Ok, so I have a question. The deck plate behind the motor was missing when I got the boat. Is it one piece or two, and how far aft should it go? I would think there would be a pull ring latch or something for easier access to the steering gear.

In my 94 Prostar, this is a single piece of aluminum honeycomb material, covered with carpet. It is held in place with 4 screws and the engine cover hinges are attached to the forward end of it. It can be an awkward thing thing to remove, but it works well in place.

I have the prostar version but you can see by this picture that it only goes back as far as the gas tank. This allows you to remove it without taking our the tank.


Material stated above is correct. Honeycomb. Mine sits in there tight and is not screwed down.

The honeycomb is hard to find. I had to rebuild my sun deck two years ago which was made of honey comb. I ended up buying a 1" sheet of starboard and using it. It adds weight which isn't a bad thing in a wake boat.

Holy Cow! That boat was in crazy bad shape. The dash is freaking awesome. I actually have '91 240SC that I haven't run much in the last couple of years. About to start a similar project, although mine isn't near as bad as where you started. I do have to wait until I get the engine back online (ignition troubles). I'll try and get some pics this evening. I'll be watching your post closely to see how she comes out, but you're off to an awesome start.

Did you make the dashboard yourself? If so, could give some tips? I may try the same.

Nice dash refurb, Is that a new OEM steering wheel?

Thanks chief. No, the steering wheel is actually an eBay buy and I had the steering wheel center mc logo made by a place that does custom car center cap logos.

I am looking to see if anyone is interested in buying and finishing this boat. The good news is that I bought a new house. The bad news is that I battled with my HOA for months to keep the boat at my house and lost. It makes it too difficult to finish this project without having it at my house to work on. It breaks my heart to sell it because I have put countless hours into this boat. The only thing left to do is replacing the upholstery and carpet. I really donít have any idea how much to ask for the boat? I have also installed a Bimini top that is not located in the pictures.
