Thumbs up Glad the post's were of some help

It is nearing the end of another Beautifull season, and the 99' Maristar has ran flawlessly with just under 600 hours. I'm wondering how many more hours I can get out of her, with regular tune-up's and good preventative maintenance practices.

It seems that whatever unfortunate circumstance that we have come across in our 5 year MasterCraft voyage, has been thwarted by sound Design and a Terrifically Well Engineered Craft. Our Maristar has really been great to us.

We feel that even when, or If, the motor ever goes out, that we would replace it with a New one and keep missy floating and in the family for the duration. With Sleek Old-School Lines and Timeless Style, we feel that MasterCraft hit another Home Run, with this Sport Luxury Classic.

Good luck on your resoration's and rebuilds. I'm sure all of your boat's will turn out great!

Sam in Cal

At 600 hours, she's hardly broke in. With the kind of care that you have and will continue to provide to that boat, it may last a lifetime. I recently bought a 98 Marastar and I absolutely love it. Of all the MC boats I've owned (this was #7), this may be my favorite.

Added 60 hours this summer on my '99 (477 total). New interior last winter. Does it all. Skied, wake boarded, tubed & bobbed in the waves with friends. Plenty of power (330 hp) and room for 11. Sad to say but this may be the last weekend for us.

Me too, until I remembered how guilt ridden I got for not having spent that kind of time making mine look like that.

Lightbulb Boat Buddy Modification - Retrofit

This is a step by step walk-thru of the BoatBuddy Mod that you can do with your boat on the trailer in your driveway. Unlike other BoatBuddy mod's that require glue, this one does not.

This application will eliminate or greatly minimize rubber marks left from the BoatBuddy on the nose of your boat.

1. Chock the wheels & Crank-up your boat jack as high as it will go.

2. Measure the distance from the bottom part of the stainless buckle to the ground and cut out a 2" x 4" to that distance. You can also put a "V" notch at the top of 2 x 4 so buckle will fit nicely.

3. Slowly lower the trailer jack and the 2 x 4 will hold the boat up so that you can remove boat buckle.

4. Shove a Folded Towel under the front bunk in case the 2 x 4 slips or there is an earthquake & Remove entire Boat Buddy with a 3/4" socket and 3/4" opened end wrench.

5. Copy sketch and cut out Marine Grade Carpet.

6. Separate Metal from rubber on Boat Buddy. Start With carpet template by pushing larger side of template into BoatBuddy and wrap all the way around. Put a hole so that the 1/8" x 1/8" square you see in pic can protrude thru carpet, and finish off by pushing the skinny trim piece of carpet thru with a screwdriver.

7. Insert metal into Boat Buddy and Reinstall boat Buddy on boat.

8 Tighten boat Buddy main Bolt, Remove towel, lower boat and secure...


Sorry about pics not being with captions. I didn't want a service to stop carrying photos, and so I placed them on the Teamtalk server.
