"Great and very fast boat. Had a 150 Evinrude and ran 70 mph. Just set a 200 Merc on it, looking for high 70's or 70. Sprayed interior floor, decks and lids with gator guard. In the process of replacing everything. New Motorguide, Lowrance electronics, aerator system, just everything in the boat. Plan on completing early 2012. It's White w/Grey Blue flake.

00 200 Evinrude
Lowrance LMS 522ci GPS, MinnKota 101# TM. 
75 mph (speedo). "This is my first Tidecraft bass boat and I'm very pleased with the boat. The holeshot is unbelievable and really handles well in the roughest of water (Lake Michigan). When trimmed up in calm water this boat rides like glass. I would have to rate this boat a solid 9 for looks, dependability. As for being a '99 this boat still looks like a newer boat. I only widh they still made them like this. Can anyone tell me where to get two windshields for this boat, it's one of the only things lacking."

Humminbird fish finder. "Bought my boat used, it came with a foot operated TM, black in coklor but no numbers or markings on it anywhere. The plastic pinion gear broke inside so I can't steer it.

  just about anywhere and light enuff to tow with a small truck."  
86 Tidecraft Sunfire Eagle electronics, Evinrude TM. "I bought this boat via eBay  Nikoblade - MN
86 50 Evinrude from a dealer in Iowa. It ended up having a bad lower unit I  
  was unaware of but got to use it three times. I loved it until  
  the lower unit went. Now getting it fixed and back in the water  
  this year. I really like the size of this boat and it has all the   
  features of the big boys. I changed the seats. That's the only  
  improvement I've made. It's Gold/Brown and something out of  
  "That 70's Show" BUT nice. This is the only Sunfire I see   
  listed here so any feedback on this model would be   
  appreciated."

  with Wiseco forged slugs/re-timed porting on a 200 hp block  
  (3 1/2 bore), 150 carbs rejetted with Boyesen reeds,   
  hi compression heads. I surprise a lot of high $$$ rigs at the   
  lake. Oh what fun, almost better than fishing."

97 150 Evinrude Propshaft is 2" below the pad. 66 mph @ 5400 rpm (gps).  
  "This is my first BB and love the way the prop works with   
  this boat. It flies out of the hole and when you nail the gas at  
  50 mph it pulls to 65 mph+. Nice thing is that most 150's and   
  175' can't keep up with this boat. I just wish there were still   
  making these boats, I would buy a new one in a heartbeat!"

  Tidecraft Spitfire with a 1985 85hp Suzuki. It ran about 55   
  mph. I just sold it and upgraded to this one which is 10 years  
  newer. I love these little boats. They run like a bullet and can  
  get into anywhere. You don't have to have a diesel to pull it.  
  They are great. My current setup cost me $2500 in perfect  
  condition. My old one was bad off and I bought it for $900.  
  and sold it for $1900. You can find great deals on these."
