Steep, restoed a hammered 98 205 salt water baby and I actually was stationed in Hawaii for 5 years and left in 05. I have skiied out of Kanehoe many times- (sandbar rocks too). Used to have a ski club at the Marina. I saw this boat sitting there years ago. couldn't ever find the owner. Anyway, I learned a lot on my resto so check out the link 1998 205 redo by wingnut. This forum rocks and there are some great folks- Many really popoo saltwater but you go with what you got. Ill watch your redo. I operate and live on salt. All the best. One of your big expenses will be the interior so start shopping now. Later Dave

Dave thanks man, yeah not much we can do about the salt, I miss riding so itll have to do for now. I think was a little unclear about my last post. I am thinking of buying the tantrum and pulling the engine/trans out of it and using it in the prostar that Ive been restoring. Just wondering if its doable and would be worth the effort for the price. Also it comes with the tower and other goodies Thanks again, cant wait to check out your thread, this site is full of inspiration!

Cant access the C list link- Ref Motor switch You will have to check the mounts and dimensions. I learned that that the mounts are tapped into the stringer so if your thinking start throwing a mixture of AT fluid and Brake fluid on the threads now. I have both front and rear INDMAR mounts for the engine- Fronts are new Tranny is used- think the original set up might have been ford carb Indmar 351 (240hp)with Borg Warner Drive. New gonna run you 7-8K stateside with everything for a mark on the wall. Good Luck- keep it going. Dave

Hey guys, finally scrounged up enough coin for a repower. Im hesitant to buy used but seems to be an affordable option. Does anyone have any resources they could recommend? It will have a closed cooling system that I saved from the scrapped engine. Any help would be great! Thank you

I sandblasted and painted the exhaust elbows on my '82 last year. They still look great.

Nice! Mine are really rusty on the inside, was wondering if it would be okay to sandblast it out. Would save some coin if these are salvageable...
