Definitely want fuel injection and have mixed feelings on a open/closed bow.
I wanted one I saw on Craigslist but unless I sell my old one first I'm limited to about 10k.

Guess I'm getting antsy worrying about selling my old one and finding a new one. Don't enjoy the shopping process!
Got any photographs of your current 82?

Thanks

The boat is on a lift at the lake. Going today for a little waterskiing and can take a couple of photos. Mechanically no issues but in need of some work before I sell it. Will reclear the sides, new decals, etc. Also touch up on the trailer and repair/replace the winch.
Anyway, I ll post photos of current condition later today.

Here is a nice boat that is close to your price range and in great shape.

And bonus, cheaper than the newer ones!
Same here but either carb or FI was OK with me. If your preferences are the same and you are looking $16k and under - hard to beat a PS205. And you'll find lots for sale if you're not in a hurry. Some are dogged out, some are pristine...always buy the best maintained you can find.

Terrible thing to do for a restoration (the next guy that wants to buy). Leave it be. The next guy that has to sand it out will appreciate it. Clear is nothing but a band-aid and a pain in the a ss to try and sand through.

I'm looking for a boat to rebuild but it has to be cheap.

Thanks for any photos of your 82. Just curious as to the color scheme, etc.

A bit over $16K, and a bit of a road trip, but I would seriously consider this one

The Prostar 195, sportstar OB, or X5 might be a good choice if you are leaning toward open bow. I bought my 2000 Prostar 195 within your budget. Very good ski hulls (based on 95-97 Prostar 190) for the dedicated, and the open bow allows you to take a group out for a day on the lake. We really love ours.

Btw. That's a cool looking S&S. If you end up selling, I have a friend who might be interested.

Late 90s maristar 225 should be in that range. I had one for a little while it was a great boat
