88 Prostar 2nd Refurb

Just got the Prostar wrapped up for the 2nd time. I bought the boat in 2009 and did a mostly complete overhaul in 2011. I originally did the interior white but decided to go a different route over the last few months.

Here's a run down on the first overhaul:

Boat:
Paint - Dupont Imron industrial base/clear
Carpet
Gauges
Billet Steering Wheel
New Rub Rails
Fiberglass Swim Deck with Hydroturf
Bimini
New Dimension Tower
Perfect Pass
Depth Finder

Engine:
Water Pump
Fuel Pump (2013)
Plugs and Wires (2013)

Stereo:
Memphis Amps and Speakers
5 Channel on 2 10s and 4 Tower Speakers
4 Channel on 8 6x9s
3 Deka batteries (1 starting and 2 Stereo)
Clarion CD Player with 2 wired remotes
Interior LEDs

Trailer:
Paint - Dupont Imron Base/Clear
New Bunk Carpet
Removed lift bar and welded in a mount for a boat buddy
Extended guide poles
Tires

Interior:
Recovered in all White
Built Custom Rear Seat with Storage Underneath
Built Custom Passenger Seat - 1 pc with lift shocks
New Side Panels and Supports to hold all 8 6x9s
Replaced all foam

This boat gets used a lot! It was showing quite a bit of wear on the interior so over the last few months I've done the following:

New Teak Swim Deck
New Interior
New Side Panels
New Foam
New Bimini with Storage pockets
Trailer Lights
Carb rebuild
New Hoses
Belt
Blower Motor
Kicker Tower Speakers

I know it might not be everyone's cup of tea but I have this problem of not being able to leave stuff alone. I've enjoyed both builds and plan to get a couple more seasons out of it before upgrading.

Oh and thanks Peter (ThatsMrMastercraft) for taking care of the carb rebuild for me! It's running better than ever!

Looks good! You must really like working on boats... You do the interior yourself?

A.P. The boat looks awesome. What did you do with your old black Bimini? Would be interested in taking that off your hands.

Where are you located, and do you do others upholstery? Wouldn't mind getting a price. That solid white would like great in my boat!

I still have the bimini. I think I took it apart but I believe I still have everything to put it back together.
