I have a friend with a 16ft Hydrostream with a blown 355ci motor 85+mph, scarry quick too!!!
In fact I think it's for sale, if anyone is interested I'll find out.

PorscheSpeed,
I have a 12' Cat with a 85hp outboard that is being re-rigged and painted now. I might sell it, I bought it as project like you and to go play. It is a true cat and was to be rigged with a 25hp, but now it has this 85hp on it. I know it use to run in the 45 mph range w/ the 25, w/ the 85 it should boot scoot...

Take care, Ben

PorscheSpeed,
I'll try and get you some pictures, the boat is at my shop in Bonita Springs and I'm not sure when I will be back there this week. It's still being prep for the paint shop and then the new interior goes in so it doesn't look like a lot right now. I'd probably sell it before all of that work took place if you want to finish the project.

I was fixing to say surely someone has a pic of an overpowered Hydrostream somewhere. When I was a kid in the 70s my dream boat was a Blue metal flake 18' Hydrostream Vector with a 235 Evinrude. Hey I was just a kid
