Yep, GB - I ski out of wrightstown every monday and thursday at 6:00 PM (or so) - those are the days when I have a spotter available, I'm around other days too if anyone is looking for a pull

Wow dude, it is like looking at my boats long-lost twin brother! Awesome to see that you went with a similar pattern and glad to hear Jim treated you well. I have not been reading posts too often lately - using my free time up on the lake as much as possible, but I had to see how progress was going - you did great!

You were absolutely my inspiration ;-)

Thanks for all the pointers - my ski season got cut really short when my daughter (tubing) collided with a floatable out in the lake and bruised her eyeball (resulted in a cataract which will require surgery).

Looking at winterizing already :-(

That is terrible to hear. I hope she is doing well.

I've decided to sell the boat in this thread in favor of a bigger, more family-friendly boat (I bought a new Prostar X-14V.. oh boy, can't wait till it gets here!)

If anyone is seriously interested in buying the boat in this thread, please drop me a line. I have half a mind to just trade it in to the dealer, which means that if you're at all serious about a perfectly restored Prostar 190 with a 425HP 7.4L 454-HO, you would be getting a great deal. As you can tell if you do the math in this thread, I've got over $20,000 into this boat, plus a year of labor (labor of love)

I've put it in the marketplace for $13,500. Boat has 950 hours - top end was rebuilt at 904, bottom was rebuilt at 450 - should be years before you need to do anything more than change the oil, raw water pump, fuel filter, and maybe tranny fluid every few years. You can make me an offer, but I think my asking price is more than fair.

http://www.mastercraft.com/market/sh...p?product=4326

Here's the difference between the $6500 boat I bought and the one you'd be buying:
NDT Tower ($2200)
950W JL class D dual-amp stereo with kenwood head end. ($1500)
Dual bullet HLCDs on the tower, JL marine sub under the bow. JBL-652 house speakers. ($1000)
Completely new electrical system front to back. (starter, ignition, coil, alternator, batteries converted to a dual-battery system, all new 00-gauge electrical) ($1000)
3-event perfect pass cruise control system ($1000)
All new carpet and brand new interior - vinyl work by Jim Jackson at Viper Customs ($2000)

Oh, and of course all the gelcoat and engine work, which I consider table stakes to buy a boat of this quality (that's were the rest of the money is in this project)

jconover, thanks for such a great thread. You are either one talented guy or just a crazy ba$%ard with a lot of patience. The boat looks fantastic! Good luck with the sale.

Great thread! Always fell bleak when the boat gets sold in the end, not sure I could do that myself!
