    Default 1973 Eliminator

    Hey Greg,

    I bought this 1973 Eliminator from the original owner. He said he thinks you were the one who rigged it. Do you remember this one?

    WOW!!!!! It's very possible. All of that boat is original. Paul Stratton did the interior, Myself or Bob Babler rigged it and Lenord Effors did the wood grain and gel work. Cliff Lotz of Caliber 1 boats did all of the carpet and seating. Didn't build alot of those if you look around you will notice the Hallett had a very similar model. Jet boats were just starting to come on in the market and this boat was designed like a flatbotton to give it that look. Rough riding without the cavatation plates.

    Thank you! It's awesome to have that new information. We've taken it out once and it rode fairly smooth, but we think that the cavitation plates are adjusted too far. The nose really stays low and its probably dragging alot of water. It seems like its just a V-Drive hull that's been setup with a jet drive, judging by the big rocker in the bottom. Being as rare as it is, do you think it's valuable or just really neat? I've had a few jet boats but this is by far my favorite so far because I haven't seen another one. Thank you again! Very much appreciated.
