Powerslot

In your opinion, is upgrading a 1:1 borg warner to a 1.5:1 transmission in my 1989 Prostar 190 a good idea. Its week as is.

My boat isn't the best for footing. And I'm slowly rebuilding the boat.

Put a good 13x12 cnc prop on it, you'll have all you want. Higher altitudes a 13x11.5 would probably work best. Powerslot is actually better for slalom speeds anyways. You already have the high speed transmission.

Also I think you will have to alter the hull for the larger diameter prop, not sure on that one though.

Ideally if footing is that big a concern, sell, and buy a barefoot boat

Do you guys think the used Mastercraft market will start getting a little lean with new boats costing about $80,000+....?

Yes I do.. All open bow models will be hard to find and the ones available will sell at top dollar. Now of course that is just my opinion.. New boat prices will continue to raise until the consumer stops paying 80K + for a toy. Of course there will be some that money is not an issue or credit doesn't fail them. Again this is just my opinion and that plus $1.25 might get you a cup of coffee at the local café...

When the consumer starts backing off the high dollar priced boats, look for base/economy models to start being offered. But remember, if MC made a base/economy line of boats, Moomba wouldn't be in business..

I would really love to buy a 205 or 209 open bow Prostar, but don't really have the money to pay cash for one since it might be hard to get a bank loan for a 15-18 year old boat. I'm hoping that there are still some out there when I do have enough money.
