  • 1991 Prostar 190 hull repair

    hey guys and gals. I have just recently bought a 1991 prostar and only taken it out three times. and just yesterday was showing it off during thanksgiving dinner and found this wonderful six inch hole in the bottom. after further investigation it looks like there is some rotting to go along with the hole. Your are going to ask how could you not see this before you bought it? The damaged is right on the part that sits on the skid. So during inspection i never saw it. I will post pictures once I get the boat off the trailer. I feel the best way is to take it off the trailer then cut a hole in the floor board and fix it from the top down. Does anyone have any other ways to go about this? the attached pictures are just to show how good of condition it look like it is in.

    Sorry, I can't help you with repair suggestions. But, I will say that that has to be the nicest looking '91 190 that I have ever seen on here. And, I don't think I have ever seen one with the solid blue color scheme. Nice boat!

      I suggest taking boat off trailer... glass for inside and gel coat from outside, use real epoxy resin, such as

      To get boat off trailer is a bit tricky but do able...this thread should help with that... http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...t=14879&page=2 - here's an MC on styrofoam blocks.

        here are two pictures of the damage area. And thanks for the complements. That is a new wrap around the boat, along with new interior and a new engine. Never thought i would be repairing the bottom as well. Good part is I can fix it. It could be worse .

          ??? puncture - I wonder what from... prop shaft and strut okay? Looks like you can lift lift boat a few inches up and repair and not remove from trailer. Strange damage point. Looks like an external repair only... under floor and foam...might want to take it to a shop... Looks like the vessel was dragged onto something. Where is on the hull - more near transom, middle or bow? looks like it's been there for awhile...rust stains... how long is the damage inches wise..ouch..

            the damage is about six inches by 12 inches long. the bad part is it is right where the boat sits on the carpeted rails. I do agree it looks like it has been there awhile. I just wonder if it came from the end of the rail during loading? I don't know. I am just very nervous about getting it off of the trailer. I also believe i need to cut a hole in the floor to make sure i repair it from the top down. I will have a patch in the carpet but it want be that bad. I will keep you posted on how it goes.

              Sorry to see the hull but I bet it's a fairly easy fix and that is one beautiful ProStar!

                thanks again and I think it will be harder getting it on and off the trailing than the actual fixing part. I post more pictures once i get it off.

                  Just an idea, but is it possible to just jack that side up(plenty of support over jack), remove the bunk on that side. Would that give you enough room to work? It just depends whether it lines up with a support for the bunk or not?

                    Am I the only one that thinks this is a pretty nasty gouge?

                    Given how long its been there, location and different layers of repair necessary, it looks like a job for a professional.
                    Boat is going to have to be removed from the trailer to do a decent job. I would leave it to a shop that has insurance if something goes wrong.
                    This is the right time of year to get a deal. Wait a couple more weeks or into early Jan. They will be hungry, looking for work to stay busy and pay the bills.

                          I'm new here; so please bear with me.
                          I was under the impression that Mastercraft was all composit and no wooden stringers. Where would the rot come from? Also what areas have foam and can that get soaked other than holes in the hull? I just switched from Correct Craft for that very reason. Bought a 1998 Prostar 190 hoping to get as much enjoyment from this boat as well.
                          I think I'm going to like this site as soon as I learn how to use it.

                              Today was a good day but also rather stressful. We got it off the trailer. It came off a lot easier than I thought. Although I could not have done it without my brother in law. Jake was a true gift from God. I will post some pictures later tonight. All the bad parts have been cut out and the area is drying. We will start glassing next weekend. Thanks for all the comments.
