Here's a picture of my Prostar 209 and my brother's X-Star. They have been winterized for about a month. It will most likely be March before we de-winterize, so it's time to plan out the winter projects. For me, I am refinishing my teak platform, which I'm close to completing. Next, I'm adding 2 Mastercraft tower speakers and a JL Audio Amp. My brother just installed a new Z-5 top. Not sure what else he has in store. What's everyone else doing during this downtime.

Trading mine in. It's cheaper and easier than detailing it.:D

Easy there big boy. The X-Star does have the 450 8.1L and he can take me eventually on the top end speed (Prostar is about 44 - 45 and the X-Star is around 48 I believe). My MCX however, kills the X-STAR on the hole shot. Both are great boats.

Watch Out Little Brother !! You Know that X-Star will leave you in the Wake HA HA !! But of course when we want to Ski, We always have to head to the Prostar !, That wake on the X is a little Intimidating especially since we all learned to wakeboard

Freaky. Almost identical, including the barn.

It will most likely be March before we de-winterize. If your location is somewhere in the 'southeast', why even consider winterizing?
We use our BF200 year round in Central Fla.

Well, it is 23.5 degrees this AM in Dallas. I am sure that it is colder where these guys are. But, it was almost 80 on Sunday. Crazy weather.

Unfortunately, we can have some pretty cold winters, even in the southeast. As a matter of fact it's 26F today with sleet / ice.

That pic was taken 2 months ago the day I winterized both boats.
I do have the MC cover, but I just use a blue tarp (loose) when it's in the barn so it breathes better. Taking the cover this winter to have a soft liner sewn in to prevent gelcoat scratching.

We topped out at 8 today, after a high of 1 yesterday. Plus we're expecting 3 to 6 inches of the white stuff tonight. Gotta love Wisconsin!
