Recommended Posts

Wally sais he only made 5 of the bowriders so where are they now?????

One 1997 model is now under resto back in South Texas.

There is a 1998 model in Wiggins Ms.

I think Preston Carpenter has a bowrider, he goes by Polepile on Byuboyz.

Yep. He does. It's the 1998 I touched on. Nice looking boat and he has pics over on ByuBoyz.

Where is that blue one from? It has nicer front seats than Lil' Rider's 1997 model. Anyone know? That accounts for 3 & maybe 4 of them. Cool...

The pic of the blue one was taken at the factory. I have no idea where it went. Was just showing it existed. ;)

My Dad owns this one.. Its in Wisconsin. He is a member here (V21Triad) and check out his post.. http://www.stvowners.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=891 Post #7

My son just called and told me about your question.

Yep I have the Blue open bow Triad. It's number S/N 2005 made in 2000. I love it, just last spring I had Tradewinds Marine install a new 2005 stock 280 ss on the boat. I'm still playing with props after putting 8 inches of set back on it. It's starting to fly like I expected and I running the mid 90's now with a 30 pitch Masco. I'm sure if I get a few things done to the motor and 320 hp along with a 32 pitch that my three digit goal will be reached. I had attached a current picture.

Cheers

Roger

Thats great hopefully you can turn some big numbers. Which style prop Hoss is it?

Ron Hill version with big open blades, hopefully enought to get the bow up in the air a little more. I'm running 8 inch set back and that may not be enough but we'll see in a few weeks.

How about you?

Roger

Actually in the process of swapping mine over to a 15" mid. I had Hydrodynamics make me a 10 rapid jack so I could lose some weight off the back of the boat.
