Wish I could take the drive, but we have a boat show next week. Sorry, can't make it.
Hey do you remember "KING STING"?

Yeah I remember the KING STING! It is a new 32 Skater with AWESOME POWER! The owner, Jim DeNooyer is a friend of mine. Boat runs 160+ and his old King Sting, the 28 is now called Shootout. I do not know what happened to his old Shadow.

King Sting is now in FL being redone to original. The owner called us a couple of days ago.
In1986 when I brought offshore to the area he was the quickest and loudest boat here. He also brought an outboard cat if I remember correctly. Back then we ran a river course, so it was calm.

Striker,

Two questions; Jim called and said he is having the OLD King Sting Shadow re-done or is he having his new 32 Skater painted like the old boat? I highly doubt the new boat is being re-painted. Secondly, were you thinking about his old Cougar with 4 Johnson's?

I'm not sure, but thought it was the original, with a new and different owner. The boat I am refering to is in FL now. That's what I heard.

I would like to see photos of the orig. King Sting Shadow 30. as it is now. I spent many hours working on it in the 80's and it ran a very respectable 121 on lake mead with twin 400" motors back then. The Ironman.
