my 2001 prostar 205v

my brother and I bought this boat almost 3 years ago with 330hrs its now got about 560 and is still running strong! allatoona is our lake of choice and you can find us wakeboarding or partying all summer long!

no pp or built in ballast which I prefer because pp sucks with a lot of weight and factory hard tanks take up way to much room.

currently our set up for weight is 200lbs of lead in the v drive compartments with 350lbs sacs on top 250lbs bag in the ski locker 250lbs bag in the floor and about 750lbs in a triangle bow sac up front and typically 4-5 people. total ballast weight around 2350lbs

last spring I did a full tear down of the stereo system and added two JL 12w6v3's in sealed enclosures. one under the dash and the other down firing behind a custom built amp wall under the passengers hatch.

added kicker tower speakers new interior speakers all running off of there own amp. added a second battery a perko switch and wired "0" gauge power and ground blocks for the amps. head unit and the remote for the amps are wired thru relays to ensure no distortion or feedback from the boat.

the lake and boating has been something my life has revolved around since I was born and couldn't be happier to have my first boat be a mastercraft.

Interesting take on the PP. had a 2000 205V with less weight and it was impossible to keep at a constant speed.

sweet stereo install!! love that amp rack.

My question is which backsplash did you choose?

Personally I like the glass tile....

+1 glass tile.

-1 for PP hater



Which PP do you have? I've got the wakeboard pro in mine, and have no problems with PP and a lot of weight. Maybe try switching from MPH mode to RPM mode. Seems to work well for me. This was with about 2000lbs and 9 people in my boat.

Great pics - that's a crap load more weight than I've tried - would love to see pics of the wake with it loaded like that!

(of course for me at least I fear it is almost pointless this season as none of my normal lakes near me will likely have enough water to safely boat this season)
