  • 1996 Pro Star Restoroation - Another winter project

    Another winter project ,

    Nearly there with buying this boat ,
    Been stood in the corner of a field for 6 years not covered and the worst bit with the hull drain bug still installed, the first thing I did when I saw it was to remove the bug .
    I have been told that the boat was at one time was nearly full up with water inside , hence loads of internal water damage .
    Keen price , will post as this one moves on .

    Holy ****! Whoever did that to a boat needs a thumpin. Electrics will be a nightmare with the Motor let alone guages. Hull and tower look good. Gooood luck. Have fun

          95 or is that a 96..... a little wd40 on that alternator should take care of it...

          Good luck...can't wait to see the on going pics...the ski pylon show the waterline....

          Can't imagine someone having something that cost that much and not give a flyin'....you know what.

          ooo...just realized - waterline over tranny... that could be a real problem too.... dang... did you get from original owner?

                  I think I'd throw a new belt on it while I was in there!

                  I'd like to walk up to the person who let that boat go to waste and slap them on the forehead and say "No....No.....No!"

                    Right ah.... some of us work way to hard to get a great piece of equipment like this...it's sooo hard seeing someone let one go to waste...at least sell the the boat to someone who cares before it rots.

                      Was the predator motor around in 95-96? I was thinking it was a sportstar or skier (I have the predator in my '01 skier).

                      Either way, good luck with the rebuild!

                        Holy schitt!
                        Looks like a 95-97 PS, but yeah, thought the Predator was later model.
                        No matter anyway, you're buying a hull and a tower that needs to be gutted, completely.
                        Not sure what MC's go for over there, but that boat is worth the used price of the tower only.........not even that really.
                        That boat in the US is a $13-14k boat ...........spotless with a LT-1, ND tower and tandem trailer to boot.
                        I wouldn't touch it unless they were paying you at least $5k to haul it away, seriously.
                        Good luck with the "project."

                        Oh, at least it has closed cooling, so no salt water damage! hahaha

                          Hi all

                          It is a 96 age stamped hull .
                          The original owner disappeared about 6 years ago and left with some who knows nothing about boats ,hence why it has been not looked after .

                          Not sure about the options for the correct engine on this ,I have no reason to think it is not correct engine , hopefully some one can advise , hull id MBCUSAT9F96

                          The gearbox has been fully submerged in water however I have checked the oil and it looks good with no signs of water , same for the engine oil.

                          Will be a few weeks before I know if the deal has come off , well looking forward to this little project .


                          Will keep you all posted .

                            Another picture ,
                            I think the fuel tank has also been filled with water hence why the fuel has come out of the breather .

                              Wow. Can't wait to see her brought back to life. Should be a very time consuming project, but worth it in the end. Just a thought, but check around the edges of the floor for soft spots since there was so much water in there. The foam may have separated from the floor and may still be holding water.
