What should I be looking for? Pay special attention to? ;quote]

So what happened that was yesterday.............you know on here we always want to know
Went by and saw the boat. Actually, he let me take it to the lake for the weekend; however, I seemed to have forgotten to tell the Mrs. that I would be bringing a boat to test. After I got there, I decided to take it back in the interest of marital harmony....ie...she was pissed So, I'll pick my battles and wait for a better color
Some cracking on the seats, yes the fender was busted, boat started great and sounded great. Has rained 2" here today, so I did not miss out on anything.
Wished I could have skied behind her thanks for the input.
Price was gonna be around 10,500.

Definitely keep it. My son won the NCAA Wakeboard Championships while at Tennessee in 2011 and that puppy will always be around. Plumbed in ProBallast this year. She's a surfing, boarding, and foiling machine!!!

I bought this boat July 23. After a 33-year absence from skiing, I’ve slalomed behind it. My girlfriend skied behind it after a 25-year absence from skiing. I’ve also taught four kids to ski with it.

I bought it after looking at a 1997 ProStar 190 here in Florida and then borrowing a pickup from a friend and heading to Tennessee and North Carolina with a list of four ProStar 190s for sale – two 1994s, a 1995, and a 1997. After looking at all five boats, I bought this 1994 for the reportedly superior slalom wake.

Thanks to all who have contributed to this valuable forum over the years. While searching for a boat and since making this purchase, I’ve spent many hours on this forum learning from you.

Glad to hear you got yourself a nice 190! Loved my '94 and love my '93 Limited even more!
BTW I have a friend moving to FLA near Lake Weir. How is that lake for skiing? My friend was hoping to hook up with some boat owners down there since he's been boatless for 2 years.
He mostly wakeboards

The Lake Weir area consists of Lake Weir, which shrinks down in one portion called Sunset Harbor, Little Lake Weir, and a canal that connects Sunset Harbor and Little Lake Weir. Locals refer to them as the “big lake” and the “little lake.” Both lakes have long been used for water sports in this area.

The water is down about seven feet from historic norms. We need several tropical storms/hurricanes. You can walk around the ends of many docks. The big lake and the little lake have pan shaped bottoms and are smaller than normal but are still safe for water sports for the most part. However, a county parks official told me a few weeks ago he won’t let his children do water sports in Sunset Harbor now because of high spots in the lake bottom.

As a child, I spent many summer days skiing on the little lake in the early 1970s when a professional with a ramp and slalom course lived on the lake. The ramp is gone, but there is a slalom course. I find more than three boats on the lake make a mess, but I rented a house on this lake earlier this month for two weeks and had the lake to myself most days. The canal is bone dry and there is no public launch facility on the little lake, so traffic is currently limited to what comes off surrounding private property.

At around nine square miles, the big lake is about ten times the size of the little lake. Until buying the 190 recently and getting behind it, I was boatless and away from water sports for decades and don’t know much about wakeboarding. I’ve heard the big lake is considered good by wakeboarders. Local boat dealers have sponsored competitions on it that have been covered by the local paper.

The main public ramps for the big lake are located at a county park on what is known as Carney Island, which is actually a peninsula the county bought from Coke which had it via Minute Maid because it at one time contained orange groves. In 2007, the county spent millions putting in ramps and other amenities. I measured the water depth on the ramps before buying the 190 and determined there was just enough depth to launch it. In the warmest months, these ramps get quite busy on the weekend and are only lightly used other days.
