    Default Anybody recognize this little hydro?

    I have found this 96 (Im told) fiberglass hydroplane in a storage yard nearby and want to know more about it. So far my searching has yielded these facts:
    It was built by Hi Teck International (USCG designation HIQ) in Ft Collins CO between 1985
    & 1989. Big name for a little builder working in a motorcycle shop. The principals
    best I can tell were Tyler and Laura Bohlender. These things wound up everywhere-
    including here in NC and even in England. It seems they were suited for around 25 hp. The construction method seems to be a deck and hull bonded together- it appears to be RTM- resin transfer molding.

    Does anybody know any more about this thing?

    Ill post photos separately.

    Thanks Ron- you notice that I posted this on FB too.
    Is it possible that these scans of the ads here are available without
    the PhotoBucket watermarks?
    Looks like I’m going to end up with this thing
    if I can get the registration straightened out.
