Pioneer 19' Jet

The boat was 18' 11" at the centerline with an 80" beam. Steve Hall purchased an 18' Southwind to use as a plug, extended it by a foot, reworked the bottom and the upper deck before building the mold. Lake Nacimiento was the primary testing area.

Biesemeyer 18' Flatbottom (Long Deck)

Rusty Biesemeyer, Julian Pettengil and Ron Ehde took a hull(maybe a Aqua Craft Shark) modified it, built a mold and the current (wide) Biesemeyer that has dominated flatbottom racing for about 40+ years was born. The upper deck was designed by Rusty. Julian built the wide boat with at least 3 different decks. The Standard race deck(which we see most of) a long deck and the Ski Deck.
