Its with a very heavy heart that we he have be informed that last night, just before midnight, our friend, the legend, and pioneer of the greatest boat designs of all time, Howard Pipkorn has passed away at the age of 76.

Thank you, Mr. Howard Pipkorn, for designing and bringing to market all of these awesome boats. Your work has had such an impact on so many of our lives, and you have brought so many of us together in this Hydrostream community/family. Thank you for everything Howard. And prayers to his wife Susan and the rest of his family and friends. Until we meet again!

Maybe we'll meet again, on the river."There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells." Psalm 46:4. Wouldn't it be cool to run that river. Probably a Hydrostream on it right now.
