That looks like a great idea Maristarman. I like the boat buddy, but hate the mark it leaves on the nose of the boat. It comes off easy enough, just a pain to clean every time. Thanks for the detailed instructions.

Lightbulb Boat Buddy->Why stop there->How about a New 400hp Engine and Tranny...?

I wondered why Boat Buddy hasn't designed something similar into their product as I'm sure many Boat Owners complain about the marks.

I actually tried the glue one time and after it dried, the glue peeled off of the boat buddy's rubbery parts. I don't like to use glue for anything except craft projects...lol

On another note, Lake Tulloch should be at Ski-Boat-Launch-Depth this week! Of course the aluminum boats can get out anytime, but it will be exciting to finally get out on the water after another long winter season.

Lastly, I found a light coating of oil in my bilge, and it looks like it may be coming from the oil-filled transmission. Can't tell yet but if it is, I may need to rebuild some seals or similar. I had been contemplating re-powering her with a 400hp new engine and a new transmission, or even Buying a newer Boat.

After all the work you've done to yours, I'd think you would want to keep it for a good long while. The Maristar is a good all around boat. We got ours late in the summer last year, but still managed to put about 40 hours on it. We really enjoyed it, great family boat.

Same thing last summer in my 1998 Maristar. Turned out to be a leaky transmission hose. Easy (and cheap) fix. Good luck.

The Maristar is an all around good boat, however I have been wanting to have the family learn to surf and the current Maristar doesn't lend itself to that. I thought about adding ballast tanks, but I'm not sure if they sell them. I prefer the stock hard tanks, and then adding bags if I need it.

SP Maristar, where did you get the bimini that attaches to the windshield that you have pictured above? I have a 1999 Maristar 230VRS, and I want to get a bimini, and I like the windshield mount over drilling holes in the fiberglass. Is that a stock mastercraft bimini, or aftermarket? If anyone else has info on this, please post in! Thanks!
