      I assume there is foam in this boat and its probably soaked like a spongeand would need to be replaced. anyone have any idea if its not to bad to get at or a real PITA?

          It's your winter project but I have got to believe there are better boats out here for slightly less money to get them sea worthy.

              Ok...been going through every thread I can find in the for sale section on BF200 and powerstar 200's. I think I found a match. Looks like its a 92 powerstar. comparing it to this http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=64964

                So you think 1500 US for hull and trailer is too steep?

                        Fixed for me! I really like the reverse gel colors of that boat.

                          still debating if I should pull the trigger and buy it...I wish I knew more about what to expect under the floor. I guess only one way to find out..buy it and cross my fingers? lol

                            I go back to this. You could probably find a less risky project. Unless this has certain sentimental value, take your money elsewhere.

                              no sentimental value...Just trying to get a Non wood constructed outboard Mastercraft for the least amount of money possible (labour is "free" in my eyes since I would rather work on a boat then work at a job)
                              I figure based on my list of materials, gauges, outboard, etc I am looking at 6k to 7k cad all in (so $4500 to $5500 for you Americans).
                              IS it possible to find BF200s or PS200s with trailer in this range. Seems like everything is always 8k USD and up

                                I have sort of steered this thread a bit from the intent. Let me try and get myself back on track. I am now assuming this is a 1992 prostar 200 since..well..thats what the plate sais. My guess is that this model of prostar is almost the same as the 93 except for the gauge cluster is a bit different and minus the hydraulic steering. Hull wise it looks the same as any 93+ barefoot 200 hull.
                                Here is the information that I really was hoping to find out. if anyone knows, please chime in I would be greatly appreciated.

                                1- I believe all boats have foam in them as in order to be certified they have to. This foam will no doubt be waterlogged. Has anyone snooped around these boats enough to know if getting at the foam is possible without separating the lower hull from the upper deck.

                                2- Any confirmation of anyone's experience that there is no wood in the transom?

                                3- I see that its rated for 200HP, but see many people with 225 and 250s..even seen one with a 300. Has anyone seen transom cracking from too much HP on these boats? Does the weight between a 200 and 300 vary enough to cause problems with the wake table?
