11K is fine. 10K is better. At 10K, if it has the 4010 carb, you have some money to plop down on a 4160, and trust me, you'll want to do that (remove the cowl and see if it has two fuel feeds on the starboard side of the carb---that's the 4010). When it was a 94 at $11k, and now it's a 92, you don't have to worry about telling the seller why you want it for less.

That said, despite the wonderfulness of fuel injection, you can bolt on some mid range torque to that 351HO without much trouble or too much $$. They are all sorts of fun.

Be sure to hit up the FAQ section and print out the boat buyer's guide. It's helpful to have some ideas of what to look at so you don't just sit there and excitedly look at that pretty boat.

Look at it this way: $9k - 11k is a decent range.... you're on the high side but the boat warrants it as well. If that were a 1200 hour boat (which is still low hours) that needed new skins and carpet, etc....I'd want to be on the low side (closer to $8.5K).

A 94 205 with EFI would be a deal for $11K but it's just not that year model.

If you get a junker somewhere else, you'll spend that delta and more on making it pURDy....Drop the cash and enjoy it and don't look back.

I paid $12k for a 93 190 with 421 hours in 2012. Worth it then and now. Yea, I'd like to have gotten it for 10 or 11 but it was there, in great shape so I jumped on it. I have put another $13k in upgrades. Still in my shop today.
I've been following this thread. I will likely never own a '92 205 but i like learning about this stuff.

Waterlogged, what have you all put into your '93 that totaled $13k?? can we get some pics?

To the OP here is my thought. If you have a boat that runs every time you go to use it and it's a mastercraft you're a lucky man. buy that thing!

I'm not much on posting "look at me" type stuff but since you ask...here are a few pictures. I took the entire boat apart and reassembled with the above...mostly all in one winter layup period. I have other costs not listed but this is the majority of the costs.

I was working away on this thing and finished it up for the coming season. One day I cleaned out my email and sorted mail that related to electronic transactions etc. So I decided to put the items in Excel (mistake for a hobby). It added up quickly. Never put your hobby in an Excel sheet.

Several large numbers from above: PerfectPass, skins, carpet, GT40P heads, two platforms, dual batteries......I also used (undocumented) a lot of stainless hardware from the local store and Graingers.

I moved the battery from the rear to the front (duals) so that required all new cable runs, etc.

I have recently rewired the boat with another $500 in material alone.

The engine is coming out this fall for a bottom up rebuild (upping the HP) that will run another estimated $5000 all-inclusive, and my labor for lifting, re-setting, and aligning is free to me...

Thank you for the kind words.... It's a labor of love for me.

Things like this are what people do not realize that comes with the price of boats that have been restored. That is a perspective I consider when buying.....base price plus how much more will it cost me? I am usually upside down within one month of a purchase.

I did an 81 in 2017... Low base cost and put another $6,300 in it (stringers, etc).
