JEFF’S YELLOW JACKET

Hi, my name is Jeff. This is my 1960 Yellow Jacket Capri Deluxe 14'. It's mostly original and un-restored. We've had this boat for 19 years (as of 2010) it is 1 of 3 Yellow Jackets in our family. The other 2 have been in the family since new, in 1959. The '60 is identical to the '59s. My great grandfather's is a Riviera 14' and my uncle's is a Trigger 14'. This boat makes an appearance in a sci-fi/comedy B movie called 'Lake Evermore.' It also carries one of the latest serial numbers of wood Yellow Jackets. (built March 30th, 1959)

I am an artist & luthier and have made a Mosrite style guitar to match the boat. (By the way, the Ventures, using Mosrites, played a song called Yellow Jacket.)
