1991 Project PS 190

Saddly I am having to face the reality that I'm not using my boat anymore.

Five years ago, came kid #1 and summer boat usage went from daily to monthly. Then three years ago came kid #2 and boat usage stopped. Two years ago we moved away from the water and today I'm facing reality.

General condition is pretty average for the boat. I think there are about 1000 actual hours on the engine (see below for why I say "actual") - I have records, for each fill up but not in front of me, but I'm pretty sure it's around 1000 hours. The upholstery needs help, the gel coat is in ok condition (for the age).

The good: It's a 1991 Mastercraft PS 190 - it's awesome to ski behind. The last time I was using it regularly was the summer of 2010 and it had just been tuned up and ran great.

The bad: She's been stored in the water since I bought her ~2005 (we lived in a floating home and she was my ski boat as well as a general runabout). Since 2010 she's driven to the gas dock at the end of the summer 2011. At the end of 2011 I was having trouble with the solenoid so last summer (2012) I came down to get her running and realized there was gas leaking from the carburetor. I left and came back 3 weeks later and found that I'd left the ignition on - so the engine hours are crazy high. Finally I don't have a trailer.

At this point in my life I don't see having a chance to rebuild the carb and use the boat for many years. Now I'm also loosing the slip where I keep the boat. So it's time to find a new home for her.

The problem is I have no idea what (if anything) she's worth.

She's located in Lake Union, pretty much downtown Seattle, Washington.

She'd be a great boat for restoration, or someone with a little mechanical talent could have her back in the water for cheap.

Any thought / suggestions / interest?

Thanks, Tony

Post up some pictures and you'll get some feedback. I'd be interested but I'm 3000 miles away.

post pics, define specs on engine, transmission, any bimini or tower, heater, options such as perfect pass, etc.

It would have to be cheap, but I may have a neighbor that would be interested.

Pictures will have to wait until I can get down to the boat. Hopefully this weekend.

No perfect pass, bimini, heater, or tower.

Custom Subrella cover was purchased in April 2011.

While I definitely would not turn down an offer, what I was hoping for is a general feel for how much I should ask for the boat.

Thanks again, Tony

Really going to be hard to put a price on it without a marine survey. No way to tell exact hours on the boat, so later on that will be a problem with resale. Is there a trailer? You didn't mention it.

I'd be worried about blisters since it spent so much time sitting in the water. Any bottom paint?

Anywhere from $2K- $5K depending on the work it needs.

I'm still trying to get photos - will update when I have them.

Quick answers: No trailer, no bottom paint. Freshwater only.

While I was taking photos I looked at the log to get more accurate numbers.

I bought her in August 2006 with 841.3 hours on the engine.
Last time she was used - September 2010 with 959.0 hours.

She has been in the water since 2006.
