    Default what boat to build????

    I have two tahiti jet boats, both are 18 ft. both appear to have the same hull underneath. one is a 1977 the other is a 74 the 77 HAS A REAISED DECK AND I WAS TOLD IT WAS A CHEETA BUT IT HAS A LOT OF STRESS CRACKING ALL OVER AND ON THE SIDES. I THINK ITS BECAUSE THE THICKNESS OF THE HULL IS THINNER. IT MESSURES THINNER THAN THE 74 MODEL. THE 74 MODEL HAS NO STRESS CRACKING AT ALL AND IS ABOUT 1/2 INCH LONGER AND NEEDS PAINT FOR SURE. SO I CANT MAKE UP MY MIND WICH ONE TO BUILD. THEY BOTH ARE JUST BARE HULLS AND NEED FULL LENTH STRINGERS PUT IN.

    Sell them both. You will be way ahead if you start out with a "Good" hull to build on. You can put all the "Makeup" you want to on a pig but in the end. It's still a pig! and tahitis are pigs. There are some nice hulls for sale at crazy prices.JMHO
