Within a few days I will be heading from New Jersey to Arkansas with nothing in tow.

Anyone need anything hauled going that direction? (It would help me pay for gas/expenses)
I will be passing thru PA, VA, TN to my final destination near Little Rock, AR.

Coming home with a new toy! :D

Let me just say it's a Mastercraft but she's a bit unique. :D

After I get back with her I'll start another thread with pics. ;)

Jimmies1, how far are you from Little Rock?

@ Jimmies1, I'd love to check out your car biz but I'm on a bit of a time crunch. Maybe next time and you can take me on a nice road test in a GT40 or something! :D

mayo, worth the wait for the pics.......you'll see! ;)

I'm like a little kid on Christmas Eve! :cool:

I'm guessing it is an X2.

Knowing Dave, and the fact he has a pretty kickin XStar already, I would think this might be a really old MC, perhaps pre1970. That's a really long way to go for a boat, unless it was something really special.

Safe trip Dave. Post pics along the way.

The sentence above is pretty accurate KG.

I'll have to post pics when I get back since I'm still living in the stone age with no smart phone!

Would you be picking up something from the barn of Joe Whisenhunt?

Previous owner of mastercraft boats of Arkansas ( mcboats.com ). Bought my first mastercraft from him many years ago. Hell of a guy!

Ok so after 3 days on the road, over 2500 miles (including a quick visit to the MC factory) and using 180 gals of gas I'M BACK!

My (new to me) 25th anniversary 1993 Prostar 190 Limited

(gelcoat needs some polishing to restore that "like new" shine, and the boat needs a complete detail but it's all original including the interior)

I guess I wouldn't have tipped off anyone before I had possession of that boat either. Looks like a heck of a find.

Nice find Dave. What are you doing with the XStar, I might be in the market in the spring...

Table Rocker

Well done!! I love that boat. I thought it was in Springdale though. I am glad someone on here bought it.

Can i get a finders fee? (http://mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?p=797456#post797456)

Actually your post is what started my curiousity about this boat, so thank you sir!
This should serve as a warning to others that this forum can be dangerous!
I picked it up in Conway but the owner moved to Springdale.

I remember seeing pics of that boat from the Arkansas reunion back around 2000. Great find, I wish Harold still was on here, he could tell you more about that boat.

Nice find Dave. A PS190 and a X-star. You must be in MC heaven.

Wow Dave! That's a beautiful boat. Will you use it in the Delaware at your normal spot or go elsewhere? It's going to be 39 this Sat-maybe a few quick runs before the river freezes over!:D

I like the new boat. I always wondered though, do you climb under or over the "roll bar/Headache rack?"

I'll hit the Delaware with it next year, maybe the Rancocas Creek and also Port Indian in Norristown PA. Looking forward to towing it to the northeast MC reunion @ Lake George too.
I water tested it last weekend in Arkansas so this weekend it gets the oil changed and then I will winterize her. I have all winter to "tinker" with it in the garage.
