Well thanks to Hoosier Bob and some of his great connections I am now the proud owner of the Mastercraft listed below in the link!!! I just got home about 10 minutes ago and put her to bed with her matching Mastercraft cover.

All said and done I am very pleased with Pinecrest Marine and would recommend them to anyone. As long as I live in the area they have my business. Scot was nothing but wonderful, even when I suprised him today by showing up to get it instead of the original plan of Saturday AM :D

Paid $12k out the door, with 261 hours on the clock. If I were to rate the boat I'd say it's as close to a 10 as they come. No scratches, interior prestine, motor clean enough you could eat of it and she ran like a top!!

Exciting stuff on the MC site tonight!! Easty has a little one and I get me a new G-ride!! :toast:

Nice work, I asked them if they had any like that in stock, Mike told me no, only an old S&S and a newer maristar. Either Mike didn't know or they just took it in. Regardless. I hope everything goes well, and I always good luck so far with Pinecrest up here by Stevo.

Hey Bob I appreciate you being the indian scout on this one! Old Scot was a little suprised by me changing my mind and wanting to save me another trip up on Saturday to get it. He did a great job accomadating my request and even stayed a little past closing so we could do a water test on Geist. Thats a neat lake!

The wife is bummed. I didn't get home till after dark and she hasn't seen it other than the pics you all have seen. She helped me put the cover on her tonight but she seemed pretty happy with the purchase.

BTW, Pinecrest had several new 06's with the new graphics. THEY LOOKED AWESOME!!! :eek3: They also had that new Maristar 200 previously discussed on here. It's a very nice boat, I like the way the interior is laid out.

08-12-2005, 12:18 AM
No problem, SKI MC! I did order a new cover for my spare you know. It is cool as well! No one even wants to see my new cover! Actually I was suprised by the competitive pricing on accessories those guys have. They have recently added inventory (new building) and it is very reasonable. I stop in there very often and browse, dream! Can't wait for the pull! See ya :toast: Hey Bob I appreciate you being the indian scout on this one!

I was wondering about these....
one is Jeff's (190) and one is for sale locally (205)

did they change the dash this much in the same year?
I realize 2 different models, but it seems they would be similar:confused:

That would be a 91-94 model, and yes if that is a 94 they made a ton of changes in the 95'. I could not believe it when I saw the interior. All of what we like about the 91'-94' but better!I was wondering about these....

so, this particular 1995 Prosport is probably something that was made in the middle of the year of 1994?
as opposed to the new 1995 models?

Hoosier Bob
08-12-2005, 01:00 AM
Prosport is something I am unfamiliar with. I thought you said Prostar 205. If it is a Prostar 205 I don't believe it can be anything other than a 91'-94'. :twocents:

You shocked me! Based on your MC expertise I was thinking when you sold your boat that you'd be looking for quite a while (months) for the perfect ship, but you found it soo quickly!

Congrats, I bet it's a relief to be an owner again :)

Jeff - congrats ... do they know you stole that boat! Can't believe the prices you are all able to find those gems at, seriously, when you go to sell take it on a trip to the Pacific Northwest, if that boat was in the paper tomorrow for 20K you would be boatless again by Saturday morning. Congrats!!!

Yeah we wanted open bow but after reasoning with the wife about what I felt comfortable shelling out since we are now a one income family I won. We'll keep this one for 4 years or so and trade up for a 197 or similar but I want to pay cash for whatever we buy then

H20skeefreek
08-12-2005, 08:47 AM
well, when we were shopping, my wife was dead-set on an open bow. We finally settled on a closed bow, and EVERY time we go out she says "i'm so glad we got this boat, with an open bow, where would we put everything?"

Well I think Perfect Pass is going to wait till this winter probably. Still have a little money to dump into the basement completion including a Plasma TV :D Bimini Top I will order right away. If I have time today I'll probably call Johnson Bimini

Yep, I am pretty impressed with the storage space under the bow and I like how the whole seat opens in lieu of how my 86' the seat rest just opened.

Did I mention the heater really blows out some heat?? Hmm......January morning sets anyone?? :purplaugh

But, just so we make Jeff feel bad... :uglyhamme

Barney "tappin it" is too funny.

As far as gas is concerned, you may want to put a can of SeaFoam or other good fuel system cleaner in the tank. It will help clean any gunk that may reside in your fuel system. I think SeaFoam also acts like Stabil, but ICBW.
