Which Boom for my boat?
 
I have a 1989 Mastercraft Prostar 190 and I'm getting a barefoot Int. Boom but I'm not sure weather or not I need a straight or a contoured boom. I took a board and stuck it from the pylon to the side of the boat and it clears the wind shield by like 2" but it still needs another 2" to be on a flat part of the hull. Does anyone have a boat like mine with a boom or seen one like it? I also think there are two different types of contoured booms. Which one do I need???

I believe you will be able to get away with using a straight boom, if you can get a good deal I'd go with a contour boom as it's easier to step over it.

I've got a 98 and could use a straight boom on mine.

I've got a BI on my 91......I know the deck/windshield is different but I think you'd be happier with the contour model. A straight should work (did in mine) but the contour lets your run the boom out behind the drivers seat. I like that if I'm driving and trying to give instructions at the same time. It is also easier to balance the boat to the person out on the boom by moving people around on the passenger side of the boat. The contour also gives a little more room for the passengers if you run it out that side of the boat. My boom started off straight and I added the contour with a hydraulic bender. I really prefer it with the curves in.

Thanks! I'll call BI today and see what they say. I just don't want to pay that much money for something I can't use.

I am sure you will get alot of use out of it. Also, if you go w/ the contour boom then if you ever change boats it will be more adaptable to a newer design.

The contour boom also makes it more comfortable to use the observer's seat.

just in case you havnt bought yet ive just bought a contoured boom for my 89 190, just asked mc for the boom for my boat and out came the contoured boom fits a treat.
as mentioned in above posts does help with room in the boat.
also if you have a high pole you can mount the boom attachment to the pylon and leave it there let the high pole sit on it,
i must admit i went the whole hog and bought the optional riser piece also so i dont have to alter the clamp for different heights of people

You bought that from a MC dealer?? What brand do they stock?

Oh and are we going to get some shots of your 190 soon?
