I think all of the zbox era software has been faster than old PP Pro. But I know a club member who still swears by PP Pro

You know, I avoided this thread for what, a month or two because I had no interest in seeing young Aric'sX15 ruin a good looking S&S.

Glad I finally took a peak. Nice looking boat!

New software settles in really fast from what I'm told. Mine is one generation old and still settles in faster than every other iteration of SG I ever had. And I have had every version of SG and...

I think the best reason to get it is that it is currently the best Perfect Pass system I have used on my boat. My times are similarly great ball-to-ball right out of the box.

Yes. I did it the last time I was out. I don't think you loose the zbox options when you do this if I recall correctly.

As a general rule, you will like the wake of a Pro Star from 1991-1997 or a Sportstar/19 Skier from 1998--2002 or whenever they stopped production. Between the two hull designs that comprise this...

This is an inaccurate assessment.

The fact is that chine lock or chine walk is something that can happen with any boat and is more likely under a particular set of circumstances such as shallow...

I sold my old 93 205 to a forum member several years ago sight-unseen, international (Texas-Canada). Included in the price was delivery (half-way point - St. Louis).

In no way, shape, or form,...

If all else is equal, but one boat has gear reduction and the other does not, get the one with gear reduction. That said, the 1:1 in the 205 does fine, particularly with a CNC finished prop.

96 is the changeover year. In my experience (have owned a 93; father in law owns a 98), the 98 will ski fine at or above 34 mph with no more than 2 people in the boat. The 92--95 will ski well from...

It's common for 93s to be advertised as "anniversary" boats because they all came with stickers on the side windshields like this one. Often, these decals are extremely faded. In my estimation, the...

You can also look at the prop. Power slot will have a larger diameter prop with more pitch. 1:1 transmission will have a 13x13 stock or some variation of a 13" prop with between 11--14" of pitch...

It was an option. To date, I think I have only seen one 205 with a 1.52:1. As mentioned above, LT1 was an option for any boat in 93. You see it most commonly on the 93 S&S and, of course, it was...

93 was the first year of the LT1. So the window is widened, if only very slightly for as few of those may exist.

Compression checks are nice if you know what to look for on them. Otherwise, a...

Get an automotive battery that fits in the battery box with as many CCA as you can afford. I think my current battery has 750 CCA, which is about 100 CCA more than what's recommended for my boat. I...

I realize this may fit a travel need. But in thinking about it, I keep reaching the conclusion that the highways are not for trains. Good luck. I hope you don't crash into anything.

There's one right over there by Conroe. I just can't remember the name of it at the moment.

If the 91 you're looking at is in good shape and runs well, get it. You can bolt on parts over time and improve an already great boat.
