Besides engine placement, is the Prostar 205 the same hull as the 205V hull?

Same hull from 96--2000 direct drive 205. Above the deck is obviously different.

someone a few years back wrote an in-depth review of the 205 (v) model lines. i used to have a 1999 205v which was also the original xstar hull. that hull then became the x2, then the current x1. what i remember, maybe incorrectly, was that the 205 and 205v were DIFFERENT hulls. i would get more info before i proceeded just to be sure. the direct drive 205 had a different hull than the v-drive hull did i think, at least in the mid 90's. hope i helped. i am curious to find out if my memory is correct so i will keep an eye on this thread. good luck. gthlsu

I just found an excellent review by By C36 in the form of a PDF in the TT archives that looks at the modern 205 hull. Same hull from 1996 until 2011, i.e. the PS205, PS205V, MS205, Orig Xstar, orig X2, and current X1 are the same hull. The upper deck of course changed over the years, including in the orig PS 205 in 1999. But the lower hull, if I am reading the article correctly, has not changed.

That is correct. Longest used MC hull in the history of the company.

something still makes me think i read on here that the earliest dd v or that versions of that hull are different from the later v drive versions.
