The End of The Epic Road Trip and a New Project Unveiled! Finnegan's Garage Ep.145

We've come to the end of our road trip from California to Georgia. In this video you'll see Newbern and I battle through the worst storm we've ever experienced as we journeyed through Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama. We managed to bring two new project boats home with us. The first boat was loaded inside of Lincoln Hawk for the trip home and if you're a fan of Roadkill then you'll recognize this 1976 Rogers Bonneville TR jet boat. The second boat has been under wraps literally and figuratively speaking, since I ordered it from Eliminator Boats in Mira Loma, California last year. We managed to tow it over 2,100 miles with a custom Kokopelli trailer riding on golf cart tires behind Lincoln Hawk and now it's time to unwrap it. We'll be refurbishing the Rogers and building the 21-foot Eliminator tunnel hull from scratch. Stay tuned for more videos on both boats plus more fun with Game Over, the 711ci twin-turbo jet boat as well.

Fun fact...if you buy 60 gallons worth the fuel loves will give you a free shower...all you have to do is say you need a team shower and they'll give you two separate showers.

Wow! Eliminator knocked it out of the park! Now, please listen to your wife "now get it done". Seriously, thank you bringing boats back to the mainstream. Most hot rod guys do not realize how huge the hot rod boat boat culture was back in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. As much as I love "hot rods", I love "hot rod boats" more. Appreciate all you do for the sport!

The start of the episode and watching Mike just glide over bumps with the air ride seat and Newbern being jolted by each bump made me wonder if they fight over who gets to drive Lincoln Hawk

Think this one should be named multiplayer since you can take the family with you
Here in Germany a lot of trailers come with 10 or 12" wheels, advantages being as you said, you can build the trailer lower to the ground when the wheels are under the bed. The dealership I work at has a tow truck that has dual 10" rear axles on airbags so you can lower the rear end to load up. Nothing to special about it. Does sacrifice some ride comfort though as opposed to regular 14" or 16" trailer wheels.

Is it some kind of law that you have to have a "not for hire" sign on the truck?

@Flat4Buggy 2 oh sweet, I had a google about it and couldn't really find anything. Kinda surprising you don't need to get licence to drive something this big though

It allows the truck to be driven without a CDL, (And it doesn't have to stop at weigh stations) since it's registered as an RV.

There's really no sense pushing yourself too hard or fast on a road trip. I know most people just want to get it over with but that's the dangerous way of doing it. Take your time it'll be over before you know it and you'll be home safe and sound.

Motor Trend's parent company went bankrupt, and sold to Discovery back in 2018. Roadkill is no longer on NOsections. You now have to subscribe to either the Motor Trend app, or the Motor Trend channel through Amazon Prime for $5 a month, to watch Roadkill.

As a person that grew up hanging out the Colorado/Parker river as a kid and had parents and all their friends with jet boats, maybe in your next vid you can touch on why you chose the TR hull. If memory serves me right, in the motor swap vid you stated that the TR hull is one the boats that wont throw you out if things go bad. Good info to throw out there.

Car trailers on triple 10” wheels are common in the uk and good up to 2600kg. I can’t imagine your jet boat weighs that much? www.brianjamestrailers.co.uk/main-categories/open-car-transporter/t-transporter/

My neighbor's 18 ft Searay has those tires, but it appears to be the normal Shorelandr trailer. His tires are rated at 950 lbs each. Is this boat considered a pickle fork?

I had a '76 Rogers Bonneville myself, and wish I never sold it. I once met up with a guy at a boating forum who worked for Roger Weiman. He said if you told Roger the last four numbers of HIN (month and year built), he'd remember off the top of his head who ordered it, what the original color, and engine was. He was that low volume of production.
