      Nice looking boat...w/140hp it should scoot! I had a 17 with 115hp and it would do 47mph trimmed out just right.

        You got a very nice 17. I looked this one over and found it to be a nice well preserved boat. You’ll enjoy it a lot. You probably have already learned that it’s propped to pull 2-3 skiers out of the hole. Present prop tops out at 40mph.

                        Nice ride, Ride. I have the same boat, I am working on. Not as good looking as yours, not as well taken care of, but same, at least originally, colorwise. Check general Glasply for HIN but the G means Feb. Apparently the -7 is not known, meaning wise. Mine is a C, Oct., so technically an 80. From my little bit of reading I have done a bit overpowered, I think 115 was considered top, but what works, works. My knowledge is basesed on research so... Anyway congrats! BTW I won't trailer mine away from her original salt but if she make sit to Cascade Lake or Payette I'd love a ride if I am there. Family in Donnelly.
