glassmaster, that's an awesome job you're doing. When do we get to see pictures of it on the water? Have you figured out what you're going to do about the gelcoat?

Looks like a labor of love is in order - great project opportunity. In the event you may need a Holly carb kit (Ford 351 / '91 Prostar 190), I just bought one on Memorial Day week ($94.75) only to find out I didn't need it after I opened the cellophane - now unreturnable. Found a speck of trash in the front bowl float seats that had caused my problem. If you can use it, I had rather give you a deal on it rather than letting it sit in my garage for possible future use down he road.

Good luck with your restoration project.

A thread back from the dead

I needed some advice on whether or not to restore this boat and sell it or sell it as is to someone so they can do the restore themselves.
I am moving out of the country in 2 months or so and only have a month or so to do the work.
I already have a upholstery guy, someone to paint the trailer, and someone lined up to buff out the boat and replace decals and pin striping.
To do the carpet, upholstery, trailer and buffing would be between $2700-$3000 and could all be done in less than a month.
...but I was wondering what is a reasonable retail price would be for a 87' prostar powerslot with everything restored.
Every place I have seen a boat like this is priced between $6500 up
The boat only has 670 hours and runs very well I have used it the last 4 seasons.
I only have $1500 in it now and have gotten a lot of enjoyment out of it the last 4-5 years even though its not all that pretty now.
I did not have the money to restore it during that time but now I do and was wondering if it would be worth the effort just to sell it restored or as is.
I have more resent pics of where I have wet sanded it to bring back the color and I have also welded together a prop guard that is close to the original and also welded a new winch stand with a boat buddy because the bar was a real pain to use loading and was unsafe. Also I welded 3" brackets to the trailer to give more space between the tires and fenders.

I came here because I know you guys on here know your stuff and give great advice.
So what do you think?

I would sell it as is. It's got enough curb appeal to attract someone looking for a project boat that can be used right away. I don't think you'll get your money back on doing any upholstery work, and whatever you pick might not be to the liking of the potental buyer. You got 4 years of fun out of it and could sell it for $2500ish (or more maybe, hard to say). I'd be happy with that!

Edit: Great job with the trailer upgrades. Did you make the longer shackle brackets or buy those and did you install longer ones on the front or just the back? Good welding, I'd like to increase my trailer height, but I don't think I'd trust my welds yet.....
