Beginning my search for a Prostar 205 DD, I would prefer one with relatively low hours. I have searched my local CL, ebay, boattrader, onlyinboards and skiitagain and haven't found much that catches my eye. I'm hoping to find one within a reasonable driving distance (up to 400 miles or so from Pittsburgh) so I can check it out in person.

Any other sites I'm missing or boats I haven't come across?

Thanks in advance!

You might want to pm a guy on here by the name of "Footn". Not sure if he still has his for sale or not but if he does it is one nice boat and it would be located in the Columbus, OH area.

Sorry I can't help you with the 205 but I notice your located out East of Pittsburgh. If you don't mind sharing where do you put in? I live in the South Hills.

I talked with Mike in December and he wasn't quite ready to sell yet. I haven't seen it posted here but I may make the trip to check it out if and when it's ready to go. I'm looking for something with similar hours and in that good of shape.

We have a place at Deep Creek, my family's Malibu is docked there all summer and we trailer our MC there most weekends. This summer we put in at the South Side launch a lot. The water is surprisingly nice most days and you can't beat hanging outside PNC Park in the afternoon.

He bought a new Ski Nautique or something another....

No thread started, but I am ready to sell it. It is in Kentucky right now, I will go pick it up if there is serious interest.

Was every 90s 205 made pink and teal? Can't seem to find many that are black, red, white....

This is the best color combination for the late 90s 205...unbiased opinion of course.

No, here is a picture of Footin's 1994 205 that he will be selling, right next to my Blue, White and RASPBERRY!!! From Buckeye Bash II in 2011.

I'm digging your interior with the pink accent! The stock interior not so much...

For what it is worth, I don't think you will find a nicer 205 than Mike's as he really takes care of it. Plus you won't find a nicer guy to deal with.
Good luck.

Alot of us could argue on that point! :)

I agree. The lady that redid my interior hit a home run. I still get in my boat and wonder if it's really mine. LOL

I agree Footin's is definitely worth taking a look at it, and he is in within reasonable distance. I don't want him to drag the boat back to Ohio if I'm not serious about it so I would like to see what else is out the to compare it to.

Am I missing any popular classified sites besides CL, ebay, onlyinboards, boattrader, and skiitagain?

Mine will be coming back to Ohio in March sometime. I am going to detail it, then it will then go to Boat House Marine for them to sell on consignment. They have told me it should sell very quickly.

Yep that is even more funny when it is not what the title says... Because if it is, it is an extremely rare open bow 190!

Silly me, I can't believe I forgot to check Charlotte's CL!!!! I appreciate you pointing the ad out for me, it's one of the many reasons this site is so valuable. I have an email out to the seller, I'll post the details here when I get them.

So there are 700 separate CL cities/sites. Years ago I used a search engine called "craigslook" that would search all CL sites within a radius of your choice. It's no longer out there, but is there a replacement or a similar site out there?

Use Search Tempest to browse CL. Cover the entire US or whatever you choose.
