Vision Blew Over

Hello Randy,

I have a 1989 Hydrostream Vision Canadian edition, with a 90 hp V4 Evinrude, The Boat blew over in a bad storm and caused the bottom fin on the lower unit to bend. The bottom end, Motor and Transom all seem ok But I am just wondering if I should worry about this at all and if there are any problems with this how would I fix it ? Also I bought the boat late in the season and have not had it on the water, what should I expect for numbers? I was hoping at least high 40's low 50's MPH is this realistic?

Thanks for the great Info,
DAN

 

The speeds are realistic. You will have to apply heat to the skeg to bend it back. Be careful and go slowly, not trying to bend it back all at once.
