Looks like it's in the front and the rear areas.

Not mine anymore. I miss her. They did make a few closed bow 35th 190s. Even sexier IMO.

35ths were the benchmark in my opinion, there were so many unique design elements that made the boat “special”, I had #11 ��

Introduction of low profile trailers

Chrome dash elements

Chrome underwater gear

Chrome ski pylon

Polk MoMo stereo system

Special gel scheme with retro stars

LQ9 with aluminum exhaust and engraved engine mount

Stainless windshield

Fiberglass platform with inlaid teak

The boat if i recall correctly had design inputs from TMC #1 Harold..rip

That boat was truely unique and a genuine head turner, owning 1 of 35 was a unique experience!

As to the 190 version, i think there were 2 made....one was in Michigan and the other i knew of was to owners of Arizona MasterCraft Deb

35th 190s, they was/is 5 total

It's still my favorite too. 1 in Austraila (I heard), 4 in US. There was 1 for sale last summer, I heard it fell a fork lift and had to have the nose redone. Otherwise, I haven't seen another 35th 190 forever (ha).
I'm not sure of the 50th yet, need to see in person or a lot more pictures.

I gave it a little thought...

Black with a gold flake, retro but reimagined Stars and Stripes flowing with the lines of the boat. Gold flake has real gold flakes... black stars and gold master craft are in the gel, no decals. Number inset and interior badge combo are inset and cladded in real gold. Retro T-top with net, gold snowflake trailer wheels like the bandit trans am. Gold plated throttle knob, vents, exhaust tips etc, gold powder coated supercharger option. 50th edition custom slalom ski fitted to the buyer at a special factory delivery for all 50 Prostars.

They should have done a gold Stars and Stripes edition. White and gold. Drop the black. Everyone has black nowadays and they needed to go retro. Let's face it, the people who are buying the ski boats these days don't go for trendy and would have killed for a retro scheme S&S in gold flake.

Biggest disappointment is that people are not going to buy these and flood the used market with mega clean 35th anniversary and 93' S&S that normal people can afford...

The 35th is still my favorite, and I own a 40th.

And nobody outside of the factory had any input in the design, despite the rumor mill.

35th is my favorite at this point. Love to have the modern Prostar boat characteristics in the 35th, but you can't have everything.

To give the 50th a chance, we'll have to see it int the daylight and on the water. And a lot more pictures or in person.
