Looks like I am the first to post on this page. Hopefully I am not the only one with a Hydrasport!

I had one for a short while in the 1990's. I got a sponsored ride and sold the Hydrosport and my Ranger. I haven't seen a Hydrosport on LOZ in many years.
Ozark angler and proud of it!

Hydra Sports aren't being made any longer, are they?

They were always a regional builder and had some new boats in the 90's. I haven't seen one at any shows in years.

I have a 1990 dv 200 ff. I purchased it over the winter. I love the boat. Just wish my motor wasn't shot.

Well, hopefully you can get it back up and running before too long  ;)

A friend at work has a mid 90's model. Runs like a scolded cat! In fact, I fished a tournament out of it not too long ago.

I just picked up a 1995 Hydra Sports LS175 with an Evinrude 150 last month. Got it for $2700.  Needs carpet and a few other fix ups but nothing I can't handle. I've already fixed everything on the trailer like the bunks, jack, lights and winch. Outboard runs great.  Hull had some chips that I fixed with Marine Tex already. Now doing upgrades like new added new trolling motor batteries, onboard charger going on next week, then a Lowrance fishfinder that will work with the transducer still on the boat.  The Evinrude TM still works great also.

Sounds like a great deal for $2700!!  (y)

Sometimes being in the right place at the right time is a good thing  (yes)

Is the trailer solid, with no rot? Hard to tell for sure from the pic, but it looks like one of the models with the channel frame instead of the boxed from. I prefer the channel frames vs. the boxed frames because they tend to last a lot longer.

This is a channel frame and other than a little surface rust on a few spots it's in great shape.  The fender on the other side was damaged where it looks like someone ran into it and then took something and pry'd it all back out. So I took the tire off and using two large hammers I managed to float it out to where it's not too bad now, sprayed a little paint on and it's good for me. I put new carpeted bunks on it with all new galvanized hardware and fixed all the lights which are LED's

Good for you @rcecarbldr  (yes)

Would love to see photos of any upgrades or repairs you do to it in the future!

Looks good RC!  Shoot, throw a couple of transom retractable tie downs on it and let'er rip!

Btw, it appears there is something wrapped up on the rear trailer roller underneath the 'rude if you havent addressed that already.
