Does anyone have a tower on one of these models? You would like to see some pics if possible. Brandy and I are thinking about upgrading after the summer, we still have the 87' sold and don't like the looks of a tower on that model. We need to get the skis in the air for the room and don't want a open bow boat. Thanks for any advise or pics. We do have time, the boat is yours until the end of summer, if we sell then.

This looks better than some of the towers out there, but something just doesn't look right on this style...

Nah, too far away. S&S was still an option in 93 (available through 07/93 I believe). Not one of only 25 made or something. Beautiful, but not so rare that I can rationalize a cross country trek. Another will turn up if it's meant to be. I've been watching them pop up here and there as long as I've been paying attention. I've got a boat that's perfect for me until the next perfect boat falls into my lap. My boat's paid for and running like a top.

I only think about other boats when I'm not skiing. For me to move on something, it'll have to be close, red, likely fuel injected (or be a red S&S), have perfect pass, a bimini, be in too good of condition to pass up or even hesitate about, and be a really good deal. Otherwise, it's too much trouble to mess with.

If it's just for storage, just shove it under the bow and leave the back seat out.

We do both, the back seat out and use the bow storage. But Kaylee has friends that will start wanting to come, so the back seat we will need. If all the kids did the same thing, it would not be a problem, but that never happens.

You'll be hard pressed to find Ford power in 94, as it was $$ option. 91-93, pretty easy to find Ford Power. The intake on the above boat was done at Keith Blacks shop, then Jet Hot 1200 coated, then the computer was dailed in by Alan Tehan, the guy who actually designs the engines. The hole shot, skier up, and midrange is beautiful and very smooth and has hurt many feelings of Malibu and Ski Nautique owners, even with newer boats, up to 36-38 mph. I love my wifes Mustang, I loved all my Broncos, but my .02, hard to get the 285 fords as smooth as the 350's; no offense to anything, as I had a 91 and a 93.

The back seat is in the garage, covered, where it's been since 94, cleaned twice a year and recovered - as new.

I am having a hard time understanding why you "want" the 351 over the 350?? Is it just a Ford/Chevy thing??

Considering the advantages of EFI over carb I think you really should drive/research the issue a little further. While I am a die hard GM guy I am also a huge technology junkie and will take the most advanced/reliable option regardless of make. I almost did not buy a MC last year because of their "lack" of affordable technology in the power department compared to the competition.

If you do find an LT1 for a good price you had better snatch it up. One of the best GM engines ever built and if maintained properly will run forever.

Good luck :)

Bret's boat is a seriously fine looking boat. If you are looking for that vintage and he is selling that would definitely be on the top of the list. He has the best looking gel coat of any boat I have seen including brand new on the showroom floor boats.

That Sammy looks like a nice boat as well. LT1 (with fuel injection) and a Slot. Ford man or GM man I think you would be silly to choose a 351 carb over a 350 with fuel injection. So much better drivability. Looks like a nice price too. Winter Haven is only about a 15 hour ride for you. On the way back you can stop buy and we'll give it a test ride in our lake. It is right on the interstate on your way back.

Have to agree w/ Brian here. After owning a carb'd boat and now TBI I won't go back. Runs so much smoother, less hassle, and alot better on gas than a carb'd boat. I love flickin the key and having it fire right up and driving away without piddling with a carburetor that needs some warmup.

You don't let your tbi warm up? I let all of our boats warm up to operating temp before I put the throttle down, fuel injected or not.

Now Brett says he's made some modifications so I'm wondering what his hp is, but after feeling what 10--15 horsepower (and some torque) did to the overall feel of my boat that started off at 285 hp, I often wonder whether I'd want to drop back down. I realize it doesn't sound like a lot.

As for fuel injection versus carb, all else being equal, I agree it's a no brainer. But since I got my 4160 on there two years ago, it's been a non-issue. I do spend a few bucks extra keeping my fuel stabilized. But it starts quickly and I can wear myself out on the course with a can or so of gas.

All that said, were I to buy another boat, it'd be newer than the one I own. So that pretty much means fuel injected is a given in my case.

BrianM

.

I think what Jeff was saying is that you don't have to let the thing warm up before you stick it in gear. My '88 ran like a top and started as good as any carbed boat but when you started it up it had to warm up a bit before I could stick it in gear to manuver around the dock etc. With the TBI I turn the key to on for a few seconds to prime the injectors then turn it to start and it fires immediately. No pumping the throttle or anything else. I let the rpms come down of of high idle (about 10-15 sec) and I am able to manuver around the dock, idle around whatever with no worries of a finicky carb cutting out or surging or some other non smooth operation for the first couple of minutes when it is cold.

One of the main reasons I wanted a newer boat was EFI and I couldn't be happier and wouldn't go back to a carb. The EFI is just so silky smooth at idle, speed, starts whatever.

I gotcha. It's a nice luxury to have, no doubt. And if I buy another boat, I'll have it. But it's like the conversation of "Should I pay to convert my carb'd boat to FI." The answer I've heard 9 times out of 10 is to leave it alone, and if you want fuel injection, buy a fuel injected boat. So far, a few throttle pumps and some added moments before I put her in gear hasn't proven inconvenient to me though, at least not enough to want a new boat for that reason alone.

Like I'm fond of saying, I only think about other boats when I'm not on the lake in mine.

Slight threadjack. Took it to a brake place near my office (needs a new master cylinder). One of the guys who works there asked if I was interested in selling it. I asked him if he was making an offer and he looked at it and said he couldn't afford what I'd probably want for it. Made my day.

Definitely would not convert a carbed boat to EFI. The cost is huge and you can buy a newer boat with fuel injection with less hassle and dollars than converting.

Not something I'm considering, but it gets asked about on here from time to time. But back to the topic at hand, carb or not, I like the Ford in my boat. Nice low end, and I like the GT40 whine. Of course, the 350 Vortec TBI in my Father-in-law's 98 205 is great! Also very nice low end.

BrianM
04-27-2006, 02:05 PM
I love my TBI. Plenty of grunt even with the 1:1. Would have loved to have had the Slot but this boat was to nice to pass up. I personally prefer the TBI over the LT1 but I know that many love the LT1 as well. Just didn't want to have to deal with a few of the LT1 quirks that seem to come up. From all my researching the iron block and head TBI is a reliable, silky smooth running, workhorse. So far I am a believer.

east tx skier
04-27-2006, 02:35 PM
The one in my father-in-law's boat is the 308 hp tbi and will rip arms out of the sockets if someone gives you too much throttle on the get up. And it has been bullet proof maintenancewise.

6ballsisall
04-27-2006, 03:12 PM
As Brian said East, that is what I meant. Seems like all the carb'd boats I have been in were just a little cold blooded in the morning even in the best of conditions and tuning. I have no qualms with firing mine up, backing off the trailer immediately and idling out to the ski zone. Friends that have carb'd boats have to let it run on the trailer for a little while before dropping it in gear and moving on their way.

Agreed, the TBI is a silk smooth engine (mine is now that I changed the distributor cap!! :eek: ) I've never been in or driven a LT1 motor but I have to say my little 275hp w/ 1:1 has more than enough giddy-up

east tx skier
04-27-2006, 03:35 PM
I think the colder the climate, the longer the trailer time is. Around here, it's probably less of an issue. I think 275 with the right prop would no doubt be more than enough. That said, even after the CNC'd prop, that new intake did wonders for the hole shot. Felt like a whole new boat.

It's out there, just be patient. It may not have a tower when you buy it but that's an easy fix...

I'll get your a$$ on a road trip!!!

ok excuse the ignorance and the threadjack, but what is a powerslot?

88 PS190

powerslot is a transmission that changes the gear ratio to allow lower rpm but more prop surface = more rpm at slalom speed but more ability to hold speed, or lower speed w/ same ability

I know you are kidding but it made me think.... uh oh!!!

isn't the lightning motor and OHC motor? If so, I read somewhere on here that's why pcm switched back to GM too?

That's why I said I could not recommend it. :) The way I understand it, the last Ford in a MC was 93. The only fuel injected option that year was the LT1. After that, it was all fuel injection and no Ford. PCM continued to use the marinized Ford until about 2002 when Ford got out of the marine business.

B-Rad you have the dollars so the boat will come. If the 93 Anni, LT1 S&S is your dream why go tower? Save your dough, get the boat you want and keep it real. So how long have you been B-Rad? :confused:

With a 20K cap you can get ton of nice rides. The tower can come later.I looked at an X-Star when I bought my 93. It was around 20k three years ago. I think it was a 98 or 99. It looked alot dif from what you see now. It was cool though. A 190 and a Tower to me is like Amonia and Bleach. Go 205 or something so you can get the most out of the wakeboard and still have a decent slalom wake. IMO! :D Awhile with the younger crowd!!!!

Well, let's see if he decides to sell his for the right price. Technically, I'm supposed to let BriEOD know if I ever decide to sell mine. Sort of like Brett's boat, mine isn't really for sale at the moment. But that said, I showed his to my wife and she said we should look at it if he decides to sell. :) It'd be hard to let mine go though.

HOld up, I thought the budget was 15.....20 and a 95/96 opens up a whole new market.

you should see the sorry shape this boat is it.

if they got 29 for this boat, they should be able to get me 40 for mine...

the swim platform was hard mounted to the boat, but it isn't on straight it angles down about 20 degrees

it's had two towers mounted on it. the first one mounted to the top of the deck so the just threw some tape over the holes and painted them white

the tower that's on it now is mounted to the side of the deck and from the looks of the cracks coming from the mount brackets it looks as though back up plates were not used

they put speakers on the tower and just drilled a 3/4" hole through the lid to get the wires out (it's cracking too)

I guess since they put a tower on they didn't feel a need for the sky pylon so it's been removed (but the hole is still there)

If anything, it'll be a long drawn out process. So far, the only one that has peaked my interest has been Bret's. But with that, it'd have to be (1) the right deal, and (2) actually for sale. Otherwise, I'm sticking with what I got.

Ric, whattayaknow, they called me about 15 minutes ago. 800+ hours. No rip in the o-seat (shadow in the pic). The guy was a new salesperson and told me that older MCs have stopped depreciating and are, in some instances, appreciating.

I was so close to saying,

"So I guess I should just keep mine if that's the case."

Maybe I'll swing by to check it out next time I'm in Houston. The list price isn't really coaxing me to do it though.

Well, I guess that means I'm keeping my boat, too. Bret, my wife thinks you have a great looking boat. We looked at the pictures over and over and decided that if it went up for sale, we'd want to have a look. But short of your boat becoming available, we were keeping ours.

All for the best. Good luck on your boat search Brad. :)

Why the long face? Save the money for gas. You have a 100% new interior as it stands right now and a great boat to go with it. Throw a tower and maybe some GT40 heads on that boat (C'mon, ya know you want to. :)) and hit the water.

/edit. What about that boat in Houston? I talked to the dealer that's got it up for sale. He said he'd make me a good deal on it. I'm passing on it for reasons not having anything to do with its overall apparent quality, but it might be worth a phone call.

We went out yesterday. Boat is getting plenty of use. I still haven't made my mind up about the tower. I would be better off using that cash for some laser eye surgery for Brandy.
