Default AMT Cats

Can anyone provide me some history on the AMT cats? I keep hearing DW mentioned in most of the searches along with AMT, whats the relevance of that?

I know AMT quit manufacturing hulls and sold the molds to predator.

But I cant find hardly ANY pics of the AMT. Specifically the Poker Run Models..

Was there any problems with the hulls? Planing, porposing, etc?

Any help or photos is appreciated.

Just doin some research!

they are laid up much better, some of the others leave something to be desired. Just check any of them (like any boat) very well inside and out.

Why so many changes in ownership? Were they just struggling to sell or what?? Im leery of buying an off-brand boat as it is, but to hear that so many people have been involved with it, it really makes me wonder..

The boat is an 04

It is a 4 seater Full Canopy
It was rigged by Supreme Marine, Ft Lauderdale
Built by LA Marine in Ft Lauderdale.
Someone up north supposedly did some reinforcements on the hull. It was only raced ONE time.
It 2.5 race motors on it that are a few years old but brand new gearcases.
The owner is ready to wheel & deal on it, Steve Logan is his name.
