Sorry Kevin. I am as guilty as anyone for landing on FB. It's still very new to me. I searched high and low for about 18 months for the right Viper. In the end it came to me through a post someone saw on FB and clued me in. My first education on all things HydroStream came from this website. It has been an excellent resource and I apologize for being one of those guys that vanished like a fart in the wind.

Nice video, looks like a fun boat. I like the old Merc too... it looks like about a 1965 model year engine. I have a 1965 9.8hp merc in my garage :) nice motors!

Like others said, Facebook is easy for posting something and getting instant gratification. Now go back and try to find something from a month or two ago or search for something specific and you wont have a very successful time in your search. And the conversations can get out of hand and confusing fast with everyone just posting out of random. At least here there is a handy quote function so people understand who and what is going on.

Personally, I favor forums WAY over facebook just cause going back to something is so easy. Just bookmark the page and it will always be there.

Sadly though, Facebook has taken over and made instant posting of stuff way to convenient and along with it, people have forgotten about us here. Lucky for everyone though, I dont plan to go anywhere any time soon. Just wish traffic would pick back up here cause its no fun busting your but for something that has been forgotten about by many.

Oh well... With that said, Happy hump day! haha

Some of us don't know the rabbit story. What's the deal? That Ventura with a 2.4 must scare the M&Ms out of the rabbit.

Fairfield is just a couple towns away from me, cool to have a neighbor on here!

Never been on CT river in a boat, but not too far to go on trailer .
