  • Was this a factory option?

    Just a random question for someone that may know... On my 2004 Xstar (that I have owned less than a year FWIW) all of the running gear is chromed. I would default to stainless but it appears chromed to me and all of it seems to be original even the prop. I began thinking about it as I am looking to re-prop this season but I hate to lose the look of the chrome prop. Anyway, just for my curiosity I have searched some and cannot find if this is a factory option, or something the PO had done. Any info someone might have would be appreciated. Thanks.
    Useless, rambling wintertime thoughts. LOL

    Pics would help
    3 fins, strut, prop and rudder "chrome"?

      I do not have a photo specifically of those but I will see what I can find in the gallery. And yes, fins, strut, prop, rudder and exhaust tips are all the same finish. If it is stainless then they are polished to a mirror finish....

        Closest I could manage for now. Is it polished stainless and my brain is not working?

          35th anniversary 197 and 190 had polished running gear. no other models came from factory with it
          the prop I see looks to be a 14x18, if you're going to add additional ballast I'd look into a OJ 845 15x13

            Thanks! Interesting, I knew I didn't see polished very often but just wasn't sure if that was an option to get or an upgrade later. I do know the all of the pieces have mastercraft stamped into them. I will see if I can get info from the PO and see if he had them replaced at some point.
