It has to be a coincidence but the bow pictures look just like my 386 Sonic. Any transom pictures?

The original Sonic was an evoloution of my own 38' Banana race boat "Top Banana" which then became Coyote then Sonic.....so we know for sure that this is not a Sonic.
There is a thread that covers this topic and gives the time line for this 38 foot design.

The big name boat companies are not using it for sure, we think that a smaller shop may have used it in the past or has it stored somewhere in the various caves of shops in Florida.

When it was stolen, it was on a triple axle Target trailer with the VIN number of 78TRT1294. We have all the documentation to prove ownership....maybe the trailer was parted out from the mold and is out there somewhere and could lead us back to the people who took the mold.

The whole reason my son put this info out there now, is to use whatever connections may be found on OSO to help with recovery of this theft.

I have one of the 41 molds but is not a original. Mine was built for Cigar boats in the late nineties by Jack Clark at Jaguar Catamarans. Let me know if there is anything I can do. If you need to give me a call sometime 770-231-6153.

Just looked through some of my old notes regarding the theft.

The storage yard was told that the mold and trailer had been sold and the people were there to pick them up. As the storage charges were all paid and up to date, there was no reason to hold them.

The storage company told me that the guy who came with the truck for the pickup, was a guy called "Mike". This Mike drove a blue Porsche. He told him they were going to be using the mold to build a boat called "Mirror", or something like that, down in Miami.

The actual date they were taken was the first week of October of 1998

Thanks to everbody on OSO for all the kind words and offers of help as usual!! This is a powerful website. Keep us in mind if you ever come across it - we'd be really grateful. I first wanted to keep it quiet as I didn't want someone else to learn that it was "misplaced" and acquire it for themselves...but what do we have to lose at this point?

The actual date that we learned of the theft was 10/12/98 - not 97 as I incorrectly stated earlier.

The latest wild goose chase I went on turned up the old 39' English Cougar deep-V molds...just before they supposedly met the crusher. I hope these don't belong to someone else out there like us...

Do you have any pictures of the mold itself?
