  • Binding Blaster Update/Rebuild

    The '09 Prostar I bought a couple weeks ago came with the binding blaster ($545 MSRP option) but the pump and nozzle were both inoperable and the tubing was nasty. I located all of the OEM parts and thought I would share. On a scale of 1-10 difficulty this would be a 2 if you wanted to add it.

    The tank is Mastercraft part 556217 $113 at MCPartsDepot. You could also use just about any plastic coolant recovery tank.

    The original model pump has been updated by Jabsco a couple times. The current model is Jabsco ParMax 1+ Model 42630-3512-3C which I found at Overtons on sale for $56.

    The nozzle is CEJN 232. $27 at MCSDirect.com

    To connect the nozzle to the tubing I used a 3/8" hose barb to 1/4 NPT swivel connector. $11 at MCSDirect.Com

    Tubing is about 6' of 3/8" ID vinyl tubing at your local hardware store, about $1 per foot.

    My boat came with a switch, but any toggle switch will work. At some point MC started prewiring everything so I'd be surprised if most boats from the 2000's and later didn't already have all the wiring pulled.

    Here it is installed and put together. Total about $213 plus shipping and and an hour of work if you have all your tools handy. Can't wait to try it out in a couple months!

    Good to know the part numbers. My 08 X14 has that option and it’s in working condition.
    If its not a competition ski boat, its always second best.

          You fill the tank with soap or binding lube and it pumps it through the nozzle so you can lube your bindings.

            You mean a lemon juice bottle with soap and water in it?

                We were talking about this over the weekend as a friend joined us for a ski and needed soap to get their binding on. We have newer ski's with bindings that don't need soap so have not used soap for many years and the binding blaster in the boat is actually redundant - I dont know if it even works so going to have a play this week as I will be in the ski locker pulling the rudder etc.
                Cheers

                  Does the switch end up being one of the ACC switches up front or is it in the locker by the pump?

                  Nice work tracking it all down

                    In fairness to the original poster (and based on maybe my previous comment of an easier way to lube a boot), I think that was the intent of the thread to say, "Here are the parts and all, if anyone wants to pursue." In that regard, good information and leg work. Thanks.

                    Double D would never have found all of that. He would / will eventually have used a squeeze bottle. :-)

                      On mine there's a switch by the pump.

                        Correct. I have OCD about things working, so when this didn't I decided to fix it. Squeeze bottle certainly cheaper and just as effective!

                          Naaa.. We use shaving cream anyway.. I'll pull out the “Binding Baster Soap Pump” to prove it works but it’s basically there as a back up. My switch to power it is located on the port side of the rear glove box. Not the perfect spot but it works and is duel action and powers the shower pump as well.
