Shane Thomas...1977 Varmint with Mercury Inline 6 140.

 

Thomas6.jpg (64243 bytes)I bought this boat in 1993 from a friend and it was in bad shape.  What started outThomas7.jpg (81900 bytes) as a little fixing up turned out to be a complete restoration.  The first thing was a paint job: PPG Concept urethane in canary yellow.  Then, new carpet, white Teleflex gauges, hot foot, billet Dino steering wheel, custom windshield, and custom seats.

Thomas5.jpg (63103 bytes)The motor is a Mercury inline 6 140 with a Bob's hydraulic jackplate.  The trailer wasThomas1.jpg (62084 bytes) sandblasted and painted & pinstriped to match the boat.  The original emblems were painted and used on the trailer while new decals were made for the hull.  A new Merc V6 will be added soon.

The boat runs in the mid 60's.  It may not be the fastest HydroStream, but it sure looks good!
