Come on...it wouldn't be you if the tube and the wake board didn't have their own thread.

Congrats on the boat though. Pictures?

Anyone here able to run an MC number without losing their job? I want to get back my 14.5' AeroCraft outboard. When I last had it, I had a 75HP triple Evinrude, .030 over, bored carb barrels, hydraulic jack, power tilt/trim, hydraulic plane skids on both sides of the rear, absolute flat bottom boat. It was Maroon in color, and was a short shaft transom boat...

I sold it to a friend, who traded it in to now defunct Saginaw Powersports Center. I rebuilt the boat from top to bottom, added GPS, and flew up and down the rivers and lakes. The boat would do 68MPH flat out, fully trimmed, with the engine jack dropped all the way down.

Fun times, would like to relive them with that boat!

sorry grant, but a google search doesn't turn up much for a 14.5' Aerocraft that is capable of 68 mph with an old evinrude behind it....

Maybe he was using the same speedometer that the guys on craigslist used when they say their 1994 Seadoo SPX goes 70mph.

I had this boat 10 years ago, how you gonna prove it? AeroCraft boats were manufactured in St. Charles, MI, in the same factory that built the now defunct Thompson boats. The FIBERGLASS boat that I had was rated for a 40 HP outboard, but when it was built, 75 Horse motors were those giant V4 engines that would sink a 20 foot boat. I had an upright triple on it, and Garmin GPS units usually don't lie. I got nothing to prove here, I just wanted to know if someone could run down the registration number for me, to see if it was still in use. If I find the boat, I will show you the holes from where all the hydro stuff was hooked up. MC # was easy to remember, because it was so simple.


Allright, you guys got me. I could paddle it at 8 MPH flowing with the river, after it had rained, and the water levels were high.

The boat looked very similar to this one, only shorter by a foot.

My buddy's Kawi Ultra 250X is pretty close. It's within a mph or two compared to GPS readings.

The one on my Seadoo was a joke though.

OK, it's been narrowed down. The boat that I owned was the one on the top of the page in this brochure:

Same exact color, exact configuration, but mine had an accessory half top.

Mine is very close. Most tournament boats are.
