The "MasterCraft" in flake red, would be perfection. Only reason to go black, would be that the red decal will not match the red flake..... It would even be a different hue, which would look funny IMO.

How about some thinking outside the box? A split personality.

Port is the top graphic, Starboard is the Bottom. Different boat depending on what side you are looking at it.

Hit: Ctrl + Prnt Scrn (or Fn + Prnt Scrn on some PCs)
Open Paint, paste it, crop it, save it & post it.

Of course if you have snag-it, it's even easier.

The only two engine options in the MC ProStar will be the 5.7 and the 6.2.

Jason - just curious on a couple of things...

1) What is the advantage of the dual bow points vs. the traditional single (performance, cosmetic, other)?

2) The windshield looks different the way it wraps around but then comes to a point mid-air, rather than tapering back down to the hull. Forgive my ignorance but is this the first year you have used that? Just curious if that too is cosmetic or if there is some sort of advantage to it. (I would assume that it would mean more wind for someone sitting behind it, or not?)

Thanks

I'm not Jason but I'll take a guess:

1) The "picklefork" (pickelspork as some call it) allows for more bow space on a shorter hull. Probably keeps it under 20' as a lot of lakes have 20' restrictions.

2) It's the BTS (barefoot training system) windshield that allows clearance for a pylon mounted boom and was first introduced on the 214 DD around 2008 - 2009 as a standard boom would not clear the windshield. It has become very popular as it is so convenient docking, etc. It's now standard on some models.

Here would be my two top choices. First is Mediterranean Blue w/ Viper Red stripe and the second is Canadian Blue Flake reversed w/ Protour Red Flake stripe.

It appears as though the windshield on the new PS is slightly different than the BTS windshield they've been putting on, at least through the '13 models. And when doing a mockup in build-a-boat, you still get the "original" BTS looking windshield on the 214v, x25, etc., not the one on the PS. This appears to be a unique windshield for the PS---looks like all the same functionality as John posted above, but it is different.
