1994 MC Maristar 200 FI/DD Project

Let the fun begin, lol. Well, after waiting about three weeks, I was finally able to pick up my Maristar that needs some love. The boat was sitting on foam blocks in the guy's yard who I bought the boat from. I originally bought a used trailer to try and retrofit it to fit the boat. Of course the trailer didn't work out. I found out the hard way that unless it is a factory trailer then it is almost impossible to find a used trailer that would fit my boat with having the direct drive. I'm not one to cut corners on safety, so I wanted to make sure I had a trailer that would fit the boat perfectly. I ended up having an custom boat trailer built to fit the boat. I am extremely happy I went this route. I had it built locally at a place called Charleston Trailer. I can't say enough about these guys. They built a solid trailer and used aluminum bunks instead of wood. Their customer service is probably the best that I've ever experienced. The owner actually drove out to where the boat was located and loaded boat into the trailer from the blocks, free of charge. Then he towed the boat back to his shop and made final adjustments to ensure of a perfect fit with the hull and the trailer. Anyways, I'm ready to dig in and get my hands dirty. The interior is trashed. I'm not even sure if any of the foam cushions is salvageable. I'll know more of what I'm getting into as I go through the boat. I will post pictures of the progress as I go along. I look forward to getting this boat back out on the water. How someone could let this boat get in this condition is beyond me. How the hell do you break a steering wheel in half too?
