Default Calling the OSO Brain Trust..........

I need to get some information or where the molds might be for the following boat.

Back in the 80's a small 13' pickle fork cat with a single 50 HP outboard was produced in Florida. It was MFG under 3 names

SCORPION

FUN CAT

KIDDES Marine

Any input on this like are they still made maybe under a new name or where the mold can be found and purchased would be of great help.

Thanks

someone posted a thread on screamandfly about fun cats - probably a month or so ago.

El Boss is a 10' Cougar Cub that we built at Cougar in the early 80's.

Those are all small boats but all different.
The Fun Cat is the best built and most functional in my opinion. The Active Thunder mini cats are supposed to be bad azz but Ive never seen one, very few were built.

In the V department, the Sharkey Bullet is top dog.

How long were they built for? This one has 93 at the end of the Serial number on the transom?

There is a builder here in No Cal working on a new mold for a cat now. Seems he is offering with outboard or twinn "wave runner" motors. I don't have any info on it but I've seen the prototype twinn engine. Looks like a mini Skater.
