    Looks like a 'Stream copy. The back corners aren't really visible in the pics. I can't see the downturns at the corners, otherwise it looks like the standard Ventura II bass boat copy. Lots of companiesndid it. Judging by the name they weren't trying to hide what they'd done...

    I would look that transom over good even pull that trim strip off the top and have a look see. Some wet sanding and polishing compund will make it look good Merc2.5.

    The back kinda looks like a champion. Most all of the bass boats copied and modified a hydrostream bottom. It could be a copy of a modified copy...

    Did a little research on BBC, looks like it came out of the Glasstream molds which I think are a copy of a Champion copy of a Hydrostream. So a splash of a splash of a splash. Made by Al Kirkland.

    Supposed to be good at speed, handle rough water ok, but doesn't turn well. If it's cheap I'd give it a go!
