    Beautiful boat! The guy may not have been the sharpest tool in the shed, but at least he kept it nice. That is unless you did a resto on it!

    I think that is an 18' Rebel. The 19' boat had a bubble deck. There were a couple other 18' models but I don't think they were made until the late 70's 80's

    Yes it is a Rebel. To bad it is not powered by a Cheby.

    Thats not a Rebel. Sleekcraft built an 18ft that was a rebel and a 19ft that didn't have a name. They look almost the same except for the cavitation plates. the length and the semi vee bottom on the 19. I bought a new 19 in 1973 . The price on a Rebel back then was $4,000 and the 19 was $4,500. The difference in price was because the dealer sold the 19 with a tandem trailer. The 19 is a good boat. The bare hull was reported to weigh 960lbs witch was on the heavy side but it was a very solid hull. 73 was the last year they built the 19. You will have fun with that boat.

    That is good information. I guess that would explain why something just didn't look quite right to me.

    Welcome new guy. You've opened Pandora's Box with this bunch. Between the obvious horn-dog tendencies and everybody's go faster mentality, you're in big trouble.

    My 74 Rebel is an 18'. The one brochure I have has the Kaui listed as a 19'. Below is a price sheet I have from 1980 listing all the boats/options for that model year. Both the Kaui and Rebel are in it as well as the 18' sportster. I know SleekCraft made at least one length change for a specific model. My 76 Ambassador is a 25'. At some point (I believe it was 76) they Ambassador grew to 26'. Interesting info non the less.

    Default More Info On 71 Sleek Craft

    Thanks for the feedback so far guys, I have a feeling this should get fun, Ill post sum before pics when I picked it up, I had a local boat shop here in Moreno Valley do some body work and paint, Install a bilge dump out the back, Glass in a second mount for Aux Batt. There was a hole in front where the eyelet is for the trailer. I rewired the trailer and new LED's, rattle can paint job for now. Org owner painted the original interior white and the current wheel, that will soon change also. I'm about to install a Bimini and a new steering wheel for this upcoming Memorial trip to Parker. Trying to get the boat dialed in now. First trip out to Lake Perris aka Lake Pepe for a test run the points stuck 10 minutes in. Upgraded that to HEI conversion and got it dialed in, next weekend, next trip, all was well besides the leaks around the pump on the inside(where it mounts to floor), I have to keep an eye or it fills pretty fast, original owner siliconed the shit of it and installed 2 bildges, But it started missing and father in law couldnt get the carb adjusted, long story short he rebuilt it last week and Im about to take it out again this mourning to Lake Pepe again for another tester run.

    * the ID plate on it says
    Sleek Craft Boats Santa Fe Springs,ca
    Serial Number 19-1008
    Persons at 150lbs = 6
    lbs for Person = 2000
    Max Hp 450

    * Sorry Outlaw lol
