After searching high and low on local classifieds, craigslist, boat trader, etc. I decided to post a wanted ad here on TT. Well, it paid off! I was contacted within a day by someone local looking to sell exactly what I wanted - thanks SkySkiGuy! I look forward to caring for it just as he did.

Same color as mine! Awesome boat and it looks to be in excellent shape. Great find!

Go put in Perfect Pass.....one of the great additions for sure! I found a used module 6.5ng and then bought everything else new. It really is one of the best upgrades/additions I did to our boat.

Oh, and maybe a heater (don't see one in pics)!

Great looking boat in what appears to be great shape. Nice backdrop on the first pic. Please provide more details including year, hours, powerslot tranny or not, 240 or 285 HP engine, and prop,. It even still has the foam liner on the engine box, most in this era have deteriorated and fallen off. Was it just hardly used and stored well or has upholstery been replaced?

Yes, 1992. The PO designed and had the tower custom made. I do like that it goes with the windshield lines. Wouldn't mind if it were a little shorter, maybe halfway between this height and a mini tower.

Yeah, the mountains in Utah are beautiful. The boat is a 1992 with 680 hours, 1:1 tranny and 285 HP engine. It has an OJ 13x13 4 blade on it and the original 13x13 3 blade as a spare, not sure what performance difference there is between the two, if anyone has info on this that would be great. The PO bought it in 1996 with 30 hours and used it, but took very good care of it for the last 16 years. The upholstery is all original except the rear seat bottom, it was redone two years ago.

You're welcome! Take good care of it for us! Kind of sad to not see it in the garage last night!!
And, by the way, I found the original navigation light pole in the garage when I got home - didn't realize I had kept it. Let me know if you want to come get it sometime or if I should just get rid of it.

I can make you a motorbox vent/drinkholder that looks MUCH better than the original one, and it will last forever!

SKIDOG... I have a 91 Maristar and I m sure it s the same dimension's. What were you asking for $$ for the vent/cup holders?
