    Default Barn Find 21 River Cruiser

    So my dad's retired fireman buddy calls me and says he needs some help selling a jet boat, I say sure, no prob. I go over to his house and he opens the garage and I see what appears to be a 21 Eliminator river cruiser. It's got a custom fit cover and a ton of boxes stacked on top of about 3 inches of dust. We help him move all the boxes off and pull it out and uncover it, and I about fell over. It's been parked in his garage since 1998 or so. He bought it as a custom order from Bob Leach in 1985 and used it a handful of times, a couple river trips, and two or three trips to Shasta. Polished it after the last trip (1998) and parked it covered in is garage and there it sat until today..... He had a custom cockpit cover made for towing and a few other custom details, but it's bone stock......

    Talk about a barn find, this thing is a damn time capsule........ looks like its off the showroom floor.... It's for sale less motor in the boats section if anybody is interested in a true one of a kind.... Figured some may appreciate it here.

    Sorry G Man, already sold......... Didn't last long, figured it wouldn't..... I know there are some really clean 80's classic boats out there, but I would put this thing up there against any of them........

    I'm sure the new owner will post pics
