Here is my current winter project. It is a 1985 prostar 200 that was in need of some TLC. I will continue to post pictures of my progress as the weeks go on. I hope this helps out you guys as much as your threads have helped me. Hope you enjoy the pics.

Looks like it will be a great project boat. Good luck and post many many photos of your progress. Have you posted the specs on this particular boat before? 1985? It appears that someone has slapped on the graphics of an 86' vintage.

Here are some pics of the trailer progress. Trailer has been sanded and painted with new winch, tongue, and tongue lift. Fenders have been sanded and still need some more bondo work done to them. Come spring when the garage door can be open they will get a fresh coat of paint.

I was thinking the same. But the 83-86 19 skier had the square windsheild. It could be that the 85 200 also used the rainbow. Jim@baws will shure let us know.

I remember this boat, I was going with a guy to buy it and then you bought it the day before we could go. Looks like a fun project, be sure to post a lot of pics!

jdubwall

I will get some more pic posted tomorrow, from diging into this boat the title when i bought it said it was an 86 but when I got the boat home checked the vin# it ended in 85. The boat used to be blue. I will post some pictures of the nics in it and you can visually see that the boat was blue and was sprayed white. After I ripped the carpet out I noticed that there was repair done to the driver side rail. The boat was used in the Tommy Bartlett show so the only thing i can think of is it was damaged at the show in 85 they had it repaired and sprayed white and put the 86 decals on it to advertise the new 86 look. Thats the only thing I can put together with the boat. Hope you guys like the thread... Like I said i will put more pics up tomorrow.

If the boat was in the Tommy Bartlett show in '85-'86 I probably saw it in a performance. My kids were toddlers, ages 1 and 3. My my most vivid memory was that both kids fell asleep (it was an evening show) and we had to carry both of them back to the motel. The three year old had a tantrum, screamed bloody murder the whole time. It was the longest three block walk of my life!

If it's an 85, it should then have stripes running through the hull sides and top deck!

Here are a few pics after I got the seats out! Took the center boards out so I could get at the gas tank. Floor boards are soft and rotten, and the boards that hold the gas tank in were rotten.

a 1250 PSI pressure washer w/ a WIDE WAND will do wonders on the carpet and the bildge

Gas tank is out, fuel line from tank to motor needs to be replaced.... Its in really rough shape.... Should have been done a while ago. But its coming along.

jdubwall
02-12-2010, 05:43 PM
LOL thats what my brother told me.... Take it to the car wash and give it a god pressure wash.... That was the plan but I figured the center boards needed to be replaced with new carpet, and the carpet had oil soaked in it back by the oil overflow pressure tank... So I decided to rip it out and replace with new.

jdubwall
02-12-2010, 05:48 PM
After I got the boards up I noticed a good crack in the center floor (tunnel area).. The floor is solid underneath and on top.. I think/pretty sure its just the gel coat that is cracked... Once it gets warm enough out where i can have the garage open I'm gonna epoxy it with some fiberglass mesh....

jdubwall
02-12-2010, 05:56 PM
Ok, carpet is finally out..... it was a job and a half but I had the mrs. help on this one so we got it done within a few hours. I had to be really careful pulling the carpet out because i wanted to use them as a template for the new carpet. It was in rough shape especially around the seats and stringers where people mainly walked. We used paint scrappers to get the worst of the glue off, well actually I did most of the scrapping, gave the orbital sander to the wife and she sanded the one stringer while i scraped the other... Worked really good.... She's a sport ;) and a barefooter now!!! Gotta love it.

jdubwall
02-12-2010, 05:59 PM
? if you look in the pic above the back portion of the boat tunnel is a yellow/milky/tan color... Almost looks like it was painted at one point, but its too hard to be paint.... Was it epoxied at some point? It was done with a paint brush, don't know if its factory or not.... assuming its not...

jdubwall
02-12-2010, 06:11 PM
Alright, here is what I did with the dash... I noticed some guys on here decided to paint there dashes... I wanted to keep it as original as possible, but couldn't leave the old wood look to it because it was all faded chipping and falling apart.... If anyone knows where I could find parts for the wood look that would be GREAT... because i like the old original look the best... Don't have time now to use real wood and cut a new face plate... Sometime maybe ;) This works for me for now.. I'm really happy with how it turned out.... I basically took the dash apart and used an orbital sander and very carefully sanded the laminate wood look off with 60 grit. Then sanded the gel coat with 400, 800, 1000 grit sand paper and buffed it out...

thatsmrmastercraft
02-12-2010, 06:16 PM
The old woodgrain was just adhesive vinyl, same as the dash on my '77. Any good sign shop can get you a piece of vinyl to put on there.

jdubwall
02-12-2010, 06:29 PM
Here are a few pics of the dash ripped apart too. I was wiring the boat this particular weekend... Got the front lights & back lights rewired, and the bilge pump wired with new switches. There is a pic of the fuse panel, I remember reading on here someone was looking for a pic of it so i made sure to get one when i was working on it... Not much too it... There is a pos + terminal that runs hot where the fuses are and in the bottom right had corner is the neg - grounds for all of the wiring. Run the hot to switch, the ground to the switch and the acc to the switch and your all set.... Hope this helps who ever is looking for it!!!!

jdubwall
02-12-2010, 06:53 PM
85 it is..... The vin ends in 85.... Here are some more pics of the nicks in the boat..... It was white and blue at some point... the top deck and side hulls indicate blue and also the hull of the boat indicates blue too..... Anyone have anythoughts on this one..... If you look at the pics of the dash you can see two distinct areas of white around the edges..... underneath the very top layer of white is a gray color, its not thick at all... I'm pretty sure it is a primer that was put down before they sprayed the new white gel coat on. Is anyone familiar with spraying gelcoat over previous gel? do they prime it?

jdubwall

Miss Rita

It's very hard to spray new gelcoat over old gelcoat and get a smooth finish. Perhaps they painted it with polyurethane paint? I assume that you're going to paint it?

jdubwall
02-12-2010, 07:13 PM
Ya thats what i hear..... Thats why i'm curious about the gray color between the two whites.... I am 100% positive its gelcoat....... Its not polyurethane paint..... This year my plan is to just get the interior done and the essentials patched fixed get the new front end on the motor (my brother is a marine mech. and got a front half off of a 200 merc to attach to my 150. Both the 200 and 150's have a 2.4L big block so it will bolt right on.... Not a bad upgrade for $350.. Got a tuner for the exhaust too... it will be a 225 when we're done)...Side tracked...SRY... But yes i plan to use a top-side polyurethane paint next year.... The gelcoat on there is just odd to me????

jdubwall
02-12-2010, 07:19 PM
The first pic of the side rail there was a nick and i noticed the grey underneath, so i sanded it with 400grit and there is more gray. (Note The top white layer is very thin and the gray is even thinner, its basically equivalent to one coat of paint.) When I sanded through the gray there is a nice white gel underneath.... FYI when i sand the top white layer its chalky, so i know its gel....

I think/pretty sure its just the gel coat that is cracked... Once it gets warm enough out where i can have the garage open I'm gonna epoxy it with some fiberglass mesh....

It doesnt look look like the crack is just in the gel to me. Is that the hull or is that pan set down into it? Either way, the proper repair would involve grinding the gel off in that area and repairing with glass. Glass will not stick as good to the old gel as it will to the glass below it.

jdubwall
02-15-2010, 06:59 PM
Its the bottom/tunnel part of the hull..... There are no cracks underneath the boat i looked thoroughly to make sure. What you mean by (pan set down into it)? I will grind the glass off to get to the base Glass..... Thanks for the useful info.... My other question is the tunnel area of the boat has some spider glass cracks in them some of them are from me walking in the tunnel area while working on the boat.... whats the best way to fix this? Epoxy/Paint/? Anyone have any good thoughts for me? Thanks again

Unfortunately, it may be worse than you think. I have seen this type of crack in the bilge area and what I found out is not too nice. There is actually wood between the bilge pan and the hull. If water gets between the bilge and the hull it saturates the wood and when it freezes in the winter you get this type of crack. I am told that the bilge pan shows the cracks first as it is not as strong as the hull. The ice forces the bilge pan up and causes the cracking.

You need to get the water out of this cavity before fixing the cracks or they will return again.

I thought that MC stopped using wood in their boats midyear 1983. Can anyone else elaborate on this?

jdubwall
02-16-2010, 01:44 AM
Thanks for the info... I wasn't aware of that, but it makes sense if there is wood under there the top is going to crack first.... It is completely dried out but I'm going to sand down the gelcoat and get to the glass and make sure all is clean and dry before I make the repair... I really appreciate the imput guys..... Keep them coming... Here is the picture i attached before but I indicated where the crack is exactly...

Keep them coming... Here is the picture i attached before but I indicated where the crack is exactly...

Just curious, how do you know that it is dried out? The only way to tell is to cut an access hole/panel in the bilge pan to inspect the wood and the space below. If you just make the cosmetic repair without fixing the underlying issue, you will end up right back where you are now. If you do cut out an access of some sort, you will need to make it watertight when you are done so that the bilge water does not get into the hole.

Another point to ponder........if, in fact, there is water in this space below the bilge pan, how did it get there? You may want to look closely for any possible points of entry. You are far enough into this project that if there are other underlying issues, it would be cost effective to fix them now.

Please keep us posted with notes and pics as you go!

jdubwall
02-17-2010, 01:42 AM
Its dry from what i can tell..... I have the heat on in the garage when i've been working on it... when i would push next to the crack water would come out.... No water is coming out anymore.... I'm not going to fix this till spring when it warms up so it will dry it up... But like you said i'll never know until i get a better look at it.... I'm gonna sand down the gel and get to the fiberglass and see forsure what it looks like... but as long as the wood in there is dry it should be fine to lay glass over the top... I gotta make sure i get it sealed up good.... How the water got in there is ???? The hull is solid underneath i looked it over thoroughly... so it had to originate from the pan area.... We'll see what happens when i dig in a little further... Thanks for the info I really appreciate it.... keep them coming

03-07-2010, 10:52 AM
I dont know what kind of wood it might have been originally, but if you use MDF that is heavily coated in CPEX preferably, or a similar epoxy works really well as a floor.

Here are just a few pics i took after i cleaned up the hull/waterline/prop on the boat.... I used a hull cleaner called "slimmy grimmy" it took the bulk of the brown off, but it wasn't strong enough to clean the brown from the waterline and restore the prop.... I used a product called "Zing" to clean the prop and waterline... It worked amazing.... I also used it on the rims of the trailer..... They were completely rusted out and didn't look like there was any way to get them back, but the sing cleaned them right up..... i then used some 3M imperial compound and steel wool to them and they shined up great.....

Quick ? maybe jim knows...... I need a new "Pitot Sender" with the mounting bracket for the tube where it enters the transom..... I restored the speedo's this winter and now i need to make sure i have them both working....... I am assuming the previous owners broke it off when they would enter into the boat and decided to just leave it off..... The holes are sealed shut.... The gal i bought it from asked me why they had to speedo's to begin with...LOL I have found a few online but i can't find any with the bracket where the tube enters the transom.... Also are the holes standard on all Pitot's? Any help would be GREAT!!!!

Jim@BAWS
05-08-2010, 03:02 PM
I know that you took the SPEEDOs out to REFURB them. There is TUBING that runs from your dash to a PEEDO tube that is located inside the stern, Behind the access plate. On the bottom of the Peedo there is also tubing that runs through the stern to the Speedo pickup. It is possible that the speedo pick up is clogged. If you take the tubing off, blow air via a compessor backwards though the speedo pickup. Sometime you will hear it clear out. DO NOT USE COMPRESSED air towards the Speedo head. You will blow the diaphram out in the speedometer.

If you use you own lung capacity on the tubing. You should be able to have the speedo registrar between 5-12 MPH....Hope this helps anything else give me a quick call

Thanks

Here, http://www.skidim.com/prodinfo.asp?number=769B are to ones most are using as replacements, but the hole are are a little different, so filling one hole and drilling another is required.

Both speedo's work, i did blow into them and they both move.......

The one that is listed above are the NEWEST upgrade that you can get. Get 2 of them! They WILL NOT line up perfect. You will need to redrill one hole. Fill the other w/ a good marine silicone, marine tex or white gelcoat. Use at least one of the holes as your original hole. That pricing is pretty good. Not a fan of not recommending a dealer vs. a supplier, but that seems to be the norm.

I think its pretty cool that the gas tank is in the floor where the motor is on an inboard. I've only sitting outboards with the gas tank behind the rear seat. Wonder if that effects planing at all, good or bad. Anyone have any imput on that.

thatsmrmastercraft
05-12-2010, 05:44 PM
The outboard MC's with the tank in the floor jump right onto plane, where the rear fuel tank versions had some bow rise to overcome. Of course, this is dependent on fuel levels.

I only had the boat out for a few minutes after i bought it..... Was having some issues with the motor... But when i opened it up from idle the nose never even came out of the water... It was pretty sweet.....

Just to give you guys the heads up i will have pics coming soon, I am about 3/4 the way through ripping the oil injection off the boat, waiting on parts from Iboats that just came today....

LOL nice pic....... Don't worry more pictures to come soon..... I am ripping the oil injection pump out because the late 80's early 90's motors were notorious for having the pumps go out.... When they go its too late..... You end up blowing the motor up..... I would rather just have the assurance of knowing the motor is getting oil especially when i'm going to be running it at 40+ MPH for footin......

You were asking lots of questions about airguides, see the support page on www.airguide.com.au for more information.

You can't buy airguide pickups any more so another brand which can be modified to fit the holes is the way to go.

For the front bench and helm seat it was $350!!! I ended up paying around $375 with shipping... Not a bad price..... No custom work done, i was gonna have them embroider Prostar 200 on the seats but didn't want to pay the extra $75 per seat for it.... i would rather them stay original.....

Like we talked about before if i fiberglass mesh over the top and water continues to seep in there i'm gonna have the same prob.... And it might crack hull side if i reinforce the top side..... I have had the boat out in the sun for a few days and it dried the crack out, so my intentions were to use some marine bondo and cover the crack and bildge pan area with that and see how well it holds up..... When i was working on it friday i noticed some holes drilled further back like a mounting spot for the bilge pump.... I think those holes are where the water got into the wood and saturated it...... Any inputs would be great!!!

More pics, got the gas tank installed and new carpet laid down.......

Looks like you may have turned that one piece of carpet 90 degrees. Doesn't look like the nap is running the same way. But this project is looking great!

Greetings folks. Is there any chance that this is the same boat that was featured in this thread?

http://thunderbay.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehicles-cars-trucks-1985-Mastercraft-ski-boat-W0QQAdIdZ487510697

I don't know how many of these are left (with the same cracked windshield, updated carpet, stripped dash etc.) but there can't be many.

If it's the same boat, anyone know how it managed to get so far north?

Happy investigating!

Bye the way, what you you pay for it as a project boat?
