    If it is a Tahiti I'm sure Old Rigger will know. You'll have to be patient though. He doesn't live on the board like some of us. He just checks in once in a while.

    I don't recognize it.

    Check to see if you can find a coast guard ID tag somewhere on it. Should be around the driver's seat/gunnel, or on the transom somewhere. Looks like this.

    Or find a hull ID number somewhere on the boat. They don't all have em, but if it does that'll help to identify it. It's usually stamped into the glass somewhere on the transom, or on a metal tag riveted to the boat (mine's got both for some reason). If it's been painted or re-gelcoated they may have shot over it.

    yeah i cant find a number on the transom or an id tag anywhere. the cf number or registered was in 03. where might the id tag be? would it be visible or do i have to crawl around. thanks again for some insight

    Regardless of what it is, Congrats on picking it up and best of all, the better half is out there with you cleaning it up. Trust me, if my wife of 31 years was not into the same stuff I was, I wouldnt have had the goodies I do.. Youre a lucky man!

    my grandfather has a rogers/wieman bushwacker that looks almost identical to that. does it have full length stringers?

    Beats me but I don't remember ever seeing a Tahiti like that before, doesn't mean it isn't one. Lot's of low production hulls at Tahiti back then, but never one like that...I think.

    For some reason I keep thinking early Sleek when I look a the profile pic. I dunno.


    By the way, there's no such thing as a Rogers/Weiman. It's either a Weiman sold by Ray Weiman with hulls built at Tahiti, or it's a Rogers built by Roger Weiman. Back when this boat in question was built the two of them weren't even speaking to one another. At any rate, I think you can take Weiman off the list of builders. No way it's a Rogers either.

    Looks like a early Sleek-Craft.

    thanks for the good info. my grandfather was the only and origional ownerof the boat and always called it a rogers weiman bushwacker. so, it must be a rogers, rough riding hull, gets alittle squirly at speed but fun! maybe he will leave it to me in his will

    just a wild guess...but i think that alot of tahitis were built at that time with 1/4 stringers or something... could be wrong as hell though...

    Lets see a pic. Roger never made a bushwhacker. His boats were called Cyclones back in the beginning. Maybe his dad did? Be curious to see what it is.
