1989 Tristar 190
I am new to the forum. I just bought my first mastercraft boat. I am upgrading from my 1983 ski nautique. My wife really wanted an open bow boat. I found a deal on a 1989 Tristar 190 with 620 hours on it.
It needs some buffing, cleaning, trailer painted, and I am considering replacing the carpet.
There is one soft spot in the walkway between the cockpit and bow.
The motor purrs. It has a new battery, carb rebuild, and impeller.
My question: Is there anything special I need to know about this boat? Is there anything special I need to do?
How would I go about repairing the soft spot in the floor. Any recommendations for carpet?
Recommendations for gel coat cleaning and polishing would be helpful.
Also trailer painting recommendations.
Thanks so much. I am proud to be an owner of a Mastercraft boat!
