Really great to hear the project worked out for you so well. It was an extremely interesting thread to follow. I have not seen another diesel-powered conversion on here since.

Diesel Conversion,after using the boat so long time,I ca say that I did not have any problems mechanically but,the meditrenean see is so rough for a prostar,if the wind is over 7knot the waves make the voyages a little tiring.Fuel Economy is great,you can fill the tank and forget for a couple of weekends.My transmission ratio was 2:1 only thing I complain is this issue since mastercraft need more rev. other then the torque.I wish a professional skier or wakeboarder try it give their opinion.

Yeah, these flat bottom boats are not made for big sea's. I live close to Lake Erie near Cleveland, Ohio and will not take my boat up there.... Inland lakes only for me...

Gearbox

Engine is 4200 @rpm and it needs 1.15 or 1.25 max 1.5 to 1
2:1 is not t'he right gearbox,the prop is very high pitch with high diameter efficiently made 42.5 knots ,i am hoping to change t'he gearbox and reach 50 knots
