Another Minnesotan

Post: # 10054Post Sixmark »

Yep another person from the land of 10,000 play spots.

Am I a fan of HS? Yes Do I have a Stream? No, in the future it's a possibility, but as things are I have a fishing addiction and 2 kids to think about, so a Stream isn't the practical choice and my 16.5ft bow rider fills in admirably. I do plan on sharing some of my experiences and knowledge of the boating world, much of which will apply to the HS very nicely.

I'm not a stranger to Hydrostreams, Checkmates, or even homebuilt race skiffs for that matter. For those of you in the process of doing a restoration on your favorite toy, I will be putting up a step by step plan for doing the interior with pics and the whole works in the next couple of weeks, I was talking about it with Hippie last night and he thought it would help some of the guys save some serious cash as upholstery guys can tend to get spendy.
