Re: Help me identify my bayliner,82 Cobra ski 18'.6
Call this # ,360-435-5571. This is the # to Bayliner . Have your Hull Identification Number ready, and they will send you an owners manual to your boat...I got mine in the mail last week,...no charge...

Define rare. Most boats from the 80's aren't. If you get into something from the 50 or 60's, you may have something old enough that not a lot have survived. Especially wooden boats. Most fiberglass stuff from the 80's have survived in enough numbers to not be consider rare. If you're looking for actual production numbers, Bayliner doesn't publish them to my knowledge. Not anywhere I've seen. You could try the Bayliner owners club forum.
I know, old post, could not resist, good memories. There were just under 50 of these boats built, all in 1982; I owned hull numbers 9 and 44. #44 was tan with the red like your photos; #9 was white with blue stripes. #44 was powered with a Volvo Penta 260 with a 280 drive. I put a 450+HP 406 SBC in it and installed a Volvo speedmaster lower unit on the drive (looks like a mini Merc SSM#3). Fast, safe boat; no stress cracks. I did straighten the bottom (took the hook out). #9 was powered with a Merc 470, exactly half as fast as #44.
