Hello All

Post: # 16809Post Andrew Vision »

Hello all! My name is Andrew. I just bought my first hyrostream! I`m no stranger to boating as I started when I was 7 with a small fishing rig using a 62 5.5 Johnson. From there I built a few sea fleas and most recent at 21 I rebuilt a Glaston Carlson CV 16 (james bond). I remember watching a great many `cool`kids cruising close to shore with boats full of hot chicks! But the boats really got my attention. Not knowing what they where at the time, I could only recall the hooked nose and giant jacked up and trimmed engines. When I was in University I got a job at a marina pumping gas and eventually doing a few miner engine repairs. After paying for university and then buying and redoing my house I found my self with some extra cash for the first time in my life. With in this time period I was hydrostream obsessed looking at videos online of like extreme rigs like Ronnies viper and hundreds of vking and vector vids on you tube. I`ve also talked to many a rigging advisers about potential set ups. All of this plus the narrow width of my garage sent me on a chase of a VISION CANADIAN EDITION and today I found one! No fracture cracks...new floor and stringers were redone by Mr. Spaeth himself! , solid mounts new gauges and a gel coat that needs a lil tlc. It will be a light project in my garage and I hope to have it done for the summer.

I`m sure I will be asking loads of rigging questions to you pros. Glad to be here,

Andrew
