    Default Wreidt Custom Boats

    I am gonna go look at this boat tomorrow and was wondering if anyone had any info on Wreidt. Did they build good boats? I cant find anything on a bubble deck version of their boats.

    1976 Hondo Pantera- 18'- 455 BBO

    Hmm if they made a good race boat they probably made a good cruiser as well... I hope

    That looks like a wriedt maverick. Look at the bow gas tank, they were fiberglass, and leak. Good little cruisers.

    My buddy has one with the bow tank. My thought was to cut all of it out with leaving about 2" all the way around the bottom where it's glassed to the floor. Use that as a bracket to hold an aluminum tank.

    Default mine

    i have a 73 Wriedt Stinger. I like it alot. I was never told about the bad gas tanks, so after i replaced the rotten stringers and transom, carpet, and rebuilt my heads, i had the nose up in the air, putting some fuel in her for the maiden voyage. gas came pouring down my new carpet, to the new gel coat.... it sucked. i cut that crap out and put a new one up front.. now im considering 2 side tanks for more speed... or just build a new bbc for the Sanger 18'10 i have..lol

    I have a 18' wreidt executive not a bad boat at all, but its not one to get goin too fast either, lol the maverick is a differnt hull obviously, i tried and tried to search for info on wreidts , jerry is still in buisness and emailed me back , told me if i had questions to give him a call, i just didnt have any that seemed important enough to ask, fuel tanks do suck , floors easy enough to replace, i like mine to toy around in and shoots a hell of a roost.
