I think the request was for more photos on TT, not more facebook links as some of us rather not go there. :confused: It's not that difficult a task to post them here.

The trailer color has me confused, a bit. Would have been nice if it match the stripe on the boat.

Not the original motorbox that one is from a late 80s boat?

Boat looks pretty darn good. Not sure about those tires. Probably LT truck tires......hopefully not P Metric.....

I think it's the correct cover. It just looks different reupholstered. Here's a stock one:

TPH,

I see the speaker box added by your observer's seat. How is it anchored? I plan to add speakers in that same location of my 88 ProStar 200 and the interior is laid out the same as yours.

Thanks

In an 88 PS 190 the speakers cut outs are already there. You just need to cut the vinyl in the combing pads. Look near the back of teh combing pad in the large area by the grab rail

See if there are already there

Please don't direct me to Facebook pages. If you come to a boating forum then just post the pics here. I used to come here for some insight and laughs, I won't and don't go to fb for that.

The boat in the picture is not mine. Just one I looked at a while ago. I didn't know that MC used that same interior as late as 1988 on the outboard model. I do own an '83. If I were to add speakers I would buy outdoor speakers with brackets and tuck them up under the gunnels as tight as possible:

I think his '88 is an outboard with the '82 - '86 Prostar style interior.

Yes, the 87 and 88 PS 200's used the deck and interior of the previous generation inboards. I have a pair of those Bose Speakers under my patio. Too bad they quit making them they work rather well. May try the current style.

Thanks,

Mike

You're correct on my boat. Last year for that interior with the outboard. What have you seen for speaker installations with this style interior? There are two factory installed 6x9 Speakers behind the rear seat/fiberglass panel. Just need need to a pair of speakers towards the front.

Thanks for the pics. They look like the best solutions for the PS 200.
