    Hi i joined this forum because i have been looking for ages to find out who built my boat.

    it is registered as a starcraft,i have been in contact with starcraft and they say it is not one of there's.

    so if any one has any idea's it would be great.

    Oh and don't take into account the ugly sticky uppy thing (cabin) that was put on by the previous owner,
    but it does keep you dry.

    i will add some more detail although i don't think it will help much.

    length / 6.25 mtr
    power / 140 horsepower inboard mercruiser..

    not much more i can add,except i have been trying for about 12 months to work out the real manufacturer of this boat.
    not that it is real important it is rego'ed as a starcraft and is insured as a starcraft,but it aint a stacraft..

    I think Micheal Douglass has just took delivery of one of those. Cant see that aft deck too clear,--is there a helecopter on it.

    Whats it called "mean streaker"?

    Looks a LOT like a Steelking. Dont know how it would have ended up in AU. They were made in MO USA.

    If it goes like 5h1t of a shovel Kay9 maybe it motored there (few fuel stops on the way - closely followed by a large tanker?)
