    Just returned from a great week at the lake with the family. It was a fun way to get away, enjoy the water, and stay distanced from others. Very happy the original Johnson 200 still performed flawlessly after 44 years - too bad I can't ski like I used to.

    Nice! I'm jealous. Hope your family can hold onto to that boat and uses it for many years to come. Phil

    That is a great ride! I’ve been away from Hydrodyners for a few months, but I had to comment on you boat and especially youR motor, Johnson 200! My Dyne was a 76 18’ as well and sported the same engine. I redid my boat and motor, but the motor gave me a pile of trouble from not having reverse to unbearable starting issues and fuel consumption, I was forced to change and put a Merc 250 on it. As much as I loved the look of my Johnson, I had to make a change. I also had a lot of fun saying that I had the biggest Johnson on the lake!

    My 77 is still going strong. My daughter will inherit the Dyne and the Jeep. She still skis very well.

    The Dyne lives on!!
