19xx? Yellow Jacket Boat 14'

by RC
(Kansas City, MO)

I'm in the process of restoring this boat but am in dire need of finding someone who has a listing of the hull numbers and the year associated with them.

I'm guessing this boat is around a 1952.

Can anyone please help identify it if I sent you the numbers?


My email address is Y141972@aol.com.

Thanks!

I'll TRY to post a couple of pictures OF what I've gotten done so far.

I redid the trailer and the hull this summer.....still need to do the deck.

For fun I've attached a picture of the Tow Vehicle as well.

Thanks to other individual's help listed in my former add, it appears the boat is a 1952 model.


I finished the boat and built a 1948 Evinrude Speedifour engine which I ran on its first voyage this past May.


The boat took on zero water and fired right up and ran like a new one!


I'm hoping to get this update as well as a few pictures posted to my original add but must admit I'm not a computer guru so my apologies if I have completed this task incorrectly.



Thanks so much for your site.

I thoroughly enjoy visiting it and reading everyone's updates and tips!

Deck is all redone with 10 coats of varnish.

Hardware is now polished and installed.

Need to make a pattern for the windshiled yet.

Plan on building a Speedifour or Big Four Evinrude for the transom.

Thanks so much to Michael Cole offering info on my Yellow Jacket.

I wasn't sure how to write and thank you so I'm trying it this way.

My father, Naval Architect Richard C. Cole was the original designer of the Yellow Jacket boats.

Your best chance of matching the numbers would be to contact David at david@historywithheart.com

He is a big fan of the Yellow Jacket boats and may be able to help you match the numbers.
