 Good luck man....

I have the same problem with my Sandollar. Vin# does nothing, and no coast gaurd info. If I google variations of a search for Sandollar, I only find references to past private adds that are now expired, no pics, no nothin  :41616-4:

The Title cleared just fine, so that was good. I know I am the 4rth owner. I keep meaning to ask the friend I bought it from, to ask his cousin (whom he bought it from) if he could possilby contact the original owner. That might enable me to track down the dealer who sold it new and ask some questions.
 
I did find Sandollar listed at sites that have a comprehensive list of boat builders. But that was ALL I got. You might try that...

The only useful info I got on Sandollar was from Steve at Panther jets (who is currently unavailable due to medical issues) but it was only in reference to build quality, not any detailed info on the company itself. So you may want to try something like that...

If nothing else, enjoy having something fairly rare.  :cheers:

Here is one of the lists I found sandollar on, but they are few... No rogers on this one, but keep looking.

Not an expert, but I do own 5 of them, 1 - 18' Cyclone, 2 - 18' Super Cyclones ans 2 - 19' Bonnevilles. If this the one that is listed for sale on PB, it's a 20' Bonneville Classic. Not a 21' VIP as someone stated. It looks like the one that was listed a couple of years ago in the San Diego C/L. I believe the interior was redone and up for sale in Temecula after that. Here's a brochure on it. Also have test reports from 1979 Power Boat Mag, and price list from 1986.
