Oh... I get it. Thanks Air! But what's the advantage of being an outboard? Maybe LarryP's question is the most interesting-- How do these boats ski/board? I see a pylon and a tower?

Zero wake, flat table & they haul ***..... top speeds of 55 or 60+.

They are supposed to be some of the best wakes out there for barefoot riders. Fast accelleration, and high top end with flat wakes! I'll post some pics of the barefoot 200 in action later on.

Some footers will use tower or pylon, helps make back deep water starts and some tricks eaiser. Also helps when barefoot jumping and doing inverts.

I think if I didnít have kids I would own one. Gotta love the top end.

But with kids its nice to have the prop tucked under the boat..

As to the ski question, nice wake, but doesn't track like a straight drive.

A friend of mine in town has one. My opinions:

Pros:
- Good for salt water-brackish water
- Good for barefooting
- Lots of room (no engine box)
- Good for wakeboarding (trim up the motor)
- Don't need a prop guard trailer
- Don't have to worry about running a ground

Cons:
- Slalom wake isn't even in the same ball park
- Weak hull shot
- Steers, well like a boat
- 2 stroke smoke smell
- Hard to get in and out of in the water
- Engine clearance

[QUOTE=BriEOD]A friend of mine in town has one. My opinions:


Cons:
- Slalom wake isn't even in the same ball park
The wake at 34 mph on a shortened rope is good but the boat was not made for tournaments, so changing ropes lengths and the curls do not go hand in hand.

- Weak hull shot
Come to Wisconsin this summer. I'll pull your arms right out of your sockets. We can pull three long deeps with not much drag. Much quicker than any LT1 or 285hp my buddies have.

- Steers, well like a boat
Yep, and even has reverse!

- 2 stroke smoke smell
Engine must need maintenance. Ours rarely smokes. Only on cold morning starts.


- Hard to get in and out of in the water
Why? Never had any problems with ours.

I wouldnt mind owning one of these. The top end must be awesome. As for the comments about hole shot, I have rode in some 200-250hp outboards and I wouldn't want to drag race one with my boat if we were racing for pinks! :D I could see where the tracking might not be as good though

A buddy of mine just sold his comp bass boat. 250 hp, 70 mph top end out of a 17' boat. I raced him a couple times with my '95 TBI 190. I would barely take him 0 to 25-30ish. Then he would pull away & never look back.

That we empty though. I always told him that I wanted to do the same thing with a 200lb slalom skier at the end of the rope.

by the way - I'm not kicking OB's here. If I was a serious footer (opposed to the "when I'm too tired to slalom), I would want one of these myself.

As the hole shot goes, it's not so much about get up and go as with a race. It's about getting on plane quickly with torque to get the skier up. An outboard will, of course, have more top end. I can't speak to the hole shot of an outboard from a skier's perspective though.

There is one pulling "toobers" off of the coast of Aruba. Saw it there on the honeymoon. Went deepsea fishing with the guy who used to own it, said it was a headache to maintain. However, after watching the idiots drive around out there I think it was more user error than mechnical error. Those cats scared me the whole time I sat on the beach and drank beer.

There is a guy on Sammamish who has a 19' Ski Sanger with like a 200+ horse outboard, high 5 prop, etc. When I installed my 4 blade SS prop, I raced him & another buddy with a '96 190 w/ LT1 & 3 blade OJ prop. I have the 275 horse 350 TBI & about 800 lbs of ballast....... still beat them both off the line. The Ski Sanger walked away from us at about 15 or 20 mph then just kept on going. I stayed in front of the LT1 till about 30 mph, then he crawled past me.
We didn't do the same race prior to the 4 blade SS prop install but I'm sure thats what kept me in the running at all.

Sorry BriEOD,

Had a bad morning and saw this and had to vent. :mad:

The BF200 was made for barefooting...period. It can be altered to accomodate aggressive slalom skiers and also wakeboarders. I've seen alot of awesome tricks done off an outboard when we we at Seipel's in Florida a few years back. So it's not really the boat, it the person behind the boat. Inboards are great...if we to buy a new boat, I would probably buy a 190 with a tower with the 8.1 liter. Alot of people who own inboards think outboards are just family boats...if they saw ours, their opinions would quickly change.

Apologies go out for snapping...

Hey ! I live in Florida and even went up to Michigan to get my Powerstar 200. It was worth the trip and shipping it. I have to have an outboard due to brackish,salt and shallow water here and up in Massachusetts where I spend the Summer. The open bow is the best (I have kids) and this is my first Mastercraft.To me,it is the best boat I could ever own.Unless they make a new Powerstar version soon. I sit there and just look at it. I can't believe I finally own a Mastercraft ! Yes !
I have talked to alot of the pro barefooters on-line and they have mixed feelings about this boat.Porposing issues,speed. They all now own the Malibu inboards or Flightcraft.They want to go really,really fast.
This is a great boat ! It is plenty fast, 55 ! I will keep it forever ! A great slalom and barefoot boat ! Oh yeh,it's also a Mastercraft ! As Stan Lee (creator of Spiderman) would say...Nuff Said !

Hey Sizzler how is the wake behind the X9 for footin'?? What length rope do you run and how is the table?? My new 209 is due to arrive this week and will be making some BF runs memorial weekend and want to be prepared............

We bought a used Powerstar last fall and I have a stereo and four speakers to install but I am not sure where the front set should go. The back has cutouts already behind the side pad but I can't find any prelocated spot for the front set.
The shop said they go in the side pads of the open bow but that seems very odd and also difficult. I am thinking the open gel surface just ahead of those pads but am not thrilled about cutting a big hole in a spot that I am not sure about.

Could any current or former Powerstar owners provide the actual location for the front speakers.

I am super happy with the way the Powerstar pulls slalom and wakeboard. With a 19 inch High Five it pulls hard enough that I can't hold it back and I can get it real close to 60 but it is really wound out at that point. I had a little 17 ft Baja with a 150 Merc that took some skill on the drivers part to fight the pull but it had virtually no wake, nil and was awesome to ski behind. I could never figure out why inboard guys bragged about how perfect the wakes were behind their boats. The Powerstar is somewhere in between with a more rounded shape at 34 MPH.

The main reason we made the switch was for the room for the growing passenger list of friends and kids. It is rated for 8 people but has seating for 12 and I bet you could squeeze in 15 without getting to cramped.


I think if I didnít have kids I would own one. Gotta love the top end.

But with kids its nice to have the prop tucked under the boat..



I grew up on the lake and nobody that I knew had an inboard. We still have all our fingers and toes and no big frankenstein scars either.
An inboard might be a little safer but it is not a jet. That prop is still down there chopping away waiting for a careless moment.

David,

We will be up at our cottage this weekend and I will get you pics of the speaker locations on our BF200. The holes should be similar. If not, they will at least give you some ideas.

PM me on Friday so I don't forget. I am writing a note in my book so I won't forget ;)

I have a Powerstar 200 and I thought about putting front speakers in but never could find a precut hole behind the seat. You can run your hand behind the front seat and see if you can feel a cut out area. I never could so just left well enough alone. Let us know what you find out. :popcorn:

Hey guys, my boat is a little older than yours. However, this winter I upgraded my stereo big time (I'm not on the same planet as Diesel). I had holes in the back already from the factory. But, their weren't any holes in the front. I gave it a lot of thought on where to mount: engine box, dash, etc. I still found the best places is those gunnel pads. So, I bit the big one and made holes. I removed the gunnels from the boat. Marked the circle with a sharpie on the upholestry and used a utility knife to cut and remove the foam and upholestry. I drilled a started hole and then used a jig saw to cut out the hole in the marine plywood. Next, I drilled some pilot holes for the mounting screws and installed the speaker. Lastly, I had to cut a hold in the fiberglass behind the where the gunnel pad mounts for the magnet to clear. I just used a jig saw. It took a little time but turned out pretty well.

Here's a shot on the starboard side (I had removed the drivers seat).

the porposing was a known problem. We bought our 98 new in 2000...first time out it was unbearable. Mastercraft paid to have it taken to the factory and they fixed it by putting a 2 inch piece of fiberglass on the back of the hull

great boat though. Fastest out of the hole great wakes for anything. Low at high speeds for footing/slalom, and then pretty decent for wakeboarding at around 20mph (can do flips so no saying its not a big wake) And when your done for the day the maintenance is minimal and it will last forever as oppose to my friends malibu sunsetter?? with a vdrive that has corrosion and stuff inside the coolant tubes all these problems. Outboards the way to go.

I'm a keen 'footer, skied with Scarpa in Florida among others. Love the sport. 8 Years ago a mate in England had a Powerstar, gorgeous boat and good all rounder. Well 3 years ago I tried to buy a Powerstar here in the UK but couldn't get one.

I got English company Sportique to modify their 20ft XLR inboard hull to take an outboard bracket.

Awesome boat to foot with. We use a 190 Prostar running on LPG in our ski school, okay to practice footin shortline on Ja Skis but dont give me a good enough pull for the serious stuff. Lovely boat for slalom and boarding etc and sooooo much cheaper to run than the 225Yam on the barefoot boat :D

While that may be true, for those who want a newer boat it is a good option. Their boats may not have the bells and whistles but they know how to build strong reliable boats that ski teams rely on every day. I looked into getting one, but found a lower cost used inboard.

I'm not pissed off, I'm laughing my azz off actually.

My point with the Dyna-Ski was that if someone wanted an open bow, outboard ski boat there are options. Nobody is going to pay that absurd price of yours, I'm not in the market for one so I especially do not care, just sharing my thoughts with the forum. The Barefoot 200 is a far superior performing boat than the PowerStar anyway, it really isn't worth much...

Go sack out your PowerStar, crank the tunes and enjoy the water fool.

excellent post, your a class act , yes the barefoot 200 is better footin boat it was designed to be but doesnt really compare to the general all around use the powerstar was designed for, i owned a barefoot 200 for 5 years before my current ride, as I said before i really didnt expect a buyer at my asking price but ya never know some people will pay absurd prices for stuff if they want it and can swing it, im going to leave it alone now i dont want to upset the solid forum members , i could finish with a few insults but i wont go there either

I love my 1990 ProStar200. Great for skiing, footing and even wakeboarding. Mine is powered by a 1996 225hp Johnson. Lots of room for gear, coolers and the family. Come on up and I will take you for a pull.

What's so great about having a rear facing speedometer? :confused: My BF200 has 3 rear facing speedometers.

How is the driver suppose to know how fast he is going if the speedometer is facing forward? :uglyhamme

I think the person selling this boat meant to say that the boat comes with the optional speedometer located on the back panel (which faces forward) and is used by judges when sitting in the optional jump seats. :cool:

Thanks TX. Got it listed in several places.

We are selling our lake home but have plans to rebuild on a empty lake lot in the next 2 or 3 years. So, instead of storing this boat I'm going to sell and look for a 197 when the house is finished.

When I was selling, nothing got more hits than ebay. I ultimately sold the boat to someone on here, but had an ebay buyer lined up when that happened. Buy it now/best offer listing works well. You'll get a bunch of low ballers, but the exposure will bring some real buyers, too.
