2000 Prostar 195 - Your Thoughts...

http://raleigh.craigslist.org/boa/3844407828.html

2000 Prostar 195 - $14,900...10 calls on it, I had to offer more to be in the driver's seat.
233 Hours
Predator engine (probably standard trans but unverified)
Vinyl in great shape, only problem is back seat seams are splitting.
Trailer good, fender damage on left side (not visible). Extensive but should be reparable.
No speed control
Owner and dealer performed maintenance, seen his garage and good vibes there.

Pending a lake test later in the week. What say you, TT? Good price from what you can see? Thanks!

Nice boat. Great slalom hull. Have heard that the open bow hardened the wake slightly, but not enough to be of concern. Price seems a bit high, particularly with repairs necessary on the rear seat and trailer and considering that it doesn't have speed control.

Still, good boat. So if you like the price and can handle the repairs, go for it.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Always appreciate an East TX Skier response

Given that it's boat selling season and I have strict requirements (mid-90s open bow), it's a limited market for me PerfectPass can be a Christmas present for a winter install, along with the fender repair.

Is it possible to repair seams on that seat, or will it need to be reupholstered? The foam seems to be in fine shape and there's no sag in the bench.

I had those same requirements when I bought my boat 5 years ago. That is a fair asking price for that boat. If you can get down to high 13s or 14K final price I think you will have done pretty well for yourself. Not as versatile as the 205 hull but should slalom better. I certainly looked at the few of these that were around when I bought.

As for the seams I'm afraid those years were bad for all boat manufacturers due to the vinyl suppliers. You would be better to replace skins rather than repair and have it start again in a different area.

Thanks...a 205 w/ MC tower and 400 hours went for $18k here in less than 24 hours. The fever is strong

I'll check the forums; hoping there is something I can do short of reskinning to preserve that seat and foam for a few years before a reskin.

Nice looking boat. $15k seems to be a good price to me on that boat, looks to be in well kept condition and low hours. Open bow tow boats are always in demand.

All upholsterers I've talked to always say they wont repair seams

Same here. It usually points to rot.
