    Default Need Help Identifying This Hull

    I have a friend that bought this boat several years ago. He says it is a 79 Beisemeyer. I have yet to see the boat in person and he only has these two pictures. He ran it up on the log accidentally when the motor cut out while turning. It's a bare hull on trailer in solid condition except for some scratches to the bottom from the log incident. The price is right and I'm just lookin for another fixer upper with a little more potential than my sidewinder. Does anybody know anything about this hull? Is it any good? Any input is appreciated!!

    ​Thanks Tom! So the performance potential is there and the hull is somewhat desirable? I just don't want to end up with another boat that nobody wants and wasn't made to go fast. Wish I could find more picks of and info on that exact hull.

    I think you answered your own question in the second sentence.

    You wanna be like everyone else, or do you want something different from what is out there? Better choice hulls are out there. everyone has a different flavor.

    Ben that hull has always been one of our favorites , would likely be very respectable with your LS program and I suspect much quicker than your Sidewider , Joshs small boat runs 80+ with a 408 cu Ford and handles very well, the other one I have is much less HP but is a great ride , Son may have more pics for you I'll check later when he comes in, maybe Google search Biesemeyer and Biesemeyer jet boat images , lots of info and history https://www.google.com/search?source...t+boats+images

    heres one link with a pic I found from an old PB post .. http://www.performanceboats.com/jet-...-question.html

    I had a boat that was identical except color when I was 16. It was registered as a GIGI boat. It was an 18' brown metal flake boat, The top deck is very distictual, especially the nose. The rear has a built in splash guard. Mine was a 1/4 stringer boat with subfloor. It was so heavy it did not have a front bulkhead and you could jump on the deck no problem. Must have weighed 1000 lbs bare at least. It has some significant hook in it from the factory, it rode extremely well in rough water. It came with a 455 olds and berkeley jc pump. Nothing special about it but it provided me with years or tinkering and enjoyment.

    Thanks for the responses! So the plot thickens. Apparently there is no title for the "beisemeyer". I dont want to deal with that. I did find this today fairly close to home. It is titled as a "hoboc" and the guy is calling it a "73 hobo jet boat". Im pretty sure it is a Hondo. It has a jacuzzi jet and a bunch of other parts thrown in the boat that will go with it. The boat needs some TLC but nothing too serious. 99% of these boats ive seen are vdrive. The questions is does this hull perform well with a jet? I dont think this guy knows what hes got and he said i could have it for a couple bills if I got it out of his yard. Im ready to drag it home after hearing what you guys in "the know" have to say

    Well not sure if i'm "in the know" But from the transom a Hondo it is. I do not think Hondo would have installed the gas tanks that far forward, but they can always be moved back. For 2 bills though

    Looks like an early Hondo flat deck , has the classic Hondo/Sanger/Brendella jet "pantera" bottom HIN (if available) will tell it , search here for Hondo/Cole Jet recent posts
