Installed my "home made" version of a flush-pro, it worked great. "Summerized" the boat and then changed the raw water impeller. Inspected the hoses and placed an order to Skidim for new wire reinforced hoses. I'll have to get a picture of my flushing kit.

Took it on its maiden voyage?

Just bought my first ski boat. A 2001 prostar 205v. Just a hair over 300 hours and original owner took great care of it. Went to lake berryessa to try it out and weather was perfect. Not a breeze out and, once on the main body of the lake, water was dead flat.

Boat ran flawlessly! Everything worked ( but the stereo crapped out for some reason) and not a rattle or squeak. I must say I was blown away with how solid and smooth this thing is. It looks like brand new and ran like a swiss watch.

Can't wait to the kids are home from college in a few days to take them out boarding and tubing!

Washed from top to bottom. Cleaned and 303'd seats, acid washed and polished and waxed hull, acid washed and sanded and oiled teak.

Busy day - installed a support under the rear bench, 2 new pop up cleats, and wake watchers on the dock, then put her to work trying to learn deep water starts on slalom.
