That was a great find. BTW, how did you come upon this boat? Was it a flood damaged boat or stolen or what?
I like that sound too.I am thinking to open a off-shore mastercraft renovation shop .
I bought to boat without engine and wait to renovate until find a suitable engine.Then I find this STEYR and you see the result ,history of the The boat used as commercial water sports and very badly treated left in the sea and under the sun.Check the 1st thread.

I am looking for a V-Hull mastercraft or similar to make a new boat,PM ,if you know any.

You did a super job, congrats, did some of it to my old ps 190 jear 1991 some years ago, will try to find pictures to share. Although I did not have to replace the motor (ford mustang v8) I have redone the electrics (2 batt. Setup), new gauges (took also faria) and dash (stainless steel, laser cut outs).

You should consider ading a tower. Seems that you have an elastic rope which makes wakeboarding not that easy. Where do you fix that rope (at the pole) and how?

On that river and with that boat you should go for a testdrive with mono as well as barefoot (try to build one of these barefootbooms).

Also, Perfectpass or Zero Off would be a nice add on, a lot more quality of the pull!

Refurbisment of a x80

Today I found an X80 , I know very well how to fit diesel engines to these boats and I had also found a very nice steyr engine also in USA ,I have to find another engine in good condition or destroy my 190 and put the the 2 engines on this boat. I have flexible feelings buying it ,it will not cost me much to transport it to Turkey($5000).
It is also very likely that we do not need diesel engines on it ,we can fix the currents here in turkey.Here are my problems:

I need to find a garage to store it and do some fix in the USA before I will transport it to Turkey,Such a removing the current engines and placing the STEYR temporarily.

I need to know the engine room size of X80 and some detail photos.

I need to know the transmission box type of the X80s.

Maybe I should open another forum thread but I prefer to do this when I will decide to buy the boat.

Also I may not need the current engines ,If anybody interested I can sell the engines.(Thinking loud)

I'll continue to watch and keep up the great and amazing work! Man, that's some rough water!
