What I know about the INSTIGATOR boat.
Viper was originally a 35ft hull that was shortened to 32Ft. 5 hulls were built in New Jersey and the mold was destroyed.
Marc from Activator was contracted to build a mold off of a Viper by a guy in Freeport. Marc made some changes to the bottom.
The guy in freeport sold the mold to Scorpion marine in Florida.
Marc took a burnt Scorpion and made another mold which he changed the bottom again and made a deck from scratch. This was now a 32 Activator, which is actually a few inches longer than the original Viper.
Tempest is a direct pop off of the Viper. The 2 boats are the same.
The 32 Activator is now being changed to a step bottom with a Euro-style deck. When completed this boat should do very well in Factory-2.
