That's not a prostar 190 is it? With that base under the drivers seat looks like a tri-star or maybe a barefoot edition boat?

How about some pics of the boat itself? Let's see what you have there sir.
Going to pick it up the 10th of January I hope. What is the actual HP of the 454? I have read anything from 350, 375, and 390 for the regular and 425 for the HO. Any ideas?

Check out those Goodyear Marathons carefully. Make sure they are inflated to their max pressure as stated on the sidewall.

Color options for the 5th gen were straight out of the 80s and not my cup of tea. Glad I finally found one with a big engine and a neutral color scheme.

Yeah, I noticed them as well. We have had Marathons on the family Rinker for years, they do get a bit soft if not pumped way up.

Thanks

One of the guys in our club has a Gekko GTO22 with a 366 CI, 390hp monster. It did almost pull my arms off the first time I got behind it, Im thinking this new MC will be about the same.

Here is what I have from the current owner.









Looks to be taken care of and in pretty good shape considering the 500 hours on the clock
