The backboard for my SN coaming pads is a thin plastic and it has bowed. I need to put some weather stripping in the gap so I don't notice it.
You moved into a super nice looking Nautique....

Yeah, it's been a good fit for us. The right boat at the right time.

Question for 4th generation owners... How wet is the back seat on the 91-94 models ? And are the 190's and 205's comparable ? I know in my 88 prostar, you don't want to sit back there unless you don't mind getting wet.

About the same, maybe a little less. I just focus on getting up on plane and moving on in a moderate speed to minimize spray. Seems to work OK. However I have not had my back seat in since 2012.

What's a back seat? I don't recall the spray being bad for back seat passengers assuming wind wasn't a factor. The spray kicks straight up, but is fairly well controlled for those in the boat staying dry.

The 92--95 205 ski wake is fairly comparable to the 91--94 190. Firm low bump. Maybe a little firmer in the 205. The deviation between the 95--97 190 and the 96--2000 205 is a bit more divergent.

We have a '98 190. I know there aren't too many on this forum raving about that particular year...but, comparing it to my friends '94 205 the wake is very similar. Our back seat stays dry until the wind picks up. With a significant "chop" there isn't much skiing anyway and no "back seat drivers." Wind direction is the call. You will really like the '94 you're looking at. Looks like a very well kept boat.
Best wishes and enjoy...

Yep, the wetness in the back is directly related to wind speed and direction. Generally the back seat is the best ride in that generation as long as the wind isn't blowing the spray in your face!

Also, I know everyone bags on the Holley 4010 carb, but mine was perfect for the 10 years I owned that boat. I used it regularly and stabilized the fuel and had no problems.

This is my first real ski boat and am pumped.

Thats a cool story. Yeah the carburated Ford will be fine. More improvement flexibility.

Only other thought is the prop. If its not a Acme 541, get one.

Most wet people get it in my back seat is when we have a footer on the boom, and maybe on windy days depending on direction.

Mine has the same wood. I cant find any pictures I took in the past when mounting my LED's and I am not going to go rip it off to prove it. Just need to trust me.. I must have the low end model as well..
