Shane,

I don't think that is the original King Sting. Doesn't look like the one that was here back then. Maybe ask Jim.

The Original "King Sting" was a 30" Shadow Cat w/twin SB Chevy's.... Gale Banks Turbos w/Nitrous.... He smoked everyone so bad at the Lucky LasVegas Shootout that Bob Nordskog lobbied for rules changes to make the boat illegal the following year.... The West Coast guys got miffed when Big Jim blew them all away! Boat ran 168 at Lake X... according to the lettering on the back of the boat.... Jim doesn't take losing well!

120 in the late 80's was considered very fast! Seems to me the boat was lettered on the side a very large KING STING name. Was it black, red and yellow, or something like that?

STRIKE... you remember well... that boat blessed the Cover of POWERBOAT! I remember sitting in the middle of Lake George in my Stoker MODVP.... which ran well into the 90's... one fall day & having Jim D. make several runs 50-100' off my bow in that Shadow.... He's quite a character.... knows how to put togehter nice stuff... I did think that this current boat was a 30' skater though?
