View Full Version : 1999 Prostar 205 needing a little love

Picked up "my" first boat today. Family had one growing up so I am a little familiar with boats. Its a 1999 Prostar 205 dd that was a bank repossession. As soon as the PO stopped paying the bill, they let the boat sit outside :(

Things it needs:
The tach doesn't work
Needs a battery
The hull needs a serious cleaning
Needs some fiberglass repair, some shallow nicks along the right side at the water line.
The interior needs a complete redoing
No cd player
A good look over/service

Things I plan on doing:
Tower complete with board racks and speakers
Built in ballast system and trim tab

When I looked the boat over, we hooked up a battery charger and it fired right up and sounds great (I ran it 30 seconds tops) I will be doing the interior myself (have access to sewing machines at work) What kind of battery does the boat need?

I plan on taking it in for a 100 hour service (change all fluids filters, greese cables, inspect the drive shaft etc) and getting the fiberglass repaired. What kind of cost am I looking at for the service?

What should I be cleaning the hull with, some you tube videos talked about using some muriatic acid.

If there is anything I am missing that should get the fine tooth comb treatment please let me know. This is a learning experience for me.

Here is just 2 pictures for tonight. I will snap more as the project comes along.

OK, it's May. It's boating season.

In my opinion, the boat doesn't NEED:
1. A tach
2. A clean hull
3. Nicks in the fiberglass fixed
4. A CD player
5. A tower and Ballast.

What it does need is:
1. A good look over/service
2. A working battery, blower, bilge pump, engine, transmission.
3. Probably a bimini. Of course, I'm in Phoenix, where that's an absolute requirement and you're in NorCal, where it may not be.
4. A family in it having fun.

Most of the items on your to-do list I'd put on the Wintertime to-do list; if you're not an experienced boater, you may add more nicks to the fiberglass that need fixing next winter, or interior problems that need repair. No sense in delaying the enjoyment of the boat to make sure everything's polished up.

Have a qualified mechanic look it over, and look over the trailer at the same time. Get it lake-worthy, and go have fun. A summer in the boat will help you set priorities on what needs fixing, upgrading, or ignoring. Get a pair of good combo skis, a beginner wakeboard, a tube and perhaps a kneeboard if you have kids, and take the summer learning to use them. Don't be afraid to ask friends/acquaintances who have boats to come out with you and teach. Learn from them. Don't drink on the boat - it's hard enough learning to be a captain without having to deal with the problems that come with impaired judgement. Grab a copy of the USCG regulations for small boats, and make sure you have all the required safety equipment - getting boarded and not having the right equipment puts a crimp in your day.

Learn to back up the trailer. Have someone else teach your wife (if you have one). Learn to back the boat off the trailer (hint: It always turns to starboard going backwards), and put it on the trailer. Learn the checklist for putting the boat in the water (hint: Blower for 5 minutes, and plug).

Then let the MCOCD take over. Plenty of threads on here about cleaning the hull, gelcoat restoration, replacing interior skins, general maintenance (impellers, shaft packing, steering cables, wiping down the boat, greasing, oiling, etc).

But, mostly, go get wet.

Congrats on the boat! Before you ask, go with the New Dimension Tower made for that boat. Have fun!!

Check the year on the tires... if they are original they could ruin a weekend.

Change the impeller, spark plugs, and oil in the motor and tranny. Save your money and do it yourself in the driveway. Just a spark plug wrench, small hand pump, and a couple of other hand tools, so easy even a caveman can do it. Then take the boat to the nearest lake and test it in the water. Let it idle at the ramp while you check for proper running and leaks at the motor and propshaft, bilge pump etc. Idle around in gear and check forward and reverse then if everything checks take it out and check hole shot and high rpm running. Never run the motor on the trailer without water going to the impeller(even for 30 seconds). Once your sea trial is done you may need a few small adjustments that you can do yourself or you may need a shop to dig in deep, you won't know until you actually drive the boat. Get a buddy with a boat to follow you around or just ask someone at the ramp to follow you for 10 minutes while you sea trial. There are some top notch mechanics right here that you can ask any question. Post up some close up pictures of your motor and bilge etc and owners with the same boat/engine combo will help out. If all of that scares you have a mechanic sea trial the boat for you after you change out the simple stuff.

Thanks for the replys guys.

Where to start. Some of the nicks on the fiberglass do expse some of the cloth. I know the can cause serious fiberglass damage if water gets in. They are small enough I feel it will be a cheap fix.

Blackcreek: Is there a maintenance manual PDF I can download for this thing. I would love to do the impellar and plugs, but i def need a manual.

Mikeg: Tires did fine on the 1hr 45 min drive home. They looked good when I picked it up.

Frank: Already have a wakeboard and slalom ski. A tube and life vests will be picked up this week.

I will get better pics of everything today.

http://www.marineengine.com/manuals/clymer/indmar/indmar.html Honestly there are threads here for every repair on a direct drive prostar up to and including complete teardowns of engines and transmissions. Use the advance search function and type in keywords using the search title only to narrow down what you want to look for. Mastercraft also has the owners manual online for download.

So you want to find out how to change an impeller.
1.Click search at the top of the page
2. Click on advanced search in the drop down menu
3. Type in impeller as the key word
4. Click title seach only in the drop down
5. Select the forum you want to seach ie engine drive train
6. Click search and a bunch of threads will pop up.

Using the same search method and typing in owners manual as a key word and search title only in all forums this pops up.http://www.mastercraft.com/knowledge/owners_manuals/

Definitely do the impeller. That boat was probably "dry" started a few times. Also, it had a duct tape gas cap so water in the fuel may be an issue. I was told it was a Clear Lake boat, so I would check for good water flow through the raw water system. That lake has a lot of vegetation. Good Luck.

Clean with iron out. Works well and plenty caustic, but less so than muriatic acid.

Well I gave the boat a good cleaning this morning. The water stains are coming off but takes some work. The boat is going into a shop this week for the 100 hour inspection. Getting the complete lookover and getting the fiberglass repairs. First thing first is getting this thing in the water. I will be doing a test drive around the lake once I get it back from the shop.

TPH- do you happen to know more or could you find out anything more about the boat. I am very familiar with clearlake and know that has a bunch of crap floating at the top.

Are these plastic gas tanks? It will be getting fuel treatment (can of heat or some sort of weater remover, through the first tank or two). Putting a new fuel cap on order.

Some better pictures

One more question for you guys. I have been tower shopping for this thing. The POs removed the tower they had installed on it. I would like to get the same kind of tower to keep the mounting points the same. The only clue to what kind of tower it was are the mounting points.

It used rectangular mounting points that look to be 2"x4". Anybody have any idea of what kind of tower that could be?

I probably don't know much more about the boat than you do. I looked at it an hour or two before you did. My comments were based on observation and the information that Nick gave me. The boat requires more work than I wanted to get into. It sounds like you have better resources and more enthusiasm. I'm glad it went to someone who appreciates it's potential.

I think a few of the manufactures use a rectangular mount. Big Air and Monster come to mind. The best looking tower IMO is the New Dimensions. But, it doesn't use a rectangular mount.

Lol you were the guy that looked at it before I did. I was hesitant at first, but boats these days I feel are way overpriced. Looked at an '89 Supra Sunsport w/tower for 8k than this thing popped up. Appreciate it though, I don't know about better resources but the enthusiasm is definetely there.

If you are going to tackle the upholstery yourself, you definitely have more ability and machinery than I do. Have you had any luck with a tower?

I will be doing the upholestry myself, just will take a while to do so. I did order a tower for it, I went with the Monster Mk2 and 2 board racks.

Looks like my MDC box is bad also. From threads here in 2007 they were going for $250, but now they want $550 for them. Are there any places I can find one cheaper?

So I havent updated this thread in a while. Last summer I really didnt get around doing anything to the boat but use it. I was out on the water every weekend last summer just enjoying the crap out of it. I had it serviced at the mastercraft dealer by sacramento and those guys did a fantastic job and the boat ran like a champ all summer. I didn't get much done over the winter because of my previous living conditions, and i was preparing to seperate from the military. Now I moved to colorado and brought the boat with me and have been working on it.

To start, I cleaned the hull using On Off hull cleaner. What an amazing job that stuff does.

Next I picked up a harbor freight variable speed buffer, and the 3M compounding and polishing stuff. I went to work cutting and polishing the boat. I didn't wet sand, just used the 3M products.

As you can see in one of the earlier pictures the swim deck looked just terrible. I tried using the star bright kit on it, and it really didnt do to much. So I sanded it down to fresh wood and put alot of coats of oil on it to get it looking better. Its not where I would like it to be but its a huge improvement.

As you can maybe catch from the pictures I have done some other small things. I rewired the entire trailer and replaced the surge break actuator and break lines. I gave it a quick shot of black spray paint becasue the white was looking terrible. I replaced all for tires and added a spare tire to it.

I bought a monster tower because I picked it up from them on sale for 1,000 bucks with two sets of wakeboard racks. I love the tower.

And i started painting the window trim black. I think it adds the perfect touch with the black stripe.

I lost my trunk lid one day on the road, so now I am building a new one. Instead of having it open up from the back, I am building it to open up in the middle to be easier accesible. I will make sure to post pictures of the proccess and finished product.

I still need to redo the interior. I was calling around and getting quotes. Are these people high?!? One quoted me $2,000 just to do the bow portion of the boat. Yeah...no, So i have a bunch or vinyl on order and will be doing this myself soon.

Alright guys I have a few questions regarding some boat maintenance. I just took my boat to the local dealer in Colorado to get serviced and summarized. When I got the boat back they told me the strut bushings need to be replaced. I looked at the prop shaft and it does have a pretty good amount of movement in the strut it self. So I decided to purchase the bushings from the dealership and do it myself.

Now I have a few concerns. I just had the prop shaft packing replaced last season. Once I pull the prop shaft out will I have to replace the packing again? And are there any good how too's on how to get this all accomplished. I have already found mastercraft directions for engine realignment but I haven't found anything else on replacing the shaft bushings other than take it to the dealer and have them do it.

Taking the bushings out is using a saw and then peel them out.. here's the video.

Changing the cutlass bearing.

Packing should be ok - Did you get the graphite packing?

FrankSchwab
05-11-2014, 03:16 AM
MikeG's got the right answer for the cutlass bearings.

When you pull the shaft you should replace the packing. It's cheap, and should be easy to do on your boat. Use the GoreTex packing, adjust for a drop every 10 seconds or so, then readjust after a few months.

don't forget to align it after you are done putting in new bearings, check them for uneven wear when taking out. I spent 10 hours learning how to get that stupid thing aligned, now I could do it in 2 hours tops... damn MCOCD:cool:

I check alignment every winter.. gives me a good reason to go into garage and spend some time in the boat... first time many hours - now under an hour - easy when its very close... found an extra .002 on one side.. ;) - all within .003 now :D - yup big time MCOCD -

Well I decided to go the route of pulling the strut off the boat instead of trying to pull the prop shaft out. After removing the back seat structure i found it extremely easy to remove the strut with the floor panel removed. After spending some energy removing the old bushings I found out my dealership sold me the wrong size.

Mods if this is inappropriate feel free to delete my post, but I need to vent about my experience with the only dealership in Colorado. I took my boat in a couple weeks ago to get the 100 hour service done. I have an aftermarket tower on the boat with a non MC cover that needs the tower folded back to get it to fit on the boat. When I take the boat in I left the cover with them and let them know about the fitment because it was supposed to rain that evening. While working on the boat I get a call about my strut bushings being worn out and needing to be replaced. I was hesitant about that, every time I have had a vehicle in for service someone always try's to up sell me service not needed. I asked them to set aside the parts and I'll look at the boat when i pick it up.

Fast forward to the next day and I head up the over hour drive to pick up my boat from them. I pull into the parking lot to see my boat sitting in the back with the cover laid on top of the boat incorrectly. It looked like they they took a fitted bed sheet and just laid it on top of the bed instead of putting it on the bed. It did rain and I had water on the inside of my hull.

Fast forward again to me checking out, I decline to purchase the part because I wanted to find see if I could find it online cheaper instead of paying the $96 dollar price tag they had. Thats when the owner or manager decides to be extremely rude and tell me everybody today is expecting handouts. He was mad I wasn't wanting to pay his price for a hallow piece of brass with a rubber coating inside. Well after some talking he apologized and I decided to buy the part to keep better relations with the dealership.

A week later or so I realize its the wrong part. I call them up and they say ohh sorry honest mistake, just drive up and swap it out. I ask them to check their stock because it is such a far drive from me to find out they don't have it. He told me since I have the strut off I could just by a new one to which I responded, are you going to give me that part for the price I paid for the bushings. All I got from him was, "not going to happen." So know I am out multiple hours of my time for their mistake, a lot of money in fuel alone, and a torn apart boat I cannot use. The best they can do for me is say it will be a week before they can get the correct part. I said no thank you, and look for another avenue.

I call back asking to speak to a manager because they need to make this right, that is when a store employee wants to argue with me over the phone and not turn it over to a manager. I got the response that since I bought the part from them with the intentions of installing the part they can't do anything for me. I mean not even over night the part from mastercraft for my inconvenience. So now I'm sitting with parts that do not fit and a dealership that I will essentially spend the amount of money in fuel as the parts just to buy them and return them.

Wall of text, I know. I'm just venting. I'm infuriated that a dealership can act this way with out any care about the customer.

Tweeder- Some unsolicited advice from afar after doing a complete resto on a 1998 205 (1998 205 redo by Wingnut) Your boat is in a lot better shape than mine was and I would suggest always starting with SKIDIM for parts and technical assistance, They are fair, knowledgable and customer service beyond reproach. Additionally, there are some 205 dudes and dudettes on this site who are absolutely invaluable- Mikeg205, Blackcreek, DoubleD and JimN (others too) . Seek their advice and you wont be disappointed. I am always watching any 205 posts and can provide my experience but as you see everyone has an opinion so I watch more than post. Good luck - should be about Spring time in your neck of the woods. If I can help, yell. Wingnut - Dave

Wingnut- thanks for the advice. I always try to find the information I'm looking for on the forum before posting. Skidim is fantastic, I ordered the bushings from them and got them in and already installed into the strut.

Instead of pulling the prop shaft appart and have to deal with the repacking procedures, I pulled the strut off the boat then pulled the bushings. It was actually really easy that way. I picked up some 3M sealant for the strut and the bolts when I mount it back up. I actually contacted Norcal Mastercraft about the stuff they use when they pull the sturt off and purchased what they told me.

I've been working pretty dilegently on the boat the past couple weeks completing projects I had started. I built a new trunk lid, carpetted and put new foam on it. Now I need to have some one recover for me. The small sewing machine I have access too just can't do the job.

I replaced the white vinyl on one of the side trim pieces and mounted it back up.

I actually pulled off all the material from the engine compartment and actually don't mind it with out the vinyl. It is just white fiber glass. So i recarpted the bottom partion of it and then painted the white rubber trim a light blue to match the blue in the trim pieces. I think it turned out great.

And finally I recarpted the main part of the boat. I still need to do the trunk area, the bow under the seats and one of the gulleys. I already did the other side.

So far it is looking good. And now for the pictures.
