What did you paint the stringers with or is that just a stain?

Roger pulled the mold back in the late 80's.
There's a few of these out there.

I talked to a guy that his son works for Advantage and he said they still had the mold. He is probably mistaking it for the 20.5 but it would be pretty cool if they still had it. How do these hulls handle are they similar to the 19 TR performance wise?

Cool boat. I think this is the only Advantage that I have seen with this hull. Any idea if Advantage still has the mold?

I have seen a guy selling them for $350 on the socaljetboats Facebook group. However, I am pretty sure that they are new and that's probably what the lightning go for too.

Looks like it to me, but I donít know this market.  It was 165,000 last March and has been dropping steadily.

It's kind of hard to say. Bullhead got beat up bad from the melt down in 2007 and it still hasn't recovered from the highs compared to California/Havasu. I bought a Townhouse on the water in 2011 and my nextdoor neighbor bought his in 2006. He paid a little more than 4 times more than I did. Now with the market being up my place has doubled in price but his is worth half of what he paid for it. If your interested in making an offer I would say offer $50,000 and negotiate from there.

Yes, I believe you are right. I read some posts about company split, name copyright issues and stuff like that. Bummer. Yup, I tend to lean towards previous owner mod. The more I look at the skulls they are different.  Thank you.

I was just going to post what Tim (previous owner of Southwind's grandson) told us but I found his post pretty easy. So here goes...

Funny story....

My grandpa complained to fleet wood for taking that name. they ended up in court over it. the end decision was that they both could use the southwind name as a type or model, but not a manufacturing name, so it was southwind by fleetwood..southwind by jemcraft. the jemcraft had to be changed from jeNcraft. my grandpa's last name was Jennings, so he called it southwind by jencraft until a jeweler already had that name trademarked. so off to court he went and to piss off the jeweler he said, hell i will call it jeMcraft to use the jeweler as a pun. and there you have it..southwind by JEMCRAFT. there are still some early models out there with the jencraft name on the titles, don't worry, they are still the same..

You can go up river from McIntyre a couple miles and there some cool sandbars. The water is pretty warm too perfect for a night float down river back to McIntyre.

Once you go past the 10 Freeway in my opinion it gets a little dicy with a couple trees sticking out of the water and very shallow areas. But the Sandbars are really nice. I have made it to the dam but the water level was pretty much knee high where I took this picture.

I have boated both above the 10 freeway and below the 10 freeway. I personally like Lost Lake for the North side of the Dam and McIntyre for the South side of the Dam. The problem is finding a place to stay. I stayed in a 5th wheel at Lost Lake and a mobile home at McIntyre and it was bitchen. If you call the local stores you may be able to get a hold of someone that will rent you a trailer or mobile. I have also stayed at the local flea bag hotels (they are ok if you're spending most of your time on the water). Also, staying in parker at the Blue Water Casino isn't that bad either, it's only a 30 minute drive to Lost Lake if you take Angnes Wilson Rd to cross the river from AZ to CA. I haven't been out that way for a while so others may have some other ideas for you.

Lost Lake is cool because they have the Saturday Night Drags (at least they use to).

They would also have a band on the big weekends. They have fuel at Lost Lake but you might want to call to make sure they have 91 Octane if that is what you run.

One of the launch ramps is in a cove and is protected so you don't have to launch into moving water.

Just down river there is a nice sandy beach.

There is also a nice cove just past the three bends in the river that everyone hangs out at (if the waters low you will have to walk your boat in).

There is also some nice beaches up river.

My best trip has been a day trip from McIntyre to Fishers. It's about a 65 / 70 mile trip each way though. I have always wanted to do a week trip from McIntyre to Fishers. Stay at McIntyre for a couple days then camp for 2 days and then stay in Fishers for 2 days then head back up to McIntyre. There are several boat-in only camping sites on the way to Fishers from McIntyre. We went on a week day which was a Monday since they only have gas at Walters Camp Thursday through Monday.

McIntyre also has a launch ramp which is also in a cove so you don't have to worry about the current. They also have fuel.


Thanks for that. Got out there last year but it was pretty blown out so only got on the water one day out of three.  Went from Pirate Cove down just past the gorge which was awesome.  Planning on another trip there later in the summer & want to explore more of the river so your info is really helpful!!

Pretty much from Needles past the Sand Bar there are no areas that I can think of that are not obvious. These are more obvious just passed the sand bar the river will split. Take the right side this is the main channel.

Once you are about to enter into Lake Havasu it can get tricky if you don't take the buoyed channel. To the right is the buoyed channel (wakeless). I have only taken the channel once and if the water is high it's a waste of time with a jet boat. If you don't want to take the channel then you need to do a bit of a zig left zag right through the other side of the Island.

Hey Gary

Here is some of the info that you wanted. This is from Davis Dam heading south to Lake Havasu.

These are the areas that you need to pay attention to going down river. The wash just after community park, with the floods that Bullhead had several years ago this wash area is filled with rocks and comes out about forty feet now (you want to stay right).

Big Bend (you want to start in the middle and then stay to the left),

just before the Arizona Veterans Memorial / Lazy Harry's (you want to stay to the middle and to the right),

Palo Verde Meadows (you want to stay to the left),

just past the AVI Bridge (you want to stay in the middle),

just past Willow Valley, Kingsley Street (you want to stay to the left and gradually cross over to the right before the rock bar)

and just before the Needles Bridge (you want to stay in the middle.

That pretty much sums up the areas to avoid heading down to Havasu. When the water is high you won't have to worry too much about these areas. In my opinion that zig sag that you have to make just after Willow Valley is the worst of it when making the trip from Laughlin to Havasu. There are a couple that are more obvious just before the Lake that I will see if I can find.
