I've got a friend who's TRYING to sell his 93 ProStar. Don't shoot the messenger, I KNOW how bad it looks! He'll consider any reasonable offer, I think. Talked to him yesterday, and I think I convinced him to sell it 'as is'. It would make somebody a great project boat. Ya'll ready for this?!8p

Actually that boat is in about as good of shape as my boat was when I got it. "IF" you can do most of the work yourself and you take the time to re-work and not buy new parts on the boat and salvage what ever you can you can get it back to running pretty cheap. It took me roughly 3 months and alot of tiresome "what could it be" hours to figure out all the little problems with my boat but it is running and I have not had a single problem with it to date. I have about $2500 in my 1989 Mastercraft 190 and am ready for summer to be here so I can log some more hours on it !!!! By the way mine was completely flooded. Water up to the dash but luckily not above the carberator.

You would be surprised. I am restoring a 90 Maristar that was in similar shape. These boats are built well. I good buffer, new carpet and some upholstery and it will look like new. I knew the motor was in good shape so I bought it. My wife was a little surprised when I brought home our "new" boat, but she has fallen in love with it too. :rolleyes: file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/cwelsh.LAB/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/DSCN0767.jpg

I have just talked to 'Rabbit'. he's NOT intrested in taking a $1000 or even 2000, for that matter. He doesn't think it will take as much to restore it, as I have been telling him it will cost. Also says the boat will sit there and rot even futher if somebody want to buy it and make it into a bar!

Jimmauburn
02-03-2009, 11:55 AM
I personally would offer tops of $3000 for the boat as it sits. It is worth on the good side maybe $8500 - 9000 if you put it back in working order and got it back to shining and running again. Hull looks to be good and really you won't know about the motor until you dig in. I paid $1500 for my '89 and I have a good $1000 in replacement and rebuilt parts. I have pics of what it looked like with the water in the hull. So for $2500 plus maybe a good two weeks (3 hours a day, 6-8 on weekends) is what I have in my boat. It can be done IF you are willing to devote the effort.

Eddie,

Tell Rabbit to first punch himself in the balls for allowing that to happen and then tell him if he thinks that's worth 2000 he'd better go get a drug screen.

It would cost three grand to turn that thing into a salad bar :rolleyes:

A rather unfortunate attitude. It's obvious that the owner doesn't care about the boat. I'd say if he really needed the money, there would be some willingness for negotiation. You can't get people to pay you $6000 for a boat that looks like that. Especially when you have no idea if it runs and/or drives. I'd think you'd at least need to vacuum out the leaves first. Where's the argument that it's worth more? Oh well, too bad.

I have not seen this guy in YEARS! i used to ski with him back in the early 90's down in Orange Park, Fla. He used to keep his stuff in pretty good shape. I guess he lost ALL the enthusiasm he had for water sports. He was a pretty good footer too IIRC. That boat when it was new, was BEAUTIFUL! I just can't believe he let this get as bad as it is. I told him NOT to come on here and look at this cause everybody was and still is, bashing the hell out of him for mistreating that boat. I don't think he understands the passion that the peeps on here have for their MC's!

Sorry, Eddie. I love 93's, but that thing is pathetic. In all seriousness, I will give him $250 and drive down there and get it if he puts some new trailer tires and a spare on it so I can have a shot of making it home. I haven't read the entire thread, but I feel confident that that could be seen as a serious offer by comparison. Maybe 303 will sponsor my restoration.

/edit. Okay, so someone offered more. It will rot. It's off to a great start. Too bad. I'd have made it shine.

Yeah, at least it isn't orange, right.

Parts might fetch some $$. Windshield looks pretty good except for the decal. Mirror, gauges, dash, glove box lid. Trailer, if properly refurbished (and assuming against great odds that it doesn't have some serious salt corrosion, might get somebody a couple of hundred bucks profit. Seat bases, lifting rings, etc.

Maybe worth $500 without considering if someone might buy a stripped hull that still smelled of Sno Bol.

In Phillidelphia, it's worth fifty bucks.

I can find a real buyer in Alabama if he is really gonna get rid of it without asking for a running boat price. What does he think he would ask for the boat in real dollars (no daydreaming of $6000 - 7000) ?? I know someone who wants a project boat and he might just be what your friend needs to "SAVE" that boat. Message me and I will call him this morning.

If you have the boat slung on and off the trailer, see if you can spray the boat off with some fresh stuff before they dump it back on the trailer. I had a few rust marks just from dripping salt on my old boat. Just a little food for though!

That is one of the best ways, just make sure you rinse the bilges, etc. Also, get the engine up to operating temperature.

Good tips. I wouldn't have thought of the bilges and bringing it to operating temp. thanks

SkiDog

One of the things I used to do when I finished washing the inside and outside of the boat, I'd fill up my bucket with soapy water again and dump the whole bucket into the bilge, then rinse it out.

If you're asking if the boat is still available, I don't think any money has changed hands YET, so I would think it is. His bottom dollar is $3000.00 PM me if you wanna call the owner. Where in the southeast are you?

Same motor, it will have the GT-40 heads. But we're going back with flat-top pistons, small lift roller cam and rockers and new dual plain alum. intake plus some ignition work. Also punching the block out to 30 over and of course all new bearings.

We're not going to get to crazy with it, keeping it around 400hp.

Not repairable?

No, the freeze cracks in them go form one end of the head to the other right under the ext. ports.

Got bored while waiting today. So I painted to water pump to see how the color of the engine and trailer were gonna turn out.

Alittle on the dark side from what I was going for...

I got a set of cracked GT-40 heads if anybody needs them!

DAMN! That his terrible those things are pretty expensive if you buy them new. I think they are like $1k plus at skidim.

Sorry to hear it.

$2,200 a set from skidim I think.

They are nowhere near worth that. They are actually a dime a dozen.

The machine shop guy has a set of GT-40p ready to bolt on for $350.00 for the set.

$900.00 at summitracing.com will get you a set that will run circles around GT-40 and GT-40p both.

I might not be able to use the valve covers since my brother ordered roller rockers for this engine. So I might be able to cut you a deal on these.
