I have a 1959 buehler turbo craft . I've read that 9 original experimental boats took on the Colorado River when the jet boat first came to be in the United states. The serial number on my boat under the seat is E -009. This number in no way resembles a normal serial number I've seen on any other buehler boat. Do I have one of the first 9 experimental jet boat made in the United states? And if so what is it worth?
Any information would be greatly appreciated

Wow! what a unique Jet Boat. Just in case you didn't know, or for those interested. Some great information, including brochures and manuels, can be found here. http://www.fiberglassics.com/library/Buehler_Turbocraft

I just realized this thread is a year old, but what the hell. These are great little film clips.

Next time you think the water's rough where you are, think of this.
