Shane Thomas...1977 Varmint with Mercury Inline 6 140.
I bought this boat in 1993 from a friend and it was in bad shape. What started out 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.
The motor is a Mercury inline 6 140 with a Bob's hydraulic jackplate. The trailer was 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!
