Picked this up a couple weeks ago, was gonna just throw a motor in and run it but after closer look (and falling thru the floor) decided nope. She’s gonna get a full rebuild. And it has to be up to snuff I don’t roll in junkers!

Hey Sean
My buddy has the same exact boat even the year just a different color. We also redid his interior, floors & transom (because water was sleeping through the exhaust tips) a few years back. This boat is one of the best riding, handling and all around jet boats I have ever been in. Iíve been in his boat plenty cause In the early days when my junk was breaking down every trip we would always jump on Mikeís Bahner. I think you and the family are gonna love this boat. Looking forward to the build. I know you it will be first class.

I own a 81 Bahner open bow and Iíve restored almost everything with the exception of the interior which I will be doing next year. I absolutely love this boat it rides very smooth and handles awesome you wonít be disappointed. It also sits nicely in the water not to high or not to low. Looking forward to seeing your pics

Thanks guys, i took Capogniís cruiser for a ride down in Blythe when we were there for brads party and I was impressed with the ride. Plus I like the lines and colors obviously this will take me a while to complete because I think it is a keeper and it will be done right.

Probably as far as I will get with the hull for awhile, need to start on rebuilding the motor, pump, and trailer.  Plan to replace the floor in the fall, definitely donít wanna do it in the Vegas summer heat.
