inexpensive (relatively) raw water pumps available -

http://www.amazon.com/Johnson-Pump-1...er+pump+F6B+-9

So the work was buying the pump - Cloaked enabled me with his ugly bearing picture in this thread... http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=52908 #8

That helps, I was gonna ask how you got your boat to hang upside down from the ceiling.... If you take pictures with the side buttons on top, your upside down.

Just having fun.

My trailer needs four new springs. I guess there is a down-side to having a tandem trailer.

Don't forget that middle thingy on the tandem trailer suspension... - ok to keep tryin' to close me on a set of super hot tires and wheels....

It's closed because it is a competition slalom tug, intended mainly for pulling skiers and not for pleasure boating. MasterCraft started making the open bow PS 205 in the early 90s. this is a slalom hull as well, but has additional space for seating in the bow. PS205s are very popular and command a price premium. If you need the space, I'd suggest getting a different boat than the one you have

Nothing better than a good motivational speech. If a picture is worth a thousand words...

SportStar 19 open bow and ProStar 195 are also older open bows with great wakes.
