1976 Hawaiian Jet Boat!!
« on: March 20, 2007, 12:19:44 PM »
A friend of mine is selling his boat less pump and motor. There is nothing wrong with the boat he just bought a tunnel hull he had been looking for for a long time. Here is some pics let me know if any one is interested. $1500. aqlso wanted to add that the gel coat is original and the green pin stripes are gel coat not paint. And the interior only has one and a half seasons on it.
  • Boat #1: 1978 TX-19 Youngblood
  • Boat #2: 1994 24 foot Sundancer Pontoon
Taco'd "a person or people that show up with one lake lice and a family of 50 and cram 3 people at a time on it with no disregard to boating rules or ethics. Usualy crap in toilets and throw shit paper in trash cans. Hang out at the boat ramp like its a swimming hole. Have zero insurance on anything they own and dont give two shits less about your property."

The pics are like that for a reason! When you blow them up you get a real good look at the details of the boat!

As far as meeting in El Paso that's up to him , I doubt it though that's a long drive and a lot of gas.

That slide thingy is only on the bottom pic.   ;D

Yeah, that slide thingy moves all the pictures over.   ;D

The Hawaiin had a 454 Chevy and a berkeley pump in it. That boat gets A LOT of compliments when it goes out.   :o  The boat is currently in San Diego, probably getting the "built to the hilt" Berkeley pump taken out of it. It has a fairly new floor in it also.

That hull is a splash of an old Hornet. Marty Hatchel owned hornet, and before that was a rigger at Tahiti, back when my dad was a rigger. I worked with Marty for a short time in the early 90s at Howard. He passed away shorty after that. (from what I heard)
The dash in that boat is cool, the built in gauge bezels were way before their time and years before bezels became the hot thing. He told me a funny story about when he was tooling that deck up and looking for something different, the bezel idea came to him. He used old beer cans for the small ones. lol  I don't remember what was used for the tach mount.

Good looking boat.

I was also reading some of the other posts, cool site. I noticed where hotrod56 said Tahiti's weren't built with full stringers...as a gerneral rule that's true, but Tahiti was also a custom shop so to speak. If the customer wanted it, they could get it if they wanted to pay. I'm talking about old , Schuster owned Tahiti, not the later Tahiti who built the boat that was posted by someone that had full stringers. Lets not forget, it was Tahiti that started the v-bottom jet boat thing, there were other stabs at jet boats to be sure, but none in a v bottom and none cought on like little little Tahiti. And people raced the snot out of them too, we even had one competing in offshore racing, a 23 Toad, but it was a Tahiti jet, race by Jake Gilbreth of Gil marine fame.

All but a few of the very first 19s above had full length stringers. I can remember 3 models that were like that at Hawaiian, all other had the stubbys.  ;)

I saw one of those old 16's, pretty cool. The bottom front of the hull reminds me of the Rootin' Tootin' Raspbery's nose.   ;D

You ARE the "oldrigger" that worked at/with Rogers Custom Boats aren't you?   ;D  Man I love these Rogers boats. Why aren't they still made/available?
