    Since it is prior to 93 it was probably Bronta out of TN.

    That is interesting. According to MIC Bonefish did not go into business until Wednesday, December 15, 1993.

    Smile jet boat

    Don't have any pictures yet, but as soon as i take some i'll post them. But the hull is in great shape, no cracks, floor is solid, needs paint[ white with race numbers on it], fresh 454, upolstery is good, but wrong color for me. Originally was a through the hull header, but has had plates installed, and wet headers on it now. no visible damage, never has been painted on,[ except the numbers] Berkley pump, 2002 single axle trailer.
