Guasti Boats

Drive Types: 
V-drive

Guasti Boats were built in North Hollywood, Ca. Their shop was on Lankershim Blvd. Ray Caselli (007 Panic Mouse) raced one before Hondo came along.

Bill Guasti backed Nelson Hall in the manufacture and sale of Guasti Boats. The hulls were laid up somewhere in the Inland Empire, possibly Fontana. Nelson's shop (Guasti Boats) was on the east side of Lankershim Blvd. in North Hollywood Ca- below Magnolia but above Burbank Blvd.

Sammy believes they were all 16 footers, with the exception of one 17 footer and a twin engined day cruiser type boat. Somewhere around '63 there was a gathering of Guasti's at the River, 16 boats.
