Well it's been a really long time since I posted an update. The transmission never ran right. I've now gotten a new rebuilt and it works great. The rear seat has been added. I've also gotten my hands on a boom. I've also come to the realization I need more speed. I'm getting 43.6 mph with Gps on my phone with just me in the boat and no skier and I need 45-48 for one footers and barefoot slalom. Leaning towards starting a barefoot boat project as that's rapidly turning into my passion.

I seem to recall that you had some carb issues. Did you ever get them worked out? You might be able to tweak another mph with some tuning, but 44 -45 mph is about max for a stock set-up. You might gain a little with GT40P heads and an improved intake manifold. If footing has become the passion, you might be better off going after a Barefoot 200.

Just hearing this I want to welcome you to my World... I am 250 with a 90 190...... The extra speed is a must... However with the shape of your 190 Hull you will not get much more... Great Project.... Thanks for bringing her back to Life!

Yea, Im 180 with a size 8.5/9 foot. I did manage 44.7 mph with 3 people in the back seat. But it didnt get there that fast. Its been awesome knowing the boats back to life. Im on the lookout for a Barefoot 200, or a sanger dxii.

Man, what an amazing transformation. You are truly gifted. Thank you for posting all of the pictures. Honestly though, pictures make novices (like me) think we can do more than we actually can. It is apparent that you spent a lot of time, money and patience on this project. You now know the ins and outs of that boat. WOW!

Hello, Super impressed, like most everyone else on the thread. What did you do for exhaust? Our 1990 PS 190 has some issues - mainly water entering the bilge, and I believe it is exhaust related. I don't mind doing the entire exhaust, but I was told parts are unavailable, and I don't know what my order sheet would even look like. Anyone know for sure what I need to redo the exhaust from the manifolds to the water?
