In Late 90's And Early 2000's The Awesome 38 Cat Was Being Marketed In The Midwest, Loto And Chicago Area. I Rode In The 38 With Twin 500's And It Ran 80-84. They Put Superchargers On It And It Kept Blowing Drives And Still Could Barely Touch 100 Mph. Maybe Old Molds, But It Was As Someone Stated Earlier, Great In Big Water For Ride Comfort But Heavy And Slow.

I saw this boat at W Point marina (LOTO) when they were still in business. They said the fastest it topped out at was 85 with 500 efi's. I would guess upper 70's with 502's.

I have owned both a 32 Douglas Skater and the 31 Awesome Thundercat. Beleve me that the Awesome 31 is much more stable and slower than the skater. When I was younger, I raced in APBA sport class (S11 Krugerrand) and all I wanted was go fast! Now I am 62 years old and all I want is the warm comfy safe feeling. The 31' Awesome Thundercat is scary enough for me now. Side by side with equal power the skater will run faster but the Awesome will be much more predictible and stable in the water. It has the same tunnel as the Chris Cat . I hope Dan Mintz gets the Awesome brand back on the lakes soon as they are a great boat !

I highly doubt it will run 100, Take off the carb covers and they dont look like Merc 502's either.

What is an Awesome Type? Maybe the new owner of Awesome can chime in and tell us about that.

I understand that the boat did not sell and is still on the market. ypu should be able to contact sellers if interested. the high bid that did not meet the reserve was about 77K

dude whats up with that statement ? maby this one was full of water? maby it's a P.O.S. ? but "be really afraid of Awesome boats all around" why is that? thats like saying be afraid of any other boat that one has had a bad expierence with. I am totally happy with my awesome and have met the new owners who are great people and look for some exciting things from them in the near future
