OUCH!
I did my own. There are pics on this site somewhere, search for pilot02 (my username) and Tristar 190 Restoration.
I haven't been on here since Sept and the site has totally changed so I'm searching for stuff myself.

Floors

I have a 1988 22footer I need to recarpet as well. My interior looks similiar. There seem to be some soft spots by the back bench, and the by the hole by the ski pole and also in the walkway to the front. I had to get to the gas tank once and thought these floors were wood correct? It looks like those are fiberglass? How long did this take you to do and cost estimate?

Unhappy

Looks good so far!

I'm planning to replace the carpet on my 91 TriStar. I'm curious how you got the very front floor panel out -- the one in the walkthrough. I can't slide mine back because the filler and vent necks in the fuel tank protrude above floor level. I would slide the tank back but the two front hold-down brackets are under this front floor section. Catch 22!

I've always had a soft spot for the Tristar. I just about bought one instead of the PS205. I'm glad to see you're giving her a second life.

I can't help you with the skins. I did the upholstery from scratch in my last boat and it wasn't bad (took a class and learned to use a sewing machine) but I think the Tristar would be pretty complicated.

Hey TRISTARX

My floor is all fiberglass. I imagine yours is also. As far as I know, no wood was used in the floors (specifically the stringers) since the mid 80s. If you have some flex in your floor one of the removable centre panels may have a crack and may just need some reglassing underneath.

You were asking about carpet cost....
I've just ordered 18 feet of the 8.5 foot wide Daystar Lancer 20 oz. carpet from Overtons. They sent me a sample card with all the colors on it and the Light Grey was an exact match to my current carpet. I sketched out all my pieces to scale on graph paper to make sure I ordered the correct amount.

Is your boat an open bow? If so, do you have the square center floor piece that sits right in the walkthrough area? As you can see in my post above I'm stumped as to how to get this piece out. Judging from the photos above mastercrafttristar 190 was able to somehow replace his carpet there.

I have the center sections of floor out of my 1989 Tristar right now and I can confirm that there is wood that is fiberglassed on the bottom of the removable floor sections. Mine was completely rotted and was very springy.

Has anyone had any luck finding information on how to remove the front section of floor? I would like to replace the carpet and need help.

Hmmm.
I have my center sections out too and just took another look. Mine have fiberglass on all sides of each panel but maybe there is a wooden core in the thicker parts. Can you actually see the wood on yours?
As for getting out that front section . . . when you figure it out let me know!!! Maybe I'll have to PM mastercrafttristar 190 dude since he doesn't seem to be following this thread anymore.
