It's amazing to me that your 98 205 is so different in little things than my 97 205. That fuel tank isn't even close to the shape or attachment points as mine. The design of the seat vinyl pattern is different too.

I didn't search it, but try Great Lakes Skipper. They have a ton of out of stock MasterCraft parts.

Update-10/10/13

Since last post have located and engine from a fellow team talk member, Have installed new steering clamp block, steering cable , steering tube, reinstalled new shaft bushings, new shaft, coupler, engine and transmission mounts. Carpet arrived today and thanks to Shawn at Corinthian for the speedy delivery. Headed to Viper tomorrow and looking forward dropping off Friday morning. Upon return its installing carpet, fuel tank and lines, blower hoses and hopefully taking delivery of engine and tranny (my other was condemned). Replacing the skibar mount and front tracking fin mount- Welds broken and plate bent ( I have no idea how some one could trash a boat this bad- Thanks to Lex at Rambo marine for rifling the shelves to find a replacement. Some pics attached.

205 Inner hull debond- fixes?

Ok folks Prepping for carpet and pulled up carpet in front storage areas under seats. Glad I did. The inner liner has become debonded from the hull in the forward section. 1) Anyone had this happen, 2) how'd you fix it, 3) I assuming it may have fed water into the hull- Yes or no? - Appreciate any input. Thanks Wingnut

Almost looks like they over foamed it during construction and popped the seam. I doubt much water got in there. That is an easy fix because you don't have to be especially neat. Feather the edges out lightly an inch on each side with a grinder and use about a two inch wide strip of thick biaxial cloth and epoxy resin. Grind and clean, cut the cloth to fit, mix resin, wet seam down, lay up the cloth, wet with more resin until it is wet through, let it dry. Done. Epoxy is more costly than fiberglass but in this case it doesn't take much and will stick much better and is far easier to work with as it has almost double the working time of fiberglass.
