    Arrow Identify my boat

    I was told it was a 76 eliminator bubble deck. In a previous thread i start someone brought up the fact that my boat looks different from other 76 eliminators. Where the other 76's gradualy slope down to the rear of the boat mine has a lip with a drop off with no gradual decline. Leads me to believe i dont have a eliminator ..

    Any help would be appreciated.. Thanks.

    ( the top pic is my boat, lower two are other 76's ive seen on this site. )

    You are right. All the Eliminator 18 Bubbledecks I have seen had the smooth transition to the transom.
    What is the Hull ID number on the HULL(not the paperwork)? Should be located a few inches to the right of the right transom eyelet. If it isn't there due to being painted over, you could always start sanding.............

    CFV 181151276 is the number on the rear of the hull. Idk how to check what it is? There a site or something?

    Read the "comments" section for the history of that MIC. Shows "WAS CONTINENTAL FGL,3162 E LA PALMA AV,ANAHEIM,CA; OOB 8/79. " Since the HIN shows it to be a 76, it looks like it was manufactured by "Continental Fiberglass" who went out of business in 79.

    Has anyone heard of continental? What does that mean about my title? It must be a fake since it says its a eliminator and has matching hull numbers..

    My buddy has a 21 Continental v-drive cruiser, dont know much about the company though.

    As to the rear of your boat my dad had a hawaiian with the same lip running around the rear.

    No One?

    My GoogleFu seems weak on this subject. I have only been able to find one other...





    There were no useful details about it however.

    Johny, I hope you are able to find the information you are looking for.

    There was a fellow named Don Engle who ran a boat buildiing company in Wichita, Ks during those years called Continental Foberglass. I don't think he ever built anything but V-Drive boats though.
