    Default Snapper Boats 1986 By Hallett

    Hill Marine was in the middle of the Mini Boat Revolution, 1986: Western Engine was most helpful, also! Hallett built these Snappers for us. Bob Carlson drew the plans. My dad built the wooden "Plug". Ron Edie of Eliminator Fame, tooled the deck, Nick Barron of Hallett Boats made the molds and built the boats.

    The problem, Jet Skis were new, you could get one the day you walked in to a Kawasaki Dealer and they had low payments.

    Ron, with the new interest in small boats, did Geoff ever get the original Danny Critchfield molds delivered to him back in 2012? Last post back then was they were on there way. That hull with a small motor would be great in your 2018 events.
