I am looking at a 30th anniversary prostar 190. LT-1 engine, 200 hrs. One family has owned since new. Stored in garage. Looks good except for a broken drivers half of the windshield (rock while trailering). They are asking $14900, but would work with me on cost of windshield repair. Thoughts? Boat is listed on Boat Trader. Sorry I can't get the photos from there to here.

Here is another thread about the same boat.

Any idea what the cost and availability on a window? Could be very expensive.

Also, send a PM to Captain Planet since he owns one of these and can fill you in.

I was thinking of offering $12,500. It is the end of the boating season, and I will be unlikely to sell my BF 200 until spring next year.

That was some good detective work in the other thread. Easy to see once you're looking for it. Why don't people just disclose stuff like that on the original post? It's not like they can hide it forever.

Get a firm price on the window (plus shipping and install) before you decide.

Boat is also missing the chine inserts that help with the wake and handling. I have no idea how much difference they make, but I know it was an upgrade for the boat. Don't know where to get them either. Mine has them.

$12.5K would be a good offer. It will cost major ching to have the windshield fixed.

It's too late now, but wouldn't rock chips be covered by boat insurance? Or do you have to have a special trailering rider for it? Anyone know?

I wish the PO of my boat would have had trailer insurance, instead I have a screwed up fender from a blowout..

He says he has been using it without a windshield for 3 years! He declined my offer... Says he will repair and re-list it in the spring. Makes me wonder if he can live with a broken windshield, what other maintenance has been deferred?

That's because they claim they are custom ....they claim they thru out the molds or whatever they use to shape the glass... from what i have read here in this forum..

If you don't mind the drive, this one is available in California. Boat is good to go, turn key and clean. I've skied it and its as good as these get. Has all the fixes including hydro rails.

Not bad, pretty sweet in fact, but not 30th anniversary.
If OP wanted a rare boat, these are far different.

I'm a 93 mike, and the price to buy mine would be astronomical. I love it. I actually have found myself day dreaming about a v drive lately tho...

Looked at the same boat. Cant find a window on here or any where else. My local dealer says
special order from taylor has to be complete windshield (both sides)$3300. I think he has not fixed it because
of the cost.

They softened the wake for slalom skiing. They have nothing to do with the handling.

Hahaha, what has he been doing, wearing aviator glasses for three years? Those would leave terrible tan lines! :D

LMBO. I'd feel like a tool rolling in a boat sans windshield.
