I'm new here; so please bear with me.
I was under the impression that Mastercraft was all composit and no wooden stringers. Where would the rot come from? Also what areas have foam and can that get soaked other than holes in the hull? I just switched from Correct Craft for that very reason. Bought a 1998 Prostar 190 hoping to get as much enjoyment from this boat as well.
I think I'm going to like this site as soon as I learn how to use it.

Today was a good day but also rather stressful. We got it off the trailer. It came off a lot easier than I thought. Although I could not have done it without my brother in law. Jake was a true gift from God. I will post some pictures later tonight. All the bad parts have been cut out and the area is drying. We will start glassing next weekend. Thanks for all the comments.

Any idea how the damage happened? Did it occur since you purchased it, or was it there before?

Looks like it took a pretty good hit.....

It appeared to happen while loading. The two skids weren't covered correctly and they had a sharp edge. So when we loaded the boat with the trailer not far enough in the water then the boat would hit the front of the skid pretty hard causing the damage. So after we fix the whole we will take care of the skids as well.

Have you talked to the previous owner about it? Seems like it should have been disclosed.
