I think I'm going to watch this one carefully.....might finally have found my project boat.

I think I've seen it posted for sale before:

Anyone know the rated HP? Finding an outboard at a reasonable price might be challenging.

Makes you wonder whether or not he found a Major problem.. Could just be a basket case.. Finding a good motor could get expensive as well..

The seller is a member here, I looked in to the boat last fall.

It's more than likely a jump boat! As in long distance skier jumping, not for jumping a ramp with the boat.

Did the jump boats have tracking fins? I thought they were quite a bit smaller.

Yeah, that may not be a jumper if it has tracking fins. Doesn't mix well with ramps.

This boat is not a jump boat, it is an early "ProStar 200" as far as I can tell.

As in long distance skier jumping, not for jumping a ramp with the boat. The fins would be needed because of the jumpers extreme pull, which is much more severe than slalom.

These early 80's MasterCraft where born from Rob wanting to produce an OB MasteCraft. Just like the I/O Configuration that has been seen now and again. In 1986 MC produced a OB that went into use at the Gardens. Ended up being a canal cruzier for security and was rigged w/ a 90 HP Johnson. The 87 88 year was the years that MC went to a specfic boat for long distance jumping. The tour liked them because of instant exceleration to the jump. A PS 190 was modified and approx 6 in to a foot was added. That was the BIG leap in long distance jumping. Back then there where 2 legs that where judged in jumping. Entry and exit. It had to average 35 MPH. A driver could enter the jump course at a HOT 39 MPH then back off the 32 or 33 averagin 35 MPH.

Today's boat, especially Freddy's Night Mare boat has brought jumping back the the forefront or the next level. More HP, more consistant speed etc. Now there are 4 legs to a jump course and the speed must be much more consistant and within tolerance.

The JUMP BOATS that members speak of are the boats that orignated at Tommy Bartlets and then at the gardens that actually went over the jump. Very Flat bottoms and the motor would KICK up on them not to damage the jump surface. You can get a good view of them in Caddy Shack...those are the ones.

Hope this helps
