And, nice looking boat too.
I don't know the full story behind it, only that during the pro tour 1998 they had to make mods to the hull and rudder. One of these MC experts on here I am sure can speak to it

I think some of them had porpusing (sp?) issues, maybe? so they came up with a different rudder design. I remember reading something about it on here maybe six months ago.

That hull reportedly was prone to chine lock. The winged rudder corrected the issue from what I've been told. Also there are 2 versions of the rudder. The more recent has the wings parallel with the drive shaft.

I know Captain Planet can tell you all you need to know about the boat since he owns its twin.

Congrats on the purchase. One of my favorite color schemes!!

Thanks it does have the winged rudder and a 4th fin under it. I am usually out on Lake Nokomis until they drop the water. Then usually on the WI river in town. I ski with the Kwahomot's so spend a lot of time on the river. The trailer is in great shape and has the metal flake fenders.

I just got a '98 Prostar190. Now I have another question. Mine has the inserts and the winged rudder and also four tracking fins. I hope I didn't buy a problem boat as I didn't get to run it before purchase. The season was over and it had been winterized. A bit of paranoia is setting in here.
