I really like this hull. But in the end I simply refused to do what he did and purchase the boat without paper work. So back to plan "A", I will look forward to building exactly what I want.
Thanks

Depends on what he wants for it. I'd buy it for the right price.

He started out @10K then went to 9 after I went to see it. You might get it for 7 or 8? I think I have pics on another PC. Do you want more info on it? He had it CL for over 2 months.

If it's a Thunder product the HIN begins with TTU. There is a long story that goes along with Thunder - he built some dream stuff but in the end his girlfriend and his attorney did him in.... as in spun off the company and sold his hull molds (for several different models) of boats he used to produce. A combination of that and a poor economy meant the original entity never completely recovered. I believe HAAN in Sarasota has the molds for my boat - there were a few produced as a "Blue Lightning" and another name but they didn't produce more than a handful. The last one I heard they produced went somewhere up in the Chesapeake Bay Area.

I have one and the manuf ID code is TTU, thunder boats and design. One can do a search on the uscg website and make sure the HIN is what it's supposed to be

Susky gave me his # and I texted him, asking for photos. I did get a response where he sent a pic that looked like it was taken from far away, in a storm, with an old point and shoot camera and then scanned in, pixelated. I had to laugh. I asked for some of the interior and more of outside and he never responded.
I am converting one of them that was originally I/O, and that was before I started so I thought it would be easier to start w an outboard model--couldn't get any info from him. In mine, it's mostly composite construction , exception being the bulkhead in front of the transom, and the transom But it is good quality marine ply, and I have found no rot.

Good luck with the conversion - start a thread on here so we can see your progress... (always fun to watch). I have a few more little things to do with mine and then we will fish her awhile till we move up. Happy to answer any questions and share what little knowledge I possess��

hi, I see this post are quite old but I figure you may still own your King cat....I recently bought a king cat 32
and I have rebuild the entire electrical, new electronics
etc....I have Steimless marine Jack plates and a pair of Yamahas 225 / 2 stroke ox66 25 shaft
Iím looking at a deal on a pair of Yamahas 2017 4 strokes ...but they are 30 inch shafts....I see in your picture of your boat they look like 30ís Iím wrong?
and if they are 30ís are you happy with the performance?
i will appreciate any feed back?

There’s a thread over on either offshore only or scream n fly about one from 2005 w yam 30” and those were mounted too deep. —his perf #s were not that good. 30” would be fine as long as u can put the prop and lower unit at the right height. I converted a 2000 king cat I/o to outboard but have not splashed it yet. I’ve had a lot of things get in the way of the project but it’ll get done one of these days...I have twin 300 Xs mercs, 25” on it.

Sorry for the slow response- not on here much... Mine has 25” shafts and they are mounted a little high currently. I’m going with atlas jackplates mounted lower and should be up and running early February. So far my boat has run high 50’s with a pair of 225 Merc Opti’s and gets 2mpg key on to key off. Once I am finished and she is perfect I’ll be putting her up for sale. (Moving up to a larger cat). I’ve done so much to and with this boat - she will be tough to let go of - for sure!

There was a guy up here in Jax who had a Thunder Kingfish with blue sides called Warlock I used to see in the tournaments around here a couple years back.
