Very Kool Roost! Thanks Man! The more information thats available to people, can only improve awareness of these old hot rod boats we all love so much! BTW, What kind of boat do you float?

I have a bunch more on the hard drive I never posted, plus Guardian engine manuals, Berkley manuals, etc. When I get a chance I'll dust it off and see what's there.
My boats? I traded for a 21' Commander so the wife could have a smoother ride, stereo, etc. Oh, and the other is known as the Circus Boat. 1983 Advantage 18' open bow, BBF, Berk E, and a few tweaks to get 75 mph out of it.  :biggrin: It's been around a while......

Very Nice Looking Boat Sir!! Would love to see any additional "Vintage Boating Memorbilia"!! Little by little, with the continued support of all the members (such as yourself, I might add) I'm finding the information and diversity in "Vintage JetBoat" design, production, experimentation, is amazingling addictive! Perhaps its because I was fortunate enough to grow up around Shasta Lake & learn to ski at a very young age (slalom skiing at 8 years old) that keeps my interest in these old lake Hot Rods! Doesn't really matter I guess, I do, however, I want to "Thank all the members" here at "Vintage JetBoats.com" for your ideas, assistance, history, and passion that is posted on this site, everyday!

You're probably thinking of a a 1965 Stevens flatbottom  jet I "restored" a couple years ago. Damned fun project, and a LOT better manners than I thought it would have. Pics of that too if anyone's interested. I'm like a Japanese tourist when it comes to projects......
