Hey Randy, that is a great looking boat. The numbers are engraved really deep. I'm surprised that there's no trace of them. Mine:
 

I don't think the dash 'Bird' emblem was used on all of them. My boat is a Virginia built one and had no trace of it. Someone else asked me about reproductions a while back and I think I've finally figured out how to do a pretty good replica of them.

Thank you, for the help.  That gives me a good shot at it.  I'll get some pictures up in a bit.
  The search starts.

Here is a shot of the serial # . If there is a lot of paint or the has been heavily sanded, it may have all but disappeared. It's pretty faint.Get a bright light on it.  Let us know what you find. And a a shot the ID plate Rick made for me.

Hi Randy,
My serial is stamped on the starboard side up near the rubrail, forward of the windshield as JR describes.

I produce some stuff for Jetstreaks, some of which you can see in my 'Etched parts' and 'Jetstreak' threads linked in my signature....
  • Capacity tags
  • Tail light lenses
  • Glo-pole stern lights
  • Steering wheel trim rings
  • Jetstreak dashboard  logo decals
  • EPDM rubber gaskets for deck hardware
  • Windshield templates
While I don't make it, I can point you to replacement rubber parts. I also have some decent deck hardware and lighting parts.

I am kinda backed up right now and busy at work and home, but feel free to shoot me a PM with what you need and I'll try to fit you in when I can.
