    Default Pioneer jet boat, but what model?

    Here is my '72 Pioneer that I have been working on for a while and I am almost finished with it. I am getting insurance for it, and my insurance guy knows it's a Pioneer, but he wants to know what model of Pioneer it is. When I got it it was a gutted hull with the original Olds motor sitting out of it. The pump came with it along with the cavitation plates. Everything else, I made up. It's 18 ft. long. The title just says "Pioneer". Thanks...

    Tom, I was waiting for you to chime in. I did an image search and it sure enough looks like (or is) a Sleekcraft. I guess I'll call it a Pioneer Rebel.

    Heres a few Pioneer pics from the JBP archives These Pioneers were built fro mid 70's to mid 80's here in Atascadero by the late Steve Hall , Steve boats had a similar look to Southwinds and other Jet of the mid seventies Pioneer only built 18/19 SK type boats and a really nice 20' Mini cruiser , in the eighties he dabbled in some Mini outboard boats after closing business. I believe Steve worked for Radon craft in Paso Robles , lots of friends owned and a few campaigned Pioneers in Jet boat drag racing back in the day
