    Default Heidenheimer Boats?

    Newby here, looking at a nice jet boat for sale with a good running BBC, Berkley 12JG pump new paint and interior. he wants $3500 for it, he showed me the title and it says it's a 1979 18ft Heidenheimer. I did a search on here, and googled it and nothing comes up, so has anyone heard of this brand of Boat?

    Thanks, Charlie

    Heidenheimer, TX is 7 mi south of Temple, or about 2 hours south of Dallas. I have a friend who was involved with them in the 70's. This is what he says. The company was started by a guy named Jim Saddler. It is basically a splash of a Southwind hull, with some modifications, and a Kona deck. My friend's brother was the shop foreman and took over the company, due to the owner's run in with the law. He moved it to Dalls where he built some race spec hulls. He operated it until '83, when he had to shut down due to the economy and gas prices. My friend is checking to see if his brother still has the molds.

    You had me going with south of Temple. We refered to that as East of Temple. We called Belton South of Temple. But since I looked it up on the map I remember where it is. I'll bet there are a few of those hiding in the area. Waco was always big on fast boats and drag boats.
    So many projects, so little time

    My friend's brother that used to build these is interested in it. Do you know if it is sold and if not, how can the seller be contacted or if there is a link to some photos.
