    Default Hawaiian Boats Brochure

    Couple people were interested in this brochure so I thought I'd post pictures of it(check out the killer hair and beard). I tried to get pictures to post in the order that they were in the brochure. I got the brochure from the previous owner of my 1978 Hawaiian Party Cruiser along with a whole file of receipts and documents from when it was purchased to present. I am the third owner.

    Pretty cool. Too bad you are not close to Dallas. I would come get it from you and get some good scans of it. Love seeing the old brochures.

    No need. I was just thinking out loud. I have access to a good flatbed scanner that will do 11 X 17 at one of my clients. Now if it was an Eliminator brochure form 1989 then we might have to work something out.

    Does anyone have any pictures or old brochures of a Hawaiian Party Cruiser with original red metal flake color scheme? I think that was original color of mine. Or any other Hawaiian literature? I would be interested in any history of Hawaiian boats. Are they still in business? Thanks

    Default Hawaiian Boats Questions

    Do a search for 'old rigger' here on the forums. He used to work for Hawaiian and is full of information concerning them. I've been away for a while so I'm not sure if he is still active on here, but he has provided plenty of information concerning the subject over the lifetime of this website, so definitely worth a search.

    Default Do you still have this brochure?

    I am buying one almost exactly like the 8 meter cruiser this weekend.

    More useless info...

    The 8 meter and it's big brother were originals, tooled-up in house.

    Streamliner, a re-worked Spectra 20. Everyone splashed the the Spectra.

    Polynesian, another original tooled-up in house although this one in the brochure has the 2nd generation dash in it.

    Moonraker was a splash of an Omega. The first production open bow LP hull.

    Molokai was a splash of Marty Hatchel's 19 Hornet, but we also did a Bubble as well as the original flat deck.

    The Lanai Mini Cruiser, the old Tahiti mini.

    The 6.1 mini, I don't remember but it looks like a cut down Streamliner.

    Oahu, a 18 Southwind splash. Everyone splashed this one too.

    Flasher was already covered.

    The Holiday, the old Tahiti tri. This was the only boat we built with a chopper gun. All others were hand laminated, at the peak we did 9 boats a day.

And I think one of my old Hollydale/Paramount buddies worked there for a while, Kent Santos.

    Oh yeah, of all the shops I worked at, most fun I had in the boat biz was at Hawaiian. It was a blast. Would love to figure out a way to go back there again.
    Old Rigger just left you a message on the Power Cat thread. Norm Slayton was our money man, partner, and #1 supplier of beer, booze, and babes. Kent as well as Jim Mobley, Frank Gross, Clay and Steve Trevett were all employees or as we refered to them " Yard Apes ". They all ended up involved in this Industry to some degree later in life. It was a Motley Crew to say the least. I talk with them every now and then trade stories back and forth some true, some out right lies, but most a mixture of both with a little booze mixed in to help the old memory bank.
    It was a great time to be in the business I too would love to find a way to go back to when it was just a Fricken blast. "I once thought I wanted to be FAMOUS but I settled for INFAMOUS."

    I forgot to mention Mobley. I still see him, his wife and mine were/are good friends from high school, Lakewood. I went to Paramount and am 3-5 years older than all those guys. Norms son Lance was a year younger than me, hell of a baseball player back then.

    Never heard the term "yard apes" but we used "yard lizards and bilge rats".

    Just talked to Kent yesterday.

    You can't think of Norm without a drink in his hand.

    I replied to your message on the PC thread. Our paths must have crossed at some point.

    The great thing about the shops back in the day were the guys working there. Like you, I have great memories of all the guys at each shop (for the most part). I mean what the hell, it was the 70s and from what I remember and am told....I had a blast. It all changed by the mid 80s, the whole thing had a different vibe, and that vibe was going up the nose's of quite a few shop owners. lol

    Half the guys had their teeth kicked in by the end of '79-80 and closed their doors. The ones left standing had to change the plan a little to survive. It was tough to give away much less sell a jet in 1980. I lucked out and landed at Rogers for 5 years, now there was a guy that liked to party, and then on to Advantage, Howard Warlock blah blah blah. My dad was even luckier than me and got the hell out of it after Hawaiian.
