Hi guys! It's been a while since I been here. It's about 4 months to I can pull out my MC BF200 from hibernation, and again my search for spare barts will begin
Do you know of any place/store that might have parts for these boats? I'm looking for dashboard parts. Mine is cracking up :/ plastic-****..
BTW: i tested my topspeed last summer with GPS. I chickened out at 109 km/t (67 mph) that 3.1 L vmax really have some muscle!
EDIT: oh yeah.. and some ideas of where to find good boatcovers for these boats?! I bought one last year at boatcovers.com. I bought the semi costum sunburst model. Not to happy with it. Way to wide for my boat and to light.. It keeps blowing of.. And with all the rain up here, it becomes a problem..
How about a predecessor to your BF 200's joining the group? I purchased my 1988 ProStar 200 around Thanksgiving and love it. It was pampered by the original owner and only needed a little freshening and detailing.
Currently breaking in my "new" newly rebuilt power head on my Yamie200, as of how I have put on 5 hrs.
Many more to go @ 1200 rpm's' will post some interest'n pics tomorrow.
I also used Jim - "Upholstery Guy" for my driver's seat. ...great guy to deal with and nice workmanship.
Clearly a late reply to you. I believe I have a 3 blade SS, 21P prop (no brand name), but I'll need to take it off to get the dia. It has great hole shot and top end is about 55mph. I also have a 3 blade SS, 13 3/4", 17P that I've never used, but I was told the boat will practically jump out of the water with it. I've seen other postings stating 13 3/4 X 19P, 3 blade stainless and 59mph top end and a 19" High five on a 200 merc getting 62 mph. It would be nice to re-sleeve a high five for a yamaha. They're great props with incredible hole shot yet respectable top end (I use to have one on a 150hp merc).
Finally checked my current prop ... It's a 14.5 x 21-M1 stainless 3-blade - Great hole shot and 55 to 58 mph top end
Re your question a while back. My cottage is on Lac Bernard (15 min. N of Wakefield), but I also ski on the Rideau River and Buckham's Bay. There's a group of us who get together weekly. ... a mixture of barefoot and slalom skiing (sometimes it's too windy or too much boat traffic to go foot'n). We've also been trying an air chair. It's a great backup for windy days. Where r U skiing?
It's been a while since I've been to this site. It's nice to see a few more members as well. Also it's great to see some photos. BTW, very nice motor Oneill. I'll try to post some photos in the next while as well. So how's everyone boats running?
What props do you run on your Barefoot200's? I have a BF200 with a ProV200 Yamaha, and looking for a good all-around prop. Maybe a 21P-23P High Five? Suggestions...
I'm looking to buy a BF200 and am trying to find someone who can transport it inside an enclosed trailer to my family in So Cal. My reasons are I don't want it towed across the country, I don't want it shrink wrapped and then in the wind for 2000 miles, and it will likely ship in winter so I want it protected from the elements.
Can anyone tell me the width from outside fender to outside fender on their Mastercraft trailer?
Plus I'm told the highest point in the top of the windshield so how tall is that?
Finally, how long from tongue to propeller?
I'll ship someone a bottle of wine for helping!
