1984 S and S powerslot. Mine does not have a sticker. My understanding the sticker, were it present, would say cap is 6 persons or 1080 (1050?) lbs. My issue is that I've read the law and the law requires the sticker to be present on boats that are 22 feet or less in length. I'm not a big fan of stickers, but neither am I a big fan of having extra things to talk about with the local LEOs on the lake. So if I wanted a sticker correct for my boat, how would I get one? Go direct to Mastercraft or??

That and a daytime distress signal (b/c Lake Mead is USCG controlled) are the only two issues between my boat and compliance right now. I've got all the other bases covered.

Contact MC Customer service..I got a trailer sticker by just asking. I can't remember the contact name but it took about a 1-2 weeks and I had my needed decal. I am sure they could kelp you out.

Mines heavily faded and wouldn't mind replacing it. Let us know where/if you find 'em

Ask for Linda Kiser @ Mastercraft 423 884 2221 - She in Production where the sticker would come out of.

They told me, "Sorry we don't print those anymore".
There are places online where you can have them printed.

more resources

so my prostar (20.5 x 7) / 15 = 9.56 persons- round up it seems... to 10 or 1330 pounds...

(l x w) / 15... so average weight of persons on board if 10 can't exceed 130.3 pounds...doh!

Hey as long as they are all bikini-clad supermodels you should be good to go.

I'd like to get a plate for an X55 and stick it on my S&S. The local water patrol would be baffled by my 18 passengers.
