Just got our new (to us) Prostar 197. It's an 04 sammy duvall edition with the MCX. Was hoping to have it in the water today or yesterday, but as you can see on the roof it snowed last night. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to take it out for a spin and get it on the lift! So far I've noticed a pretty significant scum on the bottom that I've been trying to work off with some elbow grease and vinegar. I think a rotary polisher would be the best bet, but might just worry about it in the fall.

Nice boat. Toilet bowl cleaner will get the scum off the bottom.

Awesome, I love that color scheme. A little snow never hurt anyone, get out there and tear it up.

Put it in a spary bottle, spray it on on wait a minute and wash all the junk off. Make sure to wax afterwards.

Thanks for the nice comments! I'll have to swing by a marina and look for some of those cleaners and some wax.

Congrats...nice boat. I use this product....

It is super easy to use and your hull looks like new in about 10 minutes. Its a bit nasty to work with so wear gloves and eye protection. Truly amazing stuff though.

Got it in the water today, will have a pic tomorrow! My neighbor was putting his PS197 at the same time as me (represent!) Hopefully going skiing later this week if I find a drysuit, but the forecast calls for snow??

Here are some pics on the lift. Got the canopy on right after this, and just in time as we're supposed to get 2-4 inches tomorrow.

And thanks for all the responses on the scum! I think i'm going to handle it in the offseason and enjoy the honeymoon phase for now :)
