Just bought my first Hydrostream

Post by Drifter505 » Jan 25, 2016 7:35 pm

Hello and Thank you admin,

Just wanted to pop in and say hello, I recently purchased my first Hydrostream and second boat (sold my perfect starter boat to upgrade, although I skipped a lot of levels in between), it was my uncles then traded hands a couple of times and now it is mine.

Being a semi rookie at boating (not in an unsafe way it is more of a terminology rookie) and a complete rookie at Hydrostreams, aside from the one time I drove my boat years ago I will likely have 100 million questions.

I dont remember exact info on it but best recollection goes that it is a 1987 (?) v-king yt tunnel with a 175 evinrude.

It is in great shape minus a few mechanical "quirks" but in reading about these boats they usually seem great but have some quirks.

Anyhow better get back to browsing for answers to a few of my questions, Thank you and appreciate all that you all do for the forums.

Happy boating :D :boating:

The motor cowl says 200 on it but there is something about being a sport cowl ?? I cant remember if the motor is bigger or smaller than what the cowl says. it runs about 70 @ 5000 feet above sea level. After working out the chine walk and a few other things a bigger motor might be in the works depending on how it runs then.

As far as editing "My boat" I am unsure how to do that, if I figure it out I will PM you how. :up:
