Guessing your screen name indicates the year you were born? If so, congrats! Damn nice ski boat for a 20 year old! (I assume you will eventually buy a '93 Prostar?) I'm still waiting to get my '62 Corvette! Haha!

I was actually born in 88.. I made the screen name for my first time post trying to get some help on my buddy's 93 prostar 190 hot start issue (later on diagnosed bad battery cables)

I really need to change it to 89, who would I talk to about that?

Thanks for the kind words you all.. I'm going to spend the day cleaning on the boat and trying to figure out why the speedo's aren't working and my brake lights on the trailer aren't working..

I just hope this ole v6 ford f150 will pull this thing.. LOL

Thanks for all the kind words.. I bookmarked skidim.com right now

Today I had the water hooked up to the boat and let it idle a little bit in the driveway.. I noticed a very slow drop from one of the hoses on front of the engine at the top.. I loosened the hose and slid it up a little further and re-tightened the hose and problem fixed..

I shut the water off and noticed water slowly dripping from my raw water pump (i believe this is what it's called, please correct me if i am wrong)

There is one of the brass screws missing off of the front of it, but it's not dripping from the from side.. it appears to be the backside.

I searched it up and seen a few posts where it was normal for this to drip as long as it's not streaming.. then i seen someone say it's not normal.. also it was doing it while i had the water off and the engine shut off.

Can anybody shed some light for me? TIA

Also I am going to change the oil in it this week... What weight do you all recommend? I really like Valvoline conventional

The owner's manual calls for straight 30W oil, and that would work fine. They specified a straight weight oil back then because the engine is working hard, and straight weight oils don't break down like the multi-viscosity oils of the day. However, oils have improved over the past 24 years. I use Rotella 15W-40. It works great, and is probably less expensive than 30W.
