HydraStream's I think are the biggest death traps. Had one 6 years ago. The thing was insane. I personally almost killed myself in it. A good friend of mine that was good at driving those type of boats at high speeds got it up around 100mph.
Never again. I'll stick to the bigger/slower boats now.

I'll be laying up a hull this summer! It's a 17' cat and it has a center pod. Should be a lot of fun.

I took alot of notes. Litterally a walking sponge. Too bad they won't answer anymore questions.


It's a 17' cat. I'll be picking up the molds in the next couple of weeks. I really don't have much history on the hull as the seller received them as a judgement.
