1990 Mastercraft Prostar 190

I have always loved the Mastercraft boats but never found the right boat at the right time. I spent many hours behind my father in laws Glastron but now that my lat kid is almost out of college I felt it is time to buy a project. I have always enjoyed redoing cars and thought that a project boat would be a lot of fun. I found a 1990 Mastercraft Prostar 190 and the hull of the boat is good but faded and can be buffed. The engine has a cracked block and the interior is weathered. Items completed as of today are:

1. Interior is stripped and new side panels and rear seat has been constructed
2. Engine has been pulled and a 1996 351w roller motor has been purchased and has been delivered to engine builder.
3. Seat skins have been delivered to upholstery shop.
4. Graphics have been removed and recut.
5. Teak deck has been removed and has been stripped.

That rear seat bottom with storage is a great idea. Did it to my 88 and love having the extra space for dock lines and whatnot.
It'll be a fun project.

with all those 'Stangs you must know your way around a 351.

My only suggestion is to enlarge the openings of the side storage pockets to make them more user friendly.

Teak Deck

Project update, I was able to clean and strip the swim deck and re-coat it with linseed oil and mineral spirits. My motor will be done this week and we will crank it on a stand and make adjustments.

Nice looking board. The linseed oil is always a winner.

Nice looking project!

LOVE the Boss; 69-70 Mustangs are my favorite by far. Good friend of mine has an original, immaculate 69 Mach 1. We have quite a few classic Ford's in our family as well.

Engine is done

The engine builder called and my motor is done. I went with a 1996 roller block with fuel injection heads, Weiand intake, B303 Ford Motorsport cam and QTF carburetor. The engine sounds awesome.
