    Default old hallett daycruiser

    Here are a couple pics of my Dad's old Hallett....1972 23'6" hallett. Dad bought two of the hulls and finished them the same....one for him, one for his friend Chuck Wilson of Fresno. Chuck's was later painted kind of a golden yellow, but with the same orange stripe and trailer.

    I have never seen any other of these boats on the water (I dont think Nick made more than a handful of this specific hull). Would LOVE to find out who owns the other one now (maybe still Chuck???.....my Dad passed and I do not have his number.)

    Any information would be greatly appreciated. My dad sold his boat to a friend of mine about 10 years ago and I'm in the process of buying it back from him and plan to restore.

    Saw your post about the 72 Hallett, was curious how it performed in the water and if you ever did anything with it. I think I am looking at the same basic hull, but it is a V drive. Has an open bow with seating.

    My first attempt to contact you after seeing your post about buying back your dad's THE GREAT PUMPKIN. Makes me go back 45 or so years when your dad and I were good friends.

    Hi George! Yep, after wanting to get it back for years, I finally crossed paths with the guy dad sold the boat to in the early 90s and it is just days away from coming back from paint. Chris posted on this site back around the holidays. It is great to get back in touch with you both! Do you still have "super schock"? We will have to meet up when I get the boat done! Please PM me your contact info and I will call you!

    Default This makes me sad.

    Last year I bought one of these and tried hard to sell it. Finally I parted it out and crushed it. Within days of crushing it guys were calling from all over wanting the hull. I had kept in my driveway for months with no response, I tried to give it away. Damn this is crappy But I kept the pink slip. If you are interested I will look at the name or need a pink?

    REALLY appreciate the offer, but im ok on this currently. Don't beat yourself up, these are difficult boats to restore, but worth it to me because I grew up on this boat. Blogging the restoration on another post on this forum (72 Hallett...) but I remember your red one well. Was just too late to respond.

    Default Big projects ur right.

    I thought you had contacted me after I crushed it. Every time I send one to the grave I feel a little sad. But I think about how some family had loved it it was part of their dreams and fun for many years. When I try to sell them or give them away I often get cool stories if they river boats. I rebuilt the Buck Smith flattie and his daughter called about it. Might be glass and iron but they hold a lot of memories.
