Not to brag, but I may be the best 15 off 30 mph skier around! HaHa! It all goes south at 32, but if I have a good gate and 1 -2 ball, look out. And much easier on my boat than a newer one. I think...

A lot of work and risk here. I would not expect a lot at resale unless you can make it look brand new, and document the entire process. Boat needs a professional survey before you buy it. I doubt...

It should drip 10-15 drips per minute at cruising speed. No drips static. If you are confident the glands have been installed properly, just loosen the locking nut and adjust until you get the...

At least it's a solid color, easy to match. Is this boat being docked without bumpers, or had a few dock collisions? The rub rail only buffers so much impact. Pull the rub rail and it's a pretty easy...

If it's the original tube style trailer, good luck. Take a hammer to the hollow areas and listen for dead spots. If its been in salt water, get rid of it. Pics would help.

I would not run it. Put it on the trailer and inspect the prop and rudder. Put a wrench on the prop nut, it may be loose. You may just have some debris wrapped around the shaft. Vibration is not good...

I had this happen on a 91 with a slot. Trailer was not in deep enough. And clearance was reduced by the bunks settling. How flat are your bunks?

75 foot rope? On a Senate? You are in uncharted water there. When I was free skiing the best tip I ever had was to shorten the rope to 15 off. Slalom Junkie has some really good advice. But it will...

Hours would be a factor. 10k max, only after a marine survey. For a couple of thousand more you could get a 205 with half the hours. Unless you are running a course, the 205 sounds like a better fit....

x2 on the 2" rise for the seat. The way waterlogged882 did the floor is spot on. Easy to do now, and will pay off as long as you own the boat.
