Thanks again for all your help. I'm sure I'll have more questions.
Go back and read my post....Sil-Glyde (NAPA) will make it new again.

Hey Waterlogged, can you post some details of that sweet cupholder that slips over the ski pylon? Looks simple enough, but what is the metal box-like portion in the middle? How do you keep it from twisting around?

I made the cup holder from a stick of teak wood (to match the swim platform) that I got from Teak World dot com. I used a tower clamp ($38) to mount the holder to the pylon and it is solid as a rock. It doesn't move a bit. Then two stainless inserts that will hold a large drink, koozy, etc. Credit to a member here whom posted the idea several years ago and I got the dimensions from him and made two holders from one stick of wood ($40 plus shipping). There is no room for error in cutting the wood for two holders.

The metal box looking gadget is an adjustable barefoot boom bracket used for mounting and adjusting the boom for different height skiers (quick pin inserts are the best). I have that secured with a bungee strap to keep it from rattling during operation.

One thing to consider is the room that is available for mounting the holder relative to the close proximity of the engine cover. It fits the 190 Prostar series easily. My friend has a 205 Prostar and it will not fit his due to the engine cover being bumped right up against the pylon.

Update: I got the interior cushions back few weeks ago and they look amazing. Iíve been busy with work so just slowly cleaning the floor. It took a long time, but wetting rags with mineral spirits and allowing it to soak then scraping and rubbing the old adhesive off was effective.

I got it pretty clean and shiny.






Next I filled the screw holes in the floor with marinetex.




Today I traced out the new carpet and cut the prices out with scissors.









Tomorrow I plan to get the carpet glued down.
