It's unusual, at the least. I am unaware of any Fords, or any carbs for that matter, in MCs 94 and newer. If it is, in fact, an OEM 94 with a carbureted Ford, it must have been a carryover engine from 93. Post that hull ID if/when you have a chance.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Had a 93' PS205 exactly like the pic, minus the tower. The shape of the drivers seat says it is a 93 or newer. The 92's had a different drivers seat. Could be a 94 though, I too am waiting to see what the hull ID code is.

I could have sworn I saw one of your older posts recently when you said it was a 93. Double check your Hull ID. You may have a super rare 94 with a carbureted Ford.

That's what I thought too. ^^^^^ (a 93')

This is a funny discussion... But I am in the camp that it is a '93 as well. I thought its been well documented on here that the 205 started going with EFI in '94.

Regardless, that boat looks amazingly clean for a 19 yr old boat.

Haha maybe it is a 93. Honestly I do not remember when I bought the boat. When I first saw it all I knew is I wanted it. I will get the hull ID and double check everything. I will also post pictures of the owners manual and everything included.
