12ft Jetstreak in Motion @ 36 mph,  1968 photo

This action shot is of  me  flying along in the 12' Jetstreak I  once owned when I was 25 yrs old in 1968.  It shows how cool these boats ride on just the last couple of inches of the boat at speed.

It has a 1967 Merc 350 35 hp 2 cylinder motor & is going 36 mph but at 6000 rpm due to the 12 inch prop for water skiing.  I would have gone over 40 with a 13 or 14 inch prop.  The motor is redlined at 5400 rpm, so you can see I wasn't too worried about the Merc blowing up. 

Now i have a 14 inch pitch prop for the Mark 55 40 hp motor that is going on the new restored 12 footer.  I am looking for 40+ mph. - - Dave Roxin
