Isn't the flake just in the hull forward area? The entire hull in the flake would be too much IMHO.

Since it's a moot point, I'll show my hand...I'd pay $100k for it.

Agreed, I thought MC bought it back years ago, restored it, and now display it at the factory? I may have my info wrong though.

The one that started it all! So with hull #1 there, I hope it's safe to assume a special edition 50th Prostar will park next to it at the dealer meeting? :)

They're all unit sellers. MC just fills a niche, arguably, better than than the rest. That's how they gain/retain customers. We bought a Prostar this year for its build quality, features and...

2017 projected sales of $380,000?? If units were flat from 2016, that's $152 per boat. I'm either missing something, or the article is written incorrectly? Regardless, wow, what a drop in units...

Plenty of life left in a well maintained, 900 hour engine. You're realistically looking at probably 2,500 hours before it's time for a rebuild. I used to ski regularly behind a '93 S&S with over...

It's interesting the differences in break-in procedure by brand. PCM wants you to go idle to WOT and wind it back down to idle, before varying the RPMs.

I broke mine by the book, but I'm honestly...

The rear deck plates are fabricated separately from the hull/deck, so the different color is normal.

I'd think 5200 would work fine to cover the holes? Were all those holes exposed like that under...

Are you looking for something permanent, or a temporary solution for transit? 3M surface protection film works great for the hull bottom, but you just apply it for the trip.

For that money, '97 or '98 Ski Nautique hands down. Drive and ski one, then compare it to anything else in that era and you'll know what I mean.

If you don't mind telling us, what's your budget? Knowing that would help us help you track down options. My final suggestion is be willing to travel for the right boat.

Indeed the '91-'94 190 was the same, awesome hull. You get an EFI LT1 in a select few 93's, but EFI became standard equipment in '94 (with the LT1 being the premium engine option).
