the stingers were in the first 3 seasons...kvs there after. There were 3 of each boat and the first white stinger which was in the pilot. Moby Griffin of Moby Marine in Miami was the Marine cooridator... he might know the where abouts of one of the originals.

We just sold a kv yesterday for 46 k... great boat

OBNOXUS21,

I saw you post those pics of your boat on the other thread. Sweet boat!! I like the pic of your boat going away. What are you running in that thing?

Searace,

You sold that yellow, black and white KV? That was a pretty sweet ride! Where'd it go?

The KV's have flat decks, arches, and huge engine covers/sun pads. Most came with Merc 420's I believe and TRS drives. There are a couple in Grand Haven (one is Boatme's old boat, and in pristine condition). The other has been painted by the owner (and it looks like he did it himself) and really doesn't look good IMHO.

Awsome rough water boats.

I know exactly where the #2 boat is.
They only used three in the making of the show. You could probably pick this one up for a real good deal as long as you are willing to spend some money redoing the boat

Jason, Give me a call if you are looking to buy one of these boats. How much are you looking to spend?
