Friend and I bought a 73 Hallett. Can't believe I'm about to do this again..... at least all I have to worry about on this one is the engine and drive train. Cosmetics and trailer is on him.

It came with everything except a motor. Here we go! Budget build and flip with some fun in between is the plan

Cool !
Where do you find these little gems in the rough ?

Found this one in Beaumont, 5 hour drive there, 5 hours back. Guy was super cool though. Price was agreed upon before we left Austin, boat was exactly as it was described down to every flaw with pictures. Cash for title swap and we were on our way. Craigslist success story.

My first boat was a 1969 19.5 Hallett jet, from what I can see, it's very similar. Good luck.

This one has all Hallcraft running gear with an in/out only. Im considering installing a velvet drive to make it a little easier to drive but haven't decided yet.

You pulled the trigger quicker. I saw this float on a sight requesting transport cost from Beaumont Tx to Flagstaff Az.

You were one of about 200 lol, he had 4 guys lined up behind us just for today and the weather was shit. We had to road prep it in the mud 😟

The bones are good but the paint should really be stripped off and redone. We don't know how far were gonna take it yet. Getting it driving is first priority.

I'll let you know as soon as its for sale😇😜🤑
