    Default Boat Identification

    Looking at a project boat. The Hin shows that its a 1973, made by Cutlass Custom Boats or Coats manufacturing. After some research it looks like Coats started in 1994, so its a Cutlass Custom out of Hawaiian Gardens California. I do not know much about the boat aside from the fact its a 1973, was a 454 according to the owner, and has a JC Berkeley jet. Any Info would be great. Ive wanted a project for awhile and stumbled across this one.

    Thanks Tom. How did you like it? It's just one I'm look at for a project, something that will be a bit faster than the cruiser, and something I can tinker with and still have the cruiser for the family.

    So the boat was made in 1973 in California by Cutlass Custom Boats, who went out of business in 1975. Is anyone familiar with Cutlass Custom Boats?

    HI, my dad Don Anderson and a partner Bill Dungan started cuttless custom boats in Hawiian gardens i think in 1972 then moved the shop to Irwindale they were in buisness until 1975 when the gas embargo hit also known as the gas shotage an he was forced to close the doors. I was 13 or 14 years old then but we learned how to ski behind his boats, as far as i can remember the boat handled fine. My dad was an out board guy so thats what we ski behind. He also built a day cruiser to. i've been looking for one of his boats for a long time. where is this boat located if you don't mind me asking. Thank Brian Anderson
