Novato resident here. Black and white 1992 PS 205 with black tower.
Lakes for us are Bullards Bar and Shasta. Sometimes Mendocino or Sonoma for a quick trip.

I understand your concern but I've also never had anything fly out of my 205 in the 5 years I've been trailering it. I usually tow between 65-70 with short stretches above that.
I do have a bow cover...

Not offhand but I can take a measurement for you. I have the tower folded down in order to fit into its home. It is tall though, at least 11-12 feet from ground level. Folding it down requires...

We bought the 3-seater hot dog tube a few years ago. We own about 3-4 tubes (big sofa type, large round, small round single, etc..). Since the hot dog, none of the others ever get used anymore. Tips...

I recently installed a Big Air Vapor tower on my 1992 PS 205. I do believe the mounting position will differ from a '92 to a '96 since the vents are not the same. I mounted the front just ahead of...

I went from a '85 S&S to a '92 PS205. So much more room in the boat, more plush, more versatile and a better ski wake to boot.
As mentioned above, find another 205 if no trailer is a problem....

I regularly ski behind a 1994 Malibu Eschelon open bow. That ski wake is every bit as good as my 1992 PS205. If we both run full gas tanks, the Malibu is slightly better. With 1/2 or 1/4 tanks, my PS...

As someone who primarily uses their boat in salt water, I can provide additional insight.
As far as the trailer goes, it is a losing battle once that thing hits the salt. Preventive care can slow...

Sounds like your actuator is engaging, maybe not fully, but enough to drag the brakes. You will want to correct this. If the wheel was too hot to touch you are heating that grease up and towing long...

Upgrade. Been there, done that. Rebuilt my 4010 and still ran poorly. Put on a nicely rebuilt 4160, a little tuning, and have never looked back.

You should be able to find a decent 92-95 PS 205 around $10K, especially if you wait until seasons end.
