    Well. I ended up finishing a steal on a 2001 Super Air Nautique that I would have been an idiot to pass up. I'll use it next summer then start my search for a Mastercraft again next winter. My budget will be much better then, anyways. Thanks for all the help.

    I have a very clean 1996 Prostar 205 listed in the classifieds if you are interested. PM me if you want to discuss.

You may have to spend just a few more bucks than you originally planned, but it will be worth it. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you out.
    I would be fine with a semi bad interior, because I could justify spending that money at the end of next boating season.

    You may be able to get them down a bit more but I do not think you would be able to get to 16k.

    Once Feb comes around and all the boat shows start rolling a lot of people would be willing to deal a bit more (at least that is my experience).

    i also looked at this boat locally. Pluses are that it is close, huge (way bigger in person than the pics), Perfect pass, and I feel like I could get it for <$15k. Downside is its not a Mastercraft, and not fuel injected.

    **must sell - price reduced** Awesome family boat - runs great - StarGAZER GPS controlled Perfect Pass Cruise Control keeps the perfect speed while

    Bringing this back up. I have some cash now (Approx $16,000) to spend. In no rush to pull any triggers. There is this that I have thought on, but its ~750 miles away from me and it's a 99, so no wrap around seating which is decently important to me. (http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/boa/4607422955.html). Anybody have any advice? Should I expect prices to drop closer to Christmas? The downside of waiting is that I won't be able to water test.

    If anybody wants to pass this around, it would be awesome. As soon as it sells, I will be looking for a 205/205V/early X-star/early X2/X1, 209/X9, or 214/X14.

    We have a '96 prostar 205 with a new dimensions tower. It is an awesome do it all boat. Great ski wake. Actually awesome wakeboard wake with 1500lb of weight. Its a mellow wave vs the steep rampier wave for a more advanced rider. Haven't surfed it much but it does get a surfable wave. Only thing it doesn't fit in your bill is being a V-Drive. Still can fit 8 comfortably. We have done 11 before but it gets tight. Wake is awesome tho haha

    not sure when they started, but my 02 has the in tank fuel pump. as you said, easy replacement with an auto parts store pump.

    Not specific to any model, but aside from general condition, upkeep and hours there are not many things to watch out for on the different model years cept for a couple.
    The vinyl in the early 2000s is known to self destruct much quicker than expected. I'd prefer a boat that had been re upholstered from this era rather than wait for the OE vinyl to crack.
