1996 Pro Star Restoroation - Another winter project

Another winter project ,

Nearly there with buying this boat ,
Been stood in the corner of a field for 6 years not covered and the worst bit with the hull drain bug still installed, the first thing I did when I saw it was to remove the bug .
I have been told that the boat was at one time was nearly full up with water inside , hence loads of internal water damage .
Keen price , will post as this one moves on .

Holy ****! Whoever did that to a boat needs a thumpin. Electrics will be a nightmare with the Motor let alone guages. Hull and tower look good. Gooood luck. Have fun

95 or is that a 96..... a little wd40 on that alternator should take care of it...

Good luck...can't wait to see the on going pics...the ski pylon show the waterline....

Can't imagine someone having something that cost that much and not give a flyin'....you know what.

ooo...just realized - waterline over tranny... that could be a real problem too.... dang... did you get from original owner?

I think I'd throw a new belt on it while I was in there!

I'd like to walk up to the person who let that boat go to waste and slap them on the forehead and say "No....No.....No!"

Right ah.... some of us work way to hard to get a great piece of equipment like this...it's sooo hard seeing someone let one go to waste...at least sell the the boat to someone who cares before it rots.

Was the predator motor around in 95-96? I was thinking it was a sportstar or skier (I have the predator in my '01 skier).

Either way, good luck with the rebuild!
