who is the number one rogers specialist? knows the hulls inside and out, knows what makes them perform best. what kind of power and pump placement. all the things needed to take an ordinary backyard find and turn it into a real gem again on the water. thats the guy i am looking for. any one have a name to drop?

That Rogers was a monster.

If I were building one I would definatly consult B1 about any questions.
Great family owned buisiness.

Chris from B1 Racing (B1 Racing LLC. - Home - Santa Ana, CA) helped Ross and I build a couple of quick Rogers. Both ran well into the 9's in at the track. What type of hull is it?
those are very impressive pictures. i cannot remember the name of the hull. its 18' long and not the bonneville. i was told it was a 76 year but registration has a new name along the way. i cant find any numbers on the transom i have sanded down, or a tag inside either.

There's probably several people capable of building the boat you described. If you're looking to have someone else build it, Just remember the first rule of FAST-- How fast you want to go?? How much money you got!! A.K.A. Fast aint cheap and cheap aint fast. :happy:

Post a few pictures of your boat when you get the chance. I sold mine a few a years back to step into a quicker hull but I'll always love these boats. IMO they are the ultimate dual purpose boat, they can comfortably hold 4 people plus a cooler and still hall ass. Here are a few shots of the rigging that was fabricated at B1.

You may have a Cyclone. The HIN is on the transom (up and to the right of the jet) If your boat is a '76 then the HIN will end in 76. Post up a pic so we can see what you have. Pretty much everyone that I can think of has been named in above posts.

isnt that the truth. honestly i would build it in steps. i know in the end it costs more than a lump sum all up front, but along the way it build value to me and a relationship with the boat. i feel 85 in a lake boat would be a good goal. faster than most at my local pond, but as in everything there is always at least one better and one faster and one newer.

I'm thinking that's an old Weiman boat. Very late 60's or very early 70's. I don't know enough to know for sure. Shoule be interesting to see what others have to say about it.

does the pink say rogers? It could be a super cyclone but the bottom doesnt look right and I think the back doesnt have a lip on the super cyclone.

This would make sense as to why it doesnt have a HIN. My dads 70 rogers doesnt have a HIN.
the bottom doesnt look right tho.
this is a 68 weiman. early entry bottom.

It's also sitting on what appears to be a very old trailer as well. Wonder what the title for the trailer says as far as years go. I kinda doubt the trailer is '76 though.
