    [WTS] Powell Houseboat 1 week share

    This is a link to our HB share we have for sale on Powell out of Wahweap Marina. Don't know why I didn't post it here sooner. This is a great "starter" boat to get into Powell. Heck it's cheaper than a rental, buy it and use it for 1 trip then flip it back for sale. My brother and I are...

    [WTS] 1995 Hallett 240 Open Bow

    I've been told this is the "Holy Grail" of Hallett 240's. I don't know about that. It's a boat. It's beautiful and fun and of course I said, "I'm never going to sell it!" I only boat at Lake Powell so performance wise I'd be better off with something a little longer. That's why I'm selling...

    Lake Mead 4th of July

    Just made last minute plans to take the football boat to Mead for the 4th with some friends. Should be a fun time, staying at Hoover Dam Lodge and boating Thursday and Friday. Question is, what is the “go to” activity for 4th celebrations near to Boulder? Or are good fireworks legal that we...

    [WTS] 1951 Ford F1 "History Channel Truck Hunters" build

    Sorry to post the link but since it's on ebay with no price listed....... Decided to sell my 51 Ford F1. It was built for a tv show as a tribute truck to one my dad had in high school. Because of TV crap it's not really at all like what my dad had so it doesn't have much if any sentimental...

    Sea Deck Question

    Full disclosure, I'm not a huge fan of it myself. None on the Hallett, never will be. Some on the new Cobalt (swim platform and trailer) and it is always dirty with footprint or other smudge marks. Just not a huge fan. I guess my need for clean exceeds the soft, grippy feel of the SeaDeck and...

    Wife's 40th

    Surprise party tonight with about 20 close friends and flew her sisters out from Kentucky and North Carolina and her brother from Portland. She has no clue. We've kept it a secret from her parents who will be there and my wife and kids have no clue. It should be a fun night but I'm super...

    [WTS] ARE Bed Cover for GM Dually

    The model years it will fit are 2017-2019, it's currently on a 2017. It's in great shape I just don't need it anymore. It comes with the relay for remote lock/unlock so it functions when door locks do. It matches GM Summit White and is like new, has ceramic coat on it and grey carpet on...

    Becker Custom Trailer, is there any better? I know they're super expensive but it looks like you get what you pay for, these things are sweet. I'm not in the market right away but maybe in a year or two. Does anybody have other suggestions for a custom enclosed trailer manufacturer? One...

    Time to sell?

    Well, with some hesitation, it looks like I'll be selling my 240 sometime in the next year. I'm not sure if this is a "letting you know" thread or a "please talk me out of this" thread. LOL. The boat is great and I really have no complaints. It's my current strong connection to many things...

    Hitch Storage

    Excessive? Probably. I hate getting grease everywhere and my hitch floating around the back of my truck. I also don't usually leave my hitch in receiver, no reason really just a preference. Well, I got two of these hitches (one for suburban 2" receiver and one for truck 2.5") and built these...

    New Boat

    Got a new boat last week. We ordered it months ago and took delivery at Elsinore a week ago. We are keeping our '95 Hallett 240. This is a Cobalt R7 Surf. We boat a lot at Powell and this will be super family and kid friendly for all the activities we want to do. We live in Orange County, CA...

    Imco SC Upper Case and Parts

    I'll say "make me an offer." What it may be worth to somebody it may not be worth it to another. I'm in SoCal, you can pick up in Fullerton or Mission Viejo, I won't ship. This was a drive I blew up Sept of 2016 had it rebuilt during off season and then it knocked a few teeth off the gears...
