87 prostar 190 resto

I picked this prostar up from a guy on a local lake here in greenville sc.its a one owner boat but had been very neglected. it sat on the water at his dock since 2005 and was covered with algae and everything else imaginable as well as some serious dock rash.the motor was trashed with sand on two cylinders and locked up to say the least. this is very unfortunate since the hour meter only showed 348 hours.I finally got the hull cleaned up and the stripes repainted with imron.then sanded and buffed the rest.I dropped in a new motor and had to clean up some wiring. I took it to the lake last week and it runs great! Of course I had to install an acme 541 prop because I love how they perform.so with my part being done I took a four hour trip yesterday and left the boat at viper customs in Tennessee to let Jim put his touches on a total interior overhaul..I can't wait to get it back on the water!!!

If its an iPhone, download an app call picup. Makes it super easy to post pics.
They may have an app for android too, not sure.

thanks for workin to save her..keep up the great work! Can't wait to see interior.

Seized up with sand? What do you think happened....sucked up sand near beach and overheated?

What kind of masking is that? Is it pressure sensitive or heat sensitive once you decide which part to remove?
