    That looks like a Kona Makai. The Makai was Kona's version of a bubble deck. They often came with a fiberglass swimm step that that also covered the jet pump bowl and nozel.



    By the way if Your's does not have the swim step I think Outlaw,here on the boards, has the mold for them and can make You one.
    The 72,73 had full length stringers in it,but I think the 76's had shorty stringers?
    I am not an authority on the Kona's, but I have done alot of reasearch on the Kona boats ,when I was restoring Mine and saw alot of the Makai's.
    here is a couple pic's of hotkona's 76 Kona Makai.


    here You can see the swim step.





    Here is a couple of a 72 Kona Makai.





    Here is a couple of Konajet74's 74 Kona Makai durring resto.
