Barefoot 200 Dash Rebuild

Hey everyone,

New to being a Mastercraft owner, bought my first one last fall, Sept 2014.

All my switch panels on my dash are pretty much toast, the plastic is so brittle just looking at it makes it want to chip away.

I decided to take the whole dash out since this is the easiest way to get the right dimensions and turns out my dash is really really bad. Just started sourcing parts and getting drawings made for the panels.

My plan includes
-Get dash fixed and made stronger by a plastic welder
-add strength to dash with fibre glass
-fix how the dash is mounted (screws pulling the dash and nothing to support doesn't make sense)
-Buy push button switches
-Custom cut aluminum panels anodized black
-install the Yamaha command link all in one display
-refurbish the air-guides
-new depth gauge
-Change out seal kit for helm
-Get dash re wrapped and slap it back on!


Well time to get to work! Standby!

Did you swap out motors? Motor pics from your other thread show an older Yamaha 150. This thread the motor looks to be a newer model...at least the cowl looks newer...

Yes I started the summer with a 1995 pro v200 (150 cowling) then after spending more than what the motor is worth on engine problems I found a sweet deal on a 2007 Vmax. It was a bolt and go.

Skip the air guide speedo's and go with a GPS unit... much less hassle.
