    Default Early Hallett jet boat question...

    A friend of mine just picked this boat up, its a 19'6" Hallett. No HIN numbers to be found anywhere, trying to figure out the year, model etc. Anyone know this hull?

    Not sure what model it is called or what year exactly but we worked on a Hallet like that about a year or so ago. It originally came in for a place diverter, but when we realized the PD would be virtually inefective in reverse, we pitched the idea of adding a droop also. We decided on Places droop because of the extra drop. We also ended up adding one of Turbines 6" extentions.

    In the end the customer couldn't have been happier with the upgrades. The boat had always rode extremely wet, the changes free'd the boat up considerably and he picked up 8mph.


    some of the steering wasn't original






    Look at that smile

    It's a neat looking boat. I like the barrelback/tumble home at the transom. It's got some neat lines. Looks like you've already got your buddy a good starting point for performance/setup now too.



    Wow! That's a trippy looking deal there.

    Thanks Josh! So the extension, droop, diverter combo worked good? I suggested setting the pump back but he's not too keen on that idea. Do you recall what year that boat was?

    The Hallett 19 Vee-Bottom came out about 1965-1966. It was first introduced with a jet pump (quite a few were sold up at Lake Arrowhead to members of the Water Ski Club and used as tow boats in the races). A few years later, Hallett built some 19s with V-Drives.
