NEW RULE !
No answers unless pics are posted.
Some people ask "Is _____ boat any good? "

I dont know.
Whats it look like.
Usually a picture will tell you if it's a dead give away, splash, or not.

In 1978 80% of the jet boats out there were splashes, or modified splashes of an original.

Questions you are going to be asked when YOU ask this question:
1. What are you going to use it for ?
2. What motor and drive is in it ?
3. Are you planning on keeping that motor and drive ?
4. How much money are planing on spending on this boat ?
5. What makes a boat "good"  ??? BTW

The boat is a 78 phantom. It is setup to run a ford 460. My plans are to have a play toy. Im building the family ride and looking to make something loud and look good no sking allowed. Ive never heard of them except for fishing aluminum boats and I didnt find anyone here with one. Heres a pic

Being able to sell it to your best freind when you find something "better", or will he have to sell it on E-Prey out of state and make sure the bill of sale says "as is".... :sly:

You quit drinking buddy? ;D

BTW, not a phucking clue what a Phantom Jetboat is......IMHO all boat manufactures built some real pieces of crap, there is nothing in a name but a name...

Only the one off custom built boats you see selling for tens of thousands of dollars are what I would call "Special" even then Buyer Beware. :sly:

We had (bought and sold ) a Phantom a 6/8/10 years back or so , was a pretty decent boat (very "strange LSD paint" and in fact I built a Olds motor for it and used it part  of one season as my "dealer driver" Boat was very "Tahiti like" as I recall verifying Omars thoughts that it was likely a splash off something Good luck with the project ! Tom

heres the coast guard link and soon to come pictures (wife says she knows where they are :) )

Your gonna have to gut the boat to look for rotten wood or any tell tale sign of needed repair.
Especially right around the motor mount feet.

BTW , there is no such thing as a "good boat"  :thumbdown:
They are all headaches and money pits !

it does kind of look like tahiti. I will retract my statement of a good boat. Sorry. I completely agree they are all money pits, but its better than just handing my wife my paycheck and going shopping. before I knew it I had almost $5000 in my 455 but it sounds good and cannot be taken back to Walmart. here is a pic of the rear
