First boat I have owned. I had the use of 1995 one summer 5 or 6 years ago. I had to take the platform off to get it in my garage.

He probably pulls it off, like I do, to attach transom straps. :)

Thanks Ric.

That original picture was almost as disturbing as milks "40 year old virgin" video.

Pylon has a velcro "wrap" that holds the ski rope and handle. It was on the boat when I picked it up, and it works well in keeping the rope untangled.

The Pic in front on the Nautique Dealer is from the original Boat Trader Ad for the boat. I ended up picking it up off the owner after he took it back from the dealer who was trying to sell it for him. Picked it up for $8k........Powerslot Tranny appears to have some warped clutch plates, which killed the original deal that had the boat sold. Prop still spins in neutral, but there is still lots of "play value" till I get it fixed.

I have 1 quote for a little over a grand to swap with a rebuilt unit, and a new damper plate (price includes tax). I also talked to a guy yesterday who guesstimated $650, but he will have to crack it open to see for sure.

Congrats on the boat. Good luck with the tranny - there are several mechanics on here who have some great advice - you may even want to start a new thread concerning the tranny to get their attention.

try to use the word "transmission" as the use of the word "tranny" leads to numerous threadjacks :cool:

:D Congrats, perfect color. If you have the 351 HO w/4010 and are having problems with it shoot me a line, I bought a 93 PS 205 this spring and did the Holley 4010 dance.

I thought I was going to have to put a trans. in mine before I bought it. The previous owner advised me that he got it to slip one day after loading it with ballast, many people, and running it "hard" all day. Since taking delivery, I have yet to experience this "slip". But, nevertheless, I researched it to no end. The cheapest place I found was in Ft. Lauderdale, Transmission Marine (www.marinegears.com). They advised if it was just clutches, they could rebuild mine and it would run around $450 + shipping (around $80), and they could turn it around in 3 days, and give me a 90 day warranty.

That's a great price! Like you, I bought a fixer-upper 93 PS 190 for my first boat and love it!

Welcome - to the best way to waste part of every day.
