Just purchased a 1991 Maristar 205. What do I need to remove to check the rudder and shaft packing? Remove rear seat and center flooring?

Thanks for the assistance.

I don't know about the Maristar's. I just saw that no one has responded and give you a bump hopefully one of the experienced guys will come around to help out. I know in my boat ('85 SS) the rear seat, center flooring and the gas tank had to come out to get to all of it. I doubt it'll be that way for you. Good luck and welcome! BTW, where in the souteast are you? We've got a lot of new people on here from the southeast. I'm in Murfreesboro TN myself.

Yep. The motor box is attached to the middle flooring. I removed both floor and motor box, together. There was a thread from a member, who installed an 8 inch port cover/hatch.
Which is next winters project. You might want to try searching for the thread.

Oops. Just saw Maristar. I have a Prostar 205, might be the same.

Maristar 205? There was a Maristar 210 and 240, but no 205. You mean a prostar 205?
