If anyone hears of a hydrodyne outboard similar to this one for sale, please let me know....I'm trying to find one to use at our lake house up North.:D I would prefer that it already be "restored" and have a newer engine on it.

I hope this doesn't violate any rules....dyne's aren't in production anymore so I would guess it is ok to post? If not, feel free to delete:(

Take a look at Dyna-Ski (http://www.dyna-ski.com/20OB.html) also. I know Twin Lakes Aquanuts are using one this year and have heard great things about them.

Erk,
What is so special about a Hydrodyne? Why don't you get a BF 200 for the lake house??

Barefoot 200 is possible.....hydrodyne's are just "cool" and I have always liked them. And the price is better than that of a BF 200.

Also, if anyone knows of a BF200 that is for sale, let me know. I've looked at the one on barefootcentral.com already, and the one in hampton bays NY. I really want a good hull, and can worry about the engine later.

That's the Rock Aqua Jays Verado Dyna-Ski. They have two more. One with three 225's and one with three 250's. they tell me the Verado's are really quiet. Can't hear the engines when footin'. Just the sounds of the water. They are huge engines.
How do they keep the front down? About 500 pounds of lead in the bow.
Try turning a triple rig around in the river with a 2-4-2-4-2-4-2 pyramid behind it. It's a rush being inthe boat.

I am with you guys, those 'Dynes are cool, whoever is making them now.
2 years ago I was looking for a boat and a friend of mine told me to check out a boat he saw on his way to work. He said it had 2 outboards. My first thought, he had no idea what kind of boat it was or anything, was a big lake fishing rig which I had no intrest in but I went to go look at it. Well I got there and it was an old Hydrodyne with 2 Mercury 150's on it. I was pretty hyped. It was an old boat and the motors were old too. They were the straight 6 "tower of power" Merc's of old but that in itself was cool. Two of those 6 foot tall Merc's stacked up on the back of this little ski boat. I was thinking this thing is mine. The guy wanted $3200 for it so I was thinking to myself, yes steering with the throttles is worth $3200. I went up to the door, nobody was home. No big deal. I can come back later. Well long story short, by the time I got a hold of the guy it was gone...
This boat was on Townline Road in Lannon WI if anyone knows who got it or has seen it around. The guy who was selling it also had a Supra (must have been the new boat) in the yard.

They are priced higher for the hulls. AND I want a 18 hull which is IDEAL for barefooting :)

My own opinion is that the 2stroke v. 4stroke is not a done deal yet. The Verados are heavy and expensive. Evinrude elected to create a more efficient 2stroke. Most people agree that 2strokes have more torque, the superchargers on the Verados are intended to narrow the gap. When pulling a huge pyramid off the dock, I would think the holeshot from zero is the target.

Dyne users are probably not all that concerned about fuel economy if a ski show team wears out $20k motors at regular intervals.

But I guess if you're going to throw 500hp or 750hp on the back of a 20 foot boat, it might be enough power whatever way you spin it (and prop it). I vote for new or used 2stroke power.

I don't want a 4-stroke, mainly because of how much more they weigh. Unless it was a really good deal :)

Erk, the Dynes are freaking sweet as a second boat. They're kitsch and when you see one on the lake, it is a cool thing. You give the wave the same way you do to other MC owners; you know they are down. They are just tough to find in decent shape because it seems like they were just workhorses to most folks. You only bought one if you were pulling for clubs or shows it seems. Anyway, its cool as hell and I think it would be amazing if you grabbed one.

When you foot behind a twin or triple rig what is the prop wash like? I'd wonder if it would be more difficult to maneaveur than a single engine ride.

Jeff, are you asking is the boat more difficult to manuver or is it more difficult to foot?

The wake is harder and much more turbulent from prop wash. Wake crossings are like footing on a wash board. Both have wide wakes and multiple propwash streams.

Twins and triples have a learning curve to drive. They are more delicate at high speed, tight turns often bring a prop out of the water ect. Learning how to drive them just takes time at the wheel.

JohnnyB, I'd deliver it to you free of charge... this weekend only. :D

The boat is nice but I am hesitant to call it restored. It is fixed up and looks good. To me, a resotored boat would be a 10 on anybody's scale. To me this boat is a 7 or 8.

I havent skied behind it myself. I got it this summer and started working on it right away. I had another boat that I was skiing with at the time. $5500 obo.

Man, that 1980 Mastercraft is Saweeeet! If I had the extra chang, I would love to pick that up. It would be nice just to own it for what it is, plus it would be cool to use it for late and early season skiing as you dont need to worry about the winterizing. How does that 150 hp Johnson push it along? does it have enough OOMPH to barefoot? or tow multiple skiers? forgive me if these are dumb questions, but I am unfamiliar with Johnson engines, and Mastercrafts with outboards. what year is the engine?

MCPS205
12-27-2006, 08:57 PM
The 150 pushes the boat pretty well. Right now it's propped pretty low so the engine revs out around 43mph trimmed out. I cant tell you how it skis becuase i havent been behind it nor pulled anyone. If I have it this summer/spring, I can tell you more. Hopefully it will sell before that though.

How old is the engine? I dont know much about outboards, but wasnt there some time in the mid 90's where they got a helluva lot more efficient/powerful?? is that engine before or after that time?

Erk,

Not sure if you're still looking. During my weekend adventures, I saw two dynes for sale.

1) There is one in Crivitz, WI just up the road from the ski hut for sale. It is the Twin Bridges ski team's twin rig. I did a search but they don't have a web site. If you called the Ski Hut, they can probably steer you right.

2) There is very nice looking red on white dyne for sale in St. Germain. I drove past it leaving the fireworks last night. In the crowded traffic, I didn't want to stop. My wife grabbed our film camera instead of the digital so you'll probably have to wait til Christmas for the picture I took. I believe it had a Yamaha OB on it but am not positive. It was a very nice looking boat. IIRC it was in front of the Citgo station.....if you drive down the main drag (Hwy 70?), you can't miss it!

erkoehler
07-03-2007, 12:27 AM
