Place Diverter's Corporate Jet

We are restoring a Rogers 18 Bonneville, we are calling it project; "Going Back to our Roots". We miss the classic old school jet boats. Hell this things going to be a sports car on water compared to the 22 deck boat I've been shoeing the last ten years. I guess the bug is coming back to go fast... or should I say, "Quick"!!

We started this project a year ago and after grinding on it for 4-5 months we sent it to Shoemaker @ GS marine, where the stringers were glassed in and the hull was blueprinted and gel coated burnt orange with some pearl. I machined the intake and set back the pump. We're excited to get started rigging... Any help finding a Rogers emblem for dash would be great.

Thanks,
Tim

that thing looks killer! that orange is awesome! are you going to add any colors to it or keep it solid like that? that's motivating me to resume grinding and preping my advantage for its stringer and misc. repairs. keep up the great progress and pics. :cool:
