New Mastercraft owner - 2001 Prostar 209

Hello,
This past weekend I purchased my first Mastercraft. I owned a Supra Comp for many years and finally decided to upgrade to something bigger. I got tons of tips on maintenance and repair on the Supra talk I mostly waterski but my friends and family are wakeboarders. The boat has a ballast system and a full tower so I am excited to take advantage of that.

First things first, are there any issues with the engine (Predator) that I could do any preventative maintenance to avoid any kind of time off the water this summer? The engine has 445 hours on it and just had it at the dealer for a full compression and running test, and everything went fine.

The rear seat needs replacement and am planning on taking it off and sending it to copycat to have them make me a new skin.

I really can't wait to get it on the water this summer!

I have the same boat with the LTR engine. Has been great! Put 300 hours on it the last 2 summers with no problems except a bad engine ground cable.

Pulls me footin with 5 people in the boat and we fill the ballast and throw back rolls, tantrums, half cabs all day long!

You'll love it!

BTW: You should send a PM to either Sodar or TTAdmin about your "guest" account. Either one of them can fix you up.
