A good friend is looking for a nice Mastercraft Closed Bow ski boat for mid to high teens. I have a 99 CB SportStar which he likes. We ski the course on a small lake in Vermont, within our group of friends people ski 15-35 off at 32-36mph. What is the story with the 98-00 Prostar 190, does that hull really have handling and skiing issues? The resale value of them seems to suggest they it does.

Thanks in advance. Jamie

I talked to this guy last week. He's in Auburn AL. Looks like a nice machine indeed.

JamieThat's what I'm talking about with reference to shortline skiing...Just make sure the speeds are up there with the age group bracketing.... It's got to be right....:D :headbang:

If he likes your Sport Star he should really look at the 95-97 Prostars (same hull). Should be able to easily find a really nice boat in that price range.

I've heard rumblings of these years being the "DeathStar" hull...

I would steer clear.

Either a 95-97 ProStar hull, or spend the extra cash and go 2002+ ProStar.

Still a little sensetive to that topic?

I'm still regularly using my walk thru windshield for "dip" and "my exercise machine" hasn't failed yet!

I don't have any handling or performance issues with my 98 Anniversary. It's been a great boat. Now if I could just get my kids to keep the goldfish crackers out of the carpet. :o

Nothing worse than cheese crackers in a boat's carpet.

Yea, orange crackers in royal blue carpet = :mad: But when it is your kids, does it really matter? :o

I gotta go with "yes." :) While I may have to bend on my food rules, we'll have to find something other than cheese crackers to do it with.

I have definitely added Cheetos to the list of items not allowed on the boat!!

Beer has always been allowed on mine. Spilling beer, however, is not allowed.

Spilling beer is ALCOHOL ABUSE, and will not be tolerated!!!!


VTJC, I sent you a PM about a boat for sale....

So I guess Danica 'Minnie' from the Wonder Years thread would be allowed to drink what ever she wanted in your boat. :dance:

Wow, sorry for the thread-jack. Make one comment about goldfish in blue carpet and see what you get. Sorry, my bad. :cry:

My 98 is great, love it.

Midwest Mastercraft in Minneapolis has a black/white 2000 Sportstar Closed Bow with 310 Predator and 143 hours for $19,995. Shipping out East might be spendy-but it looks like a nice boat. My 1995 PS 190 LT-1 with 190 hours is also available for the right price :uglyhamme . I would even deliver it to you if he spent enough :D
