  1. Taylor Jet Boat

    I am looking for a Taylor Craft Jet Boat to buy. A 20 ft from '79 until they went out of business in '81. Or if anyone knows who bought the molds from the Oscar Taylor of Taylor Boats in Cushing, OK?

    Taylor boats, i.e Big T Fiberglass in Cushing didn't go out of biz in '81...they didn't fold until much later in the 80's, might even have been early 90's..we were a Taylor dealer in the mid 80s. Oscar allegedly owed a sales rep a bunch of money and he and a partner - Ervin Capps of Condor fame iirc - "borrowed" the 20LP molds and produced a few modified LP's under the "Laker" brand...the story then goes that Oscar found where they were laying the boats up and took a chainsaw to the molds ..which is a tragedy because the 20 LP is a classic and was a fantastic boat.
