Default Thunder Cat ??

Has anybody heard of a Cat manufacturer called Thunder Cat? Boat looks like around late 80s, early 90s and I estimate to be 28ft with a single inboard. Any info? Good boat or junk and what would one expect to pay with a decent engine?

Thanks

i remember seeing two thundercats on LI...a white one in moriches at harts cove and a red one in a warehouse in happauge. looked pretty cool, but never talked to anyone about them.

the white outboard cat, hot-n-nasty the billy used to race was a cobra cat if i'm not mistaken...(i detailed it for him before a race back around 96)

I used to run a 32 with Keith Holmes of Cat Can Do up here in the poker runs. Good solid boat for the most part. Heavy and not too fast for the power. He had about 700 per side with #5 drives and it ran around 105mph. He actually cut his teeth on the GLSCS racing it as Ahstaa La Veesta Baby.
