If you had a choice,18ft 1982 bobble deck Bohner Jet or a 1976 18ft bubble deck Eliminator Jet. Just wanted to no some pros and cons i might be buying a Bohner.
That's what i wanted to know I'm at the point were i want a wild river toy and i feel that the delta pad has been limiting the performance, and the weight of the boat. I will take pics of both boats and post them I'm picking the bahner up Monday or Tuesday. She needs some TLC but the Gel is in wonderful condition.Bahner hands down. The delta pad bottom on the Eliminator will limit your expectations with that kind of power.
Those should be clear Mohogany stringers, (same as my boat) and will hold up to a bunch of HP, they are way stronger than fir.Here are some pics of the Bahner just picked it up today. I will post some of my Eliminator when uncovered next. The haul is in better over all condition the my Elm. Question will the bahner take the 850 HP with the little skinny stringers? Trying to hit the 100MPH mark is it possible with this boat and 850.
