Hi i've came accross a 1978 horizon holmes 18ft hydra-flight jet boat,( it is not the one with the funny looking bat wing thing) it has a gm 454 engine with a berkeley jet drive. Does anyone know anything about these boats....? Like production numbers, maybe how many were made, or what types of boats holmes made in costa mesa california

ITs nice to see  another  holmes horizon out there. I have a  Jetta model  Horizon. The  dash  I have on mine  is just  like yours. Can you  show  a picture  from the  back   of your  Horizon.
