    Default How many different owners has your boat had?

    Just asking because I'm curious. My boat is a '78 and not including me it's had 7-8 different owners. I bought the boat off a guy who bought it as an impulse buy and he wasn't really passionate about boats. He never bothered to do the research on its lineage because he just didn't care. Well I'm passionate about boats and I do care. Since day one I've been trying to dig up as much history I can on this boat. After about a year, I can say that I've pretty much done all that I can and that is the number that I have come up with. For almost 20 years, my Dad and I have been buying old cars and restoring them and we've always loked for 1-2 owner vehicles. This is the first time I've ever owned anything that's had so many prior owners. Oh well, hopefully my boats will never have to find a new home again.

    Bought mine from original owner. He gave me all the paperwork that came with it from when he bought it new. Not to say it didn't need a few things, but it's always nice to buy any vehicle from the the person that had it from day one. That way you get ALL the background & papers for it (at least what the previous owner will tell you about).

    I know of 3, Peanut Holder...RIP..had it painted in '03/04, then Robbie Barrett after him, then my wives Cousin Turkey had it a couple years before I got it last winter. Not sure of the history of it before Peanut got it, Maybe Gearhead or some of the local guys can chime in. I'd love to see some before pics of it.

    I bought mine from the original owners nephew. It was still in the uncles name so I guess technically I am the second owner.

    I'm the 3rd owner of mine. The original owner had it bought it new in 78, it's a 77 built hull. The 2nd owner had it a little over a year. I even found the original owners information, because the trailer was still in his name. It used to be run around Havasu and orange county, then several years ago he moved to Utah. I basically consider myself the 2nd owner.

    My boat has had a pretty interesting history. The guy I bought it from ran the boat once, destroyed the jet and parked the boat in a storage lot. Back in the late '90's another prior owner had a nitrous system hooked up to it and would race it around the Needles area. Hustler (member on this forum) claims that his father and brother also owned my boat at one time. The original owner ('78-'89) was kind enough to e-mail me a couple pics from when the boat was new. Turns out the trailer and interior were originally dark blue (presently both are white) The boat had OT Bassett headers (had logs and snails when I bought it) and it had a huge fiberglass scoop painted to match the gel on the hull. Based on those 2 pics I've decided to partially restore the boat back to it's former glory. I've already bought the Bassett headers and the boat goes next month to Havasu to have the transom holes filled. I've also decided to paint the trailer dark blue again. Digging up the history on this boat has been a pretty wild ride. Lots of investigative work which has lead to many surprises and me meeting some pretty nice people along the way.
