    been watching that boat myself, its a race only deal, very light, not for a lake boat! the trailer has no lites also.the boat was owned by 2 people, 1 of which has died, so who knows how that title looks. its a bitch to get that kinda stuff straightened out in okla. i've talked with the seller, sounded kinda sketchy.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    SDPM here on the boards made predator boats. PM mim and I am sure he can tell you about the boat and performance or handling.

    How old is that boat ? Must be a phone camera ?

    That just doesn't look like one of Neil's boat's. He built some nice ones.

    not for lakes! very thin and light weight boats, a few hard rollers on hubbard and you'd be swimming. yes, they're good boats, for racing

    Default predator boats

    the Predator boats that I am aware of came from Jim Johnson, Jet Boat Engineering, aka Firehawk Performance, out of Vian Okla. He has copied numerous boats from other manufacturers. He is rumored to have been one of the original Youngblood dealers/manufactureres many yr ago. He has turned out some very good stuff, and some questionable stuff. kinda got a bad rap for splashing, and sloppy rigging. glass and gel work was good tho.
    if the VIN is JBH, its one of his.

    I've never seen one of those boats work very well. I've seen two of them break in two. You could not get me in one of them that ran over 60 MPH.
    TOO DANGEROUS!
