Default Anybody have and pics of the boat from the TV Show Thunder In Paradise

I was talking to a buddy last night about boats and he mentioned the show "Thunder In Paradise" with Hulk Hogan in it. I can remember briefly seeing the show.

Just wondering if anyone has any pics of the boat and any info on it?

Its true that it was a scarab made to look like a stealth boat,
I have some photos, And a movie that was made using the boat I also remember a story in powerboat.
Your ohotos of the Maimi Vice show at Universal Hollywood
brings back memories, I did a lot of work on the Scarab boats
used in the shows both the Outboards with Jet and the New
boats with the scarab Jet pumps.
I was also involved with the Lagoon Show at Universal Florida
with the Scarab Jet Sprints I also have videos of those shows.

OH NO!!!!.............Blunder in Paradise!!!!

If it wasn't filmed at Walt Disney World in the main lagoon it might have had a chance.
I saw it at a boat show in Orlando. What a mess. Spider cracks all over the place. Cheap fiberglass work. Looked real cheesy up close.
I think it was later converted and used in the movie McHale's Navy.
