Does the gas cap screw on as far as it did with the old one? I'll stop and see if I picked up that size - Thanks.

I was reading on the gas caps yesterday and the manufacturer recommends changing them every 5 years.

Thanks for the search but they don't seem to be very helpful. They both reference this site:

http://mymastercraft.hostedbyamazon....oduct=Capacity

but it does not seem very well maintained with no contact information.

Sadly, I agree with you. But you could try giving them a call.

Charlotte Ski Boats has a collection of capacity stickers also; you might be able to use one of those.

I Called Charlotte Marine and spoke to Brandon, he was very helpful but said that the number I found was discontinued. He said their web site needs to be updated because it list all of Mastercraft’s part and most of the older parts (before 2007, interior & decals) have been discontinued.

He recommend a sign shop across the street that makes capacity stickers for them but I did not get any answer.

It's amazing with Google that is you change a few words how it changes the results, I found a site that sells replacement stickers!!

http://garzonstudio.com/capacities-decal/4x4-a.html

I have not ordered it yet but I plan on it. The 4x4 Type A matches the one on my boat!!

Excellent find! And you can specify any number of persons that you want!

I'd suggest starting a new thread with a useful title like "FOUND! Replacement capacity stickers" and including a link to the site you found so that the next person looking for them can find them easily too.

Perhaps throw in one of the pictures of capacity plates in this thread, suggesting that people post their capacity stickers also for future reference.

That's a grea idea. I just ordered one. I'll post a pic when I get it and I will start a thread. Reference pics would be a good idea, I certainly could not read mine. I was getting discouraged because most threads just died.

Would my 98 Maristar had a power motor cover? When I bought the boat the 1 pc. sun deck was not fastened, but all I have is the 2 hinges in the back and 2 gas struts, one on each side.

This is what I have:







Just so it's not confusing, I have the fiberglass center rear seat section sitting where the motor should be.

I forgot to take a picture of the sun deck pad to see how it would lock on that bracket.

How would the motor have been fastened?

Thanks, Steve

Yes, there is a powered hydraulic actuator that sits in the port locker which is wired to a switch right behind the throttle arm. I just traded in my '98 maristar, otherwise I'd hook you up with a picture. This motor always scared me that it would wear out one day...my kids loved to play with the button to raise/lower the sundeck. I'm sure someone else will be along shortly with details, but thought I would chime in to try to help.
