i have never heard of Electra....but....that is the same hull and boat as two other brands!!

Jolly Roger....

and

American....

same exact boats!

back when i was a teenager we used to terrorize lake washington in a 74 Jolly Roger(exact same boat as yours). it ran a 350 chevy and an OMC jet drive(OMC was a jacuzzi YJ). it did 60 mph all day. the boat would handle all the rough water you could through at it...

maybe research one of these other boats and see where and how Electra started or ended up with the mold........

the hull is a sidewinder clone, many companys copied them, the cobrajet had put a simular deck on theirs in 75. My brothers wriedt is quite simular as well

HIN# 'SPR' was SUPERIOR PLASTICS, WHITE CITY, OR. Out of business in May 1976. Same Superior Plastics that made Marlins.

Good info! Thanks SJ! It amazes me how many companies started out by either splashing a popular mold or bought one of about 15 popular ones over the years!
