Current Project


Our current 'work in progress' is DANGER ZONE and this section will be updated on a regular basis.  Don Hettish of La Verne, California designed this fine record holder.



  • 19 1/2 Foot "WILDERCRAFT - Experimental Drag Boat " NJBA 1987 Ski Jet record holder held by my good friend Don Hettish of La Verne, California. Don Hettish built this rare tunnel ram, his craftsmanship and attention to detail is amazing. I bought this boat from Don when he built the Danger Zone II. My family and I have converted it somewhat to allow us to use it for cruising the Colorado River. 500 hp is now mounted on the four point mounting system, the record holding bow tie put out an estimated 850 hp to the jet pump.
  • Tunnel 130 mph rated Ram Hull 
  • Jet Drive with Safety Blow Out Pressure Valves and special race gates and pre pump loaders.
  • Current Engine: Intalled - New 502 cu. in. Generation VI Big Block Chevrolet Bow Tie, Holley 660 cfm Street Avenger Carburetor, MSD ignition with rev limited, Dooley 9 quart custom oil pan and custom Bassett long curley water injected headers. Pictures to be updated shortly. This boat is featured on as a project boat.
