I have a set of OJ folding brackets that I purchased unused from another TT member. I could not get them to fit to my satisfaction on my 89 Prostar. Here is a link (http://mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showpost.php?p=820124&postcount=10) to a couple of pictures. Basically, the brackets that attach to the transom are not the correct angle for my boat. They appear to measure 11 degrees, which according to some information I could find here on TT should be correct - but for whatever reason, that was not correct for my boat. I considered having them machined to the correct angle locally but, as you will see in the picture, when installed they hit the lifting rings.
I'm sure there is a MasterCraft that could use these:)
$200/make an offer and I will pay shipping to continental US.

Email, or PM any questions - or if you'd rather talk leave your number and I will give you a call. Thanks!

If I understand correctly, they only make one model, not a specific model for each series of boats. I ordered a set for my 197TT, I am not sure they even asked what model they were for. When I went to install them, it was going to require too much new hole drilling and old hole filling for my tastes.

I ordered and installed a set 2 seasons ago on my 197tt, (it was pretty easy) and mine don't look like those. I'd guess that there is at least 2 different kinds out there.

Sorry for the delay, lots of work lately. I was told these would fit my 89 Prostar. There are some threads on here from a few years ago when these were under development..Harold maybe?...however most of the pictures have been removed for some reason. Anyway, before I bought them, I called OJ to ask about folding brackets for the older boats. Eric told me they were not in production. I purchased them based upon the previous owner telling me that he bought them for his boat back then. Due to the angle of my transom, and the height of the platform (it hit the lifting rings). These will not fit on my 89 as a folding brackets. I would have used them as 'take off' brackets, as they are very easy to remove and extremely sturdy, but due to the platform hitting the lift rings - I decided not to use them. I could have had the transom brackets machined locally, and made a couple of other modifications to use them. However, since I seem to work 24/7 - I went with a different bracket (Alloy Marine).
I have more pictures available, and would be happy to answer questions via direct email (check my profile).
Thanks,
Jack

Do you think these brackets would fit a 2005 x10?
