The No Wake Zone / Re: Spectra, Eliminator, WTF?
« on: March 25, 2017, 05:47:29 pm »
I've talked to this guy before the motor needs to be rebuilt. And lots of work on the hull. It's a great deal if you can do alot of it yourself

Im fine with doing work my self. Im looking for a project boat anyways. If the hull dosnt have rot or cracks or anything id be interested. I have a 454 i can build already also. I was just curious about the history here. It just caught my eye when i saw it tagged as an Eliminator. Where you able to get any more info out of him besides whats in the ad? Thanks

The No Wake Zone / Spectra, Eliminator, WTF?
« on: March 25, 2017, 05:35:44 pm »
Hey all. Found this boat on the list. It says 88 Eliminator 19 jet. Has eliminator HIN. It looks exactly like a Spectra 19. Did eliminator use the spectra mold. Whats the deal with this anyone know? Thinking about hitting the guy up. I know its rough but if i can get it cheap it would be a cool project. Especially if its the same hull as the spectra 19.

Ok. That's good to know. What about speed. I know if I do get this boat I plan on building a healthy 454 for it. Do they have any handling issues at higher speeds?

Is the 18 and 19 pretty similar or the bottoms pretty different?

The No Wake Zone / Spectra 18?
« on: March 17, 2017, 10:29:48 am »
Can someone school me a little bit on spectras. I'm looking at an 18 for sale and want to know how they ride. Are they well built boats. How do they handle decent power. What should I look for if I go and check it out. It seems pretty clean. All original for 3500 with a 455. Not bad I think. Any info on them would be much appreciated. Thanks

The No Wake Zone / Re: Spectra 19 jet vs Bahner 19.5 outboard
« on: March 16, 2017, 09:03:05 pm »
Ya I would prefer a jet. I've owned an outboard before and took it to blythe a few times so I'm not to worried about that. I'm more concerned about the ride. Especially in the rough time water by needles and the gorge. The guy with the spectra says sale pending though so well see how that goes. What do you guys think about the 18 Spectrasonics. Saw one earlier on offer up in pretty good shape. How do they ride. How do they do with decent power. Thanks

Whats the history on this boat? Never heard of Targa. Did they lay the boats up them selves or did Spectra and they just rigged it or something? I really like it. Is there anything done to the motor or mostly stock?

Hulls / Re: Does anyone have a idea what kind of hull this is
« on: March 16, 2017, 01:53:20 am »
Looks exactly like my 85 commander. mine had an outboard though. I had major stress problems with the hull with lead to a crack along a strake twice in the same spot. almost sank both times. Eventually stripped it and scrapped the hull. yours looks a lot cleaner then mine did, thats for sure ;D

The No Wake Zone / Spectra 19 jet vs Bahner 19.5 outboard
« on: March 16, 2017, 12:45:26 am »
Hey all, New to the site. Looking at buying a new river boat gonna be used pretty much from Laughlin all the way to Blythe. Right now I'm torn between 2 boats. One is an 83 targa(spectra) 19 with BBC and berk and the other is an 86 Bahner 19.5 with a mere 200. Both closed bow, both around the same price, both super clean and both claim 70 or more. my question is which one will ride better. Obviously the Bahner is going to be more fuel efficient and lighter and have more space inside but the spectra seems like it might be a little deeper and take the rougher stuff better. plus it has a little more cool factor i think. I like both just can't seem to decide. Like i said it will be used pretty much every where. most of the time from needles to the channel.
Thanks Ryan
