|WETBACK -- A fast, safe, rough water Hydro. Thoroughly tested and raced, a sure trophy winner. On ideal water sponsons barely tap the water. On rough water and even bucking a good head wind, it really moves into its own. Highly maneuverable, can turn on a dime. High nontrip chines prevent digging in on a turn. As a 9'10" "B" Hydro, she will weigh 175 lbs. with all hardware less motor. For the "C" Hydro, make it just two inches longer from back of the sponsons to the transom. Plans are complete with step by step building instructions, full size rib drawings, bill of material, etc. Will take any motor from 7 to 30 hp.
This rugged little boat has won many races both in the U.S. and abroad due to its extreme rugged but light construction and the ability to stay out front in slight choppy water.
