it before my trailer cracked in half......

Awesome boat!!
I really wish MC still made Safe-T-Tops just to be unique, but waterskiing isn't their first priority. [The Safe-T-Top© has a net that goes across it to protect the driver and any passengers from the rope after a hard fall]

Looks like you got a real gem! You can see the shine across the lot! Congrats.

Like Brian said, just start calling dealers, Rambo, MC Charlotte, BAWS, Chicago, etc. Someone is bound to have a couple of rails lying around.

And if none of those usual suspects have them keep calling around. There has got to be a dealer out there with a set. I was looking for a replacement temp gauge for my '97 which is no longer made. Took me calling about 10 dealers before I found a dealer in California that still had one left on the shelf.

I will second that on the trailer. I had to get a new trailer for my boat.

You'll love the LT-1. 500+ hours on mine and still strong as ever.

Congrats.
