I have never owned a MasterCraft before but have always wanted one and I could not pass it up for the price. I know I have a lot of work ahead of me but I have restored many other things just not a ski boat.

If anyone can point me in a direction of where I can find a port side wing window and where I can get the weather stripping at. I think that is the only thing that I can't find the rest of the boat is pretty much there just in need of some work.

I talked to a guy that has restored boat finishes for years at MasterCraft in Orlando and he said that he can make this thing shine like new again. Any suggestions?

Also should I remove the top cap of the boat to replace carpet or do I have to? Common sense tells me that It would be easier for carpeting, but I don't know if it would be worth the extra effort just for carpeting.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Stuart

Had an opportunity to speak with Stuart today. Looks like we have the LAST winglet in the world for his 1987 windshield. He is going to be bringing the boat over in the next few weeks to let us see what we can do exterior wise to bring the boat back to a more presentable presentation.

Thanks for you call Stu...look forward to meeting you

Jim@BAWS

PS I have the WINGLET hidden

Don't do like I do, and hide things for safe keeping then, can't find them when I need it!

I met up with Jim @ BAWS and picked up a wing window around the end of Jan. It wasn't a portside like I needed but I might be able to make it work.
I have not been doing much due to the weather and another project I had going on when this one came along.
The weather has really sucked here. It has definitely been colder, longer this year then any I can remember from the past. Unfortunately I don't have a big shop and it has been annoyingly windy and cooler here so it makes it difficult to work on anything outside.
When I did get a break in the weather and the other project I managed to put new water hoses, raw water pump, complete Teleflex steering system and replaced the packing material. I did not think I would have enough room to replace the packing material but I guess 1/4 of shaft is all you need.
I also have some strut bushings to put in that has not been done yet.
This past weekend was the first true water test I actually got it off the trailer and drove it for a short while to see what would happen. It had a very bad vibration so I put it back on the trailer and brought it home.
I read on here before that someone had picked up a vibration after buying a new prop and found out in the end that the prop was not seated correctly on the shaft. So I thought I would look at it.
I removed the prop cleaned up the shaft and tried to put it back on. After trying several times I could not get it to seat properly with the key way in. So I gave DooSPX a call and him and his buddy stopped by and managed to get it seated but it wasn't as easy as I thought it should be.
So today I took it for another run and the vibration was gone. Thanks DooSPX that was cool of you guys to stop by like that and help me out.

I also found out for sure today the rudder is bent. I kind of suspected it. I didn't know how bad it would affect the control but I know now.
Is it possible to get a rudder straitened or does it have to be replaced?
Also the transmission when I bought the boat had some water in the fluid. I have changed it 2 times now and after today's run (less than 5 min) It is still milky.
Is there a way that the tranny can be flushed completely? Similar to like what they do to recondition car and truck trannys at oil change places.
If the tranny cooler is leaking wouldn't there be an oil slick on the water? Is it possible for the cooler to leak water in to the tranny fluid and not tranny fluid into the water?
Any way that's what happnin.
I hope I can get this other boat project done and concentrate on just the prostar.
