Um, at that price, I would call the guy and talk him into shipping it! :)

Wow....it's a bit weathered, but that is a fantastic price :firejump:

Even with shipping, it's probably going to be very inexpensive....

tph,
thanks to you I picked this boom up this weekend. $75 and $20 in gas.
:dance: :dance:
The pads are shredded but the cables and metal are in good shape.
My boys are pumped.
:banana: :banana:
The guy selling it had an 83 S&S from Cypress Gardens (sweet). He was selling the boat and getting a v-drive for the kids so the boom wasn't going to fit.
If anybody wants a straight boom (won't work on a tapered boom unless you have the big "L" mounting bracket) you can have my old one if you come to Santa Clara.

Thanks tph

what boom fits best and won't leave marks on the pylon for the '05 ProStar 197???would be nice to be able to mount on the driver or passenger side...

sometimes take scouts and kids on the pond to train them and much easier having them on the driver side to coach them when i'm driving...

would be great to see some pictures...

how do the new ones fit in around the engine box???

That's the one....

To keep all marks off the gunnel, we wrap a chamois around the boom where it lays on the side of the boat.

that's a great idea...do they still have the tough to push in "push pin" to lock them together, or is there an easier method now???

They still use the pin, but I don't find it very hard at all to put the boom on. We usually have 2 people that set it up, and it goes very easily and quickly.

How much should you expect to pay for one? With all of the little kids that we take out, it would probably be the best accessory that we could buy this year.

Great!. I'm glad you got it. I think they usually go for $200.00 or more used. I was going to pick it up, but I already have one. The pads on mine are bad too, but that shouldn't be difficult to remedy. Have fun with it.

Was the '83 a "big block"?

This inspired me. I found one on ebay, brand new, but it went for almost what I just paid for one new.

I called my dealer, and believe it or not they had one in stock, sold it to me for less than advertised on the web, and will deliver it to my boat and give me some "lessons" on how to drive with a boom (and not knock people out).

Have I said lately that the dealer is everything??????
