Default 24 cat hull

Does anyone know the make of this cat? The owners says its a early 90's eliminator but I've never seen an eliminator like this.

Looks like a Stray Cat built in the 80's. I don't think many more than a few were built....

I was gonna say Stray Cat as well, Looks to have some modern Naca ducts added to it, but it does resemble a Stray Cat...

yea it does look like an Alley Cat from Sanger, or a splash of one. The Alley Cats have a very compound transom that has a couple angles coming together at the shear line and that one appears to be flat. They had several different decks for that hull as well, cool boat would love to have a copy they ran pretty well with a pair of 225's. It has a light feel that you can fly on the tunnel

come to think of it the angle of attack looks way to shallow for an Alley Cat splash that one is very pointy. Makes me think it is much older, early eighties vintage splash. heres a profile of the Sanger



Cougar splash maybe?

I remember a boat just like that in an old ad for "Thunder" boats. They were out of the mid-west somewhere if I remember right. Some sort of pre-cursor to Active Thunder I recall.
