update - 4/15

Ok folks been a while- between family things and other projects- Boat is running very good. Finally picked a "new to me" ski - D3 X5. Timing and weather hasnt work to ski yet but its close!!! Still working out the ethanol gummies so another set of filters down. Runs good- Am having a challenge with the fuel pick up that is similar to another guy on the forum so got to find a fuel pick up "extender" which looks like an upside down funnel, cause when I get below half tank I am getting air in the pick up. (too shallow) Anyone got one then hollar, Pix attached. Happy Easter all on the forum.

Boat Cover

Just bought a cover from skiboatcovers.com. I am a happy camper. Quality first rate, quick turn around, quality service from Mike who called to make sure all was right and it arrived and looks great!!!!

Nice cover. In retrospect I wish I would have taken the option to go over my platform too.

I love it!!! Great job! I have a '97 205 that is not near as bad off as yours was, but it is ready for carpet, vinyl, a good buff, new decals, and a stereo upgrade, and a new tower if I went all out. I keep flip flopping in my mind between doing the resto vs a new/newer boat. The cost of the resto plus current value of boat goes a long way towards something new. On the other hand I love my 205 and feel like I'm cheating on it any time I entertain the idea of a new boat.

I don't know how I ever missed this thread. Wingnut, you are a rockstar! To see what that boat was to how it looks now is amazing. Great effort to keep another MC alive!

Great job!
I have a 98 205 that I have owned since new. Let me know if you ever need any pics or measurements etc.
Can't believe the transformation from what you started with to the finished product.

Havent updated for a while but have learned two things- darn it I should have had the tank professional stripped and cleaned cause the ethanol residue is killing me- Another set of filters down. Additionally alternator gave up the ghost- Guess this means when your ammeter is reading 11 and you think its just old and worn out. Not a good thing if you don't check its accuracy- new Alternator and - Magic. Skiiing up a storm and my knees are felling it.

Did the McMASTER-CARR Insulation box and couldn't be happier- Pix to follow. Summer is here!!
