    I found some threads, 12+ years ago when I pulled apart my Nautique for the purposes of improved skiing. Last August bought a Nautique 200 and then put the 1997 boat up for sale (cheap too) but 99% of people aren't looking for a project. So I decided to see what I could do with a resto-mod on it.

    Started with a bit of a concept then ended up solving puzzles, putting everything I know into it in terms of designs, style, materials, construction, mechanical, electrical etc. Turned out amazing, skis and drives beautifully. I went for great performance, increased interior space, comfortable seating, modern features/electronics, classic looks... Pix!


    What the stock boat looks like btw:
