Prop riding on her hydro-conic bottom, Blue Streak takes Class “B” outboard motors for a merry spin in stock utility races. With a Mercury Hurricane motor, Blue Streak clocked 39 mph with one person aboard. With the same motor and a Quicksilver lower unit, she topped 46 mph. Johnson, Evinrude, Scott-Atwater, Martin, Champion and the other Class “B” (10 hp or motors of 20 cu. in piston displacement) motors are all adapted to this speedy runabout. On fast turns, upswept sides keep her plastered to the water surface.  Only two frames and a transom with plywood planking make Blue Streak easy to build and also easy on the money. Special designs have eliminated most of the difficult joinery, yet the stressed-skin plywood hull will take choppy water in stride and carry as many as three people.
