    Congratulations. Great color scheme. Great price. Your little guy looks pumped. Mine wanted to sleep in our boat when it first came home. Enjoy the excitement.

      Cool boat. Good luck with the reno. On the pin stripe, is it even worth putting back on. Usually those were put on there to hide a sloppy gel coat line between the two different colors. If the line looks okay, I would just remove the old one and leave it alone, but that is just me. Good looking boat though.

          Great looking boat I wish my kids were that excited about ours. My only questions is that wind shield looks like an 89. I thought 90 + had the 3 piece wind shield not the 5 but I could be wrong. Some on here that knows more than me will chime in and comment.

              man, it's time to trade your kids in, if they don't get excited about a new boat

              I don't know much about the Prostar Barefoot 200's...... but but this member (since 2004) claims he picked up a 92 Prostar 200 Barefoot 200 and it's also got the 5 piece windshield.....

              the second to last post on this thread from Hanse1 and the last post in this thread from Carbide might shed some light on the subject

              I'm thinking MC used up all the spare parts from the PS190, much like Chevy did in 1988 on their trucks..... my 88 K5 Blazer was the old body style, but the 88 Trucks were the new body style.
              (88 suburban was old style too.)
              I think the full transition was completed in 1991, because 1992 Blazers & Subs looked like that era of trucks that started in 88.

              but, it's 6:00 am and my coffee's not done yet

                Welcome to the MC family. Nice buy on your PS200. I'm sure you and your family will enjoy it. My boys were 10 and 14 we we bought ours 18 months ago and they were quite excited about it.

                The PS200 from 89-91 and the BF200 92-96 used the five piece windshield and deck introduced on the '87 PS190. The 87-91 model PS200 used the same hull as introduced on the '87 PS190 with two tracking fins but the 87-88 models used a lengthened S&S deck and three piece square windshield.

                The BF200 had a different hull (V-Hull) and if I'm not mistaken without tracking fins.

                Here's my "88 as a comparison:

                    Welcome to the board!

                    Did you get a metal piece of square tubing that attached to the rear of the trailer and then allows the mtotor to rest on a piece of plastic at the other end shaped like a V? This allows trailering with the motor trimmed up and stabilized from moving. Be careful when moving the boat with the motor that low.

                    Michelin man has gotta go!


                    Boat looks to be in good shape. Some general cleanup and you should be good to go.

                    I like the access holes in the floor.

                    Where is the gas tank? I presume it is in the middle of the boat from the pylon back like on our BF200...forgot when they moved them from the front and back to the middle.

                      I bought one of the Swivl-Eze Lock-N-Tow outboard supports from Cabela's for about $60. Not only supports the motor but also keeps it from turning while trailering. Let it hang down when boat's in garage.

                      Here's a shot to of the Platform brackets too.

                        Great looking boat. I would love to have an OB MC one of these days. Incredible amount of floor space without a V-8 in the middle of the floor.

                        I would seriously consider purchasing a transom saver if you do any long distance trailering. The piece you have is great for local and short distance trips, but a transom saver will take the stain of the motor weight off the transom while going down the road.

                            The person I got the boat from left the transom saver up north and they are going to get it today and call when they get back. Michelin man is going gone. Here are some pics of the platform brackets.
