Default What happened to the "None of your business" Aronow cat that used to be in Key West?

Anyone know who bought it? It was the Arneson/Merlin diesel combo. I heard the buyer was going to restore it but haven't heard or seen anything about it. I will post some pics tonight but it had an american flag paint theme and, i believe, used to be a tender on a yacht called "Monkey Business". Any info would be appreciated.

There is a big Aronow cat here in Houston, second hand information, but it is stripped of most of it's rigging, been trying to get access to get more info for a couple of months.

Not the same Monkey Business of Gary HArt fame?

That thing was under 100', so doubtful it had a tender that big. Could be one of the owner's later boats?

Not sure which boat or if it was even a tender but, you're right, way too much boat to be a tender on an 83 footer. Cool info though.

I check with TNT and you're right, They have two 39's. One is the shops boat and they don't want to sell and the other has soft floors and stringers. The guy said it has been sitting outside for close to 10 years and he think it is probably all soft. I am looking for a complete boat or just a hull but it needs to be mostly solid. I will redo just about everything to a boat except a ton of fiberglass repair.

Thanks for the tip though Lowblue. Any of you other guys seen any of these hulls laying around anywhere?
