Was that the tv show with Hulk Hogan. I used to watch that show all the time. Maybe I should not be admitting that...

What REALY impresed me was how big the cabin was. That is I think it was. I only saw it once when I was flipping through the channels.

Cool

Flipper was a great TV show! I started with a little flat bottom with an OB like the kid and always wanted a Twin setup like the Ranger had. I never did get a Dolphin to swim with in PA.....That show made me the boater I am today.....Mike.

There was a Jackie Chan movie older one before he became famous. Can't remember the name but he gets in a boat and rides off in it had 3 or maybe even four outboards on it.

CV-23,
That little flat bottom on Flipper was a 13 ft Boston Whaler and the Ranger's, which was his Dad, was a twin engine Thunderbird.

Saw the boat from "Thunder in Paradise" once at a boat show in Orlando. Looked good from a distance. Up close it was a real mess. Stress cracks everywhere and it looked like they used a roller and brush to paint it. Was not impressed.

I shouldn't admit this, but the sail boat in "Captain Ron"?
I'd love to own it. I think it's one beautiful boat.

I think the Movie your thinking of is called
"Blue Thunder" Produced
by Darrel Zanick.
Director was Paul Michael
Glasser (Starsky&Hutch)
Stunt Coor. Was Terry
Leonard (Raiders of lost
Arc) So the Movie was like a Raiders on the water.
The Boat race filming was
done at Marathon Key in
Florida, 4 "Movie Boats"
Mixed in with Big time
race boats.
There was also another Boat race movie started that could have been a
good one, With Jan-Michael
Vincent, Sam Elliot and
Bridgett Fonda.
Some basic race filming was started in the San
Francisco and Lake Mead
area Where Jan-Michael ran
a Offshore Race and WON.
