DESCRIPTION

This is a very special and unusual,(The Roy Rogers) Yellow Jacket and everything is as new. A 17 foot molded mahogany speedboat Model 16- s/n 0314143; with unique Mercury Mark 78E mechanical reversing 6-cyl., 70hp engine- s/n1167800. Comes with Husky A3 Trailer- s/n 31940. Professionally restored to like new with all original parts. The engine has recently been professionally serviced by North Island Marine Service. While working well, the motor was thoroughly gone through and NOS parts were used to renew the Stator, complete Water Pump and all Engine Seals, and new fuel lines, as well as a major tuneup.
I have All papers and documents since new, including owners manual for the engine, boat, and trailer as well as all service records. I believe this to be the Fury Deluxe model distinction, made for special customers, with special colors and the transom cover. This boat came from within 20 Miles of the Company Factory where it was built and may have been one of the Custom-Built models for the owner of the Company Roy Rogers. There is nothing in the records to indicate this but it does not conform to any of the standard configurations and is featured in several adds with Roy, Dale, and Family. Found in many of the research literature. Records indicate that the bottom was fiberglassed to the spray rails in 1958.
Complete set of photos may be seen by request on Dropbox.com. Please send photo request and any questions, by email to me at [email protected]
PS: Roy Rogers won at least two, speed records in a boat like this with two Mark 78 engines; New Orleans to Saint Louis, and Long Beach to Catalina
