hi everyone,
just purchased my 'forever' boat last weekend out of Boise Idaho, from the son of the original owner. It's a 1979 Hallett 19' Bubbbledeck c/w 454ci 333hp Berkeley 12JC pump all original (unmolested). She was purchased @ ETCO Marine in Visalia CA in '79' and I have the original invoice. The son inherited the boat 2 years ago and confessed 'he's just not into it', even though growing up skiing behind it   :-\ ??
Well... I am so proud to be the 'next' owner!!
The pump was rebuilt in 2012 at Champion Marine, Canoga Park, CA (i have that invoice too). Now I have to 'shake her down' in the next few weeks, as the son has not got her wet since 2017.
This is like a 'barn find' to me and I feel blessed!
Here's a couple picture from the drive home @ Massacre Rocks State Park, ID.
