Not a fun job but not too difficult depending on the individual boat. A ProStar 190 should be fairly simple. It's going to be different than the shift cable because you'll be dealing with the...

It's pretty much a crap shoot when it comes to how many hours are too many but a general rule of thumb as to condition is how the PO maintained the boat and just plain luck. Up here in the north 30 -...

Consumers Reports has been junk and rigged forever. They've been caught and accused of rigging ratings going back 20 years. Just Google Consumers Reports rigged and watch the links appear.
