    Re: Which model is this?

    It's always fun to come back and look around, see what others are building/collecting. I'm actually trying to get in touch with brushhippie. I want to do one more boat and its the model that he was...

    Re: Which model is this?

    Old thread I know, but that was called the Tahiti 19 LP. We used that bottom on at least 5 or 6 different models.

    Re: The Stories it Could Tell...

    That's pretty damn cool. I googled it and could only come up with paddle boat races there, you have to find some pics and post them up!

    Re: The Stories it Could Tell...

    It's an old Regatta, built in Downey. Wonder how it ended up over there? Found these pics on craigslist. Except for the deck being cut to hell on Chads find, it's all the same. :smile:

    Re: GMC Cobra Jet Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Those are almost the same years Hawaiian was around, I think we left Tahiti in June because I remember going to work full time at Hawaiian the day after i graduated high school and it all ended late...
  7. Re: 1976 Bell Ind Tahiti Super Cruiser: what is original design of cabin-engine cover

    Yeah, the little hand held horns are what I've used forever and I'm afraid I have to have a bimini too. Been battling skin cancer for a while, going back in today to have something else cut out and...
  8. Re: 1976 Bell Ind Tahiti Super Cruiser: what is original design of cabin-engine cover

    Personally, I hate windshields. I had one on my Spectra and couldn't stand the thing. I think it totally ruins the look of almost any boat, Torino's being the exception.

    I've never heard them...

    Re: What does this ski tow bolt up too?

    Why don't you just hold it up to the back of the engine? Regardless of BBC or SBC the 2 holes that bolt to the block will be the same, it's the 2 that bolt to the manifold that will be off. If its a...
  10. Re: 1976 Bell Ind Tahiti Super Cruiser: what is original design of cabin-engine cover

    Beats the hell out of me on the skiff windshield. I know that "skiff" is used for slang for abut a zillion different kinds of small boats but why it was used at Tahiti...I have no idea. The only name...
  11. Re: 1976 Bell Ind Tahiti Super Cruiser: what is original design of cabin-engine cover

    hahahahahahaha!

    We could do an entire thread under the title "boats, drugs and guns".
    Problem is no one would believe me or any of the other guys that were there.
  12. Re: 1976 Bell Ind Tahiti Super Cruiser: what is original design of cabin-engine cover

    I think your first guess is closer to the truth, numbers got messed up long after it was built. Could have been stolen too. That was huge back in the day. Had a guy at Hawaiian (Tahiti pt.II) that...
  13. Re: 1976 Bell Ind Tahiti Super Cruiser: what is original design of cabin-engine cover

    just a quick note as I'm heading out of town for a few days. I was only 13-4 when the first Boss was built, dad was a rigger at Tahiti. I was sweeping floors, cutting wood, sanding plugs and scooping...
  14. Re: 1976 Bell Ind Tahiti Super Cruiser: what is original design of cabin-engine cover

    Yes, that's the Boss cruiser but it has a few changes from the original which was a splash of the Spectra 20. Most notable is the bow has a little point on the deck, the original didn't. Small...

    Both super cruisers in the poster have the same interior as the one the ad tater posted.
  16. Re: 1976 Bell Ind Tahiti Super Cruiser: what is original design of cabin-engine cover

    There were many seating options. If you go to the home page and then to the brochure section (here... http://www.vintagejetboats.com/content.php?218-jet-boat-brochures ) you'll see a Tahiti file with...
  17. Re: 1976 Bell Ind Tahiti Super Cruiser: what is original design of cabin-engine cover

    Those are such good looking hulls. Tooled up after we left Tahiti for Hawaiian but later in the next decade when I was at Advantage we were building that one with minor changes to the deck. One of my...

    Re: 1978 Hawaiian 7 meter streamliner

    One of my favorite Hawaiians although I'd forgotten the name. This was back when Carter was going to change America over to the metric system and we had a few models with the word "Meter" in them....

    sleek freak, I was looking for pair too but no longer. There's a guy on ebay selling 1 (one) nicson manifold for the 394 Olds. I think it's 70 bucks. Not much good without the other one but it'll...

    Re: Anybody want to play name that Jacuzzi?

    I haven't got a clue, but I've always liked these pictures. (as good as reason to share them as any I guess) That's Candido Jacuzzi on the right, one of 7 brothers that started the biz, with a...

    Nice work Chad!
    Been there many, many times on winter projects. The ONLY way to do it correctly is to completely remove the rotted wood and start over. That rot repair stuff is just a band aid and...

    For Sale Re: Young Blood

    Good deal imho. It's not a Kona or a Tahiti, or a dozen other entry level boats, it's a Youngblood. Goes fast, goes straight.
  23. Re: LOOKING FOR ORIGINAL CONDITION ROGERS BONNEVILLE

    Huh? Roger was a jet guy and I've only seen one v-drive, a cruiser, he did back in the early 70s (just by coincidence I work on this boat in the 80s when I worked for Roger) and I'm sure that Howard...
