Back to the origional post, I wish I was going, every time I see 3 or 4 parked accross the street at Stonecrest I always go take a look. They are monsters and i would love to have one.

Thanks Steve I'll try and make it, that way we can all be alittle less satisfied with our boats

Great offer again Steve.

Have a great time.

I've ridden in a friends 43' - what a blast! Nice of you to offer, and I'd like to stop by to see what the newer boats have to offer.

Our first experience on a Black Thunder was on a demo ride at a Poker Run on Lake St Clair MI, many moons ago. We talked about what a smooth ride it was for years. Finally last year we got our new to us 43 Black Thunder and have been happy with the ride and the layout of the cabin. Now if we'd only win the lottery, the 46 is looking pretty good
Have a great show.

I did a ride with Steve in 2002. It was the most memorable part of my Miami Boat Show experiences!! 73+ mph in a 46. When I can get my real estate career in high gear I'll own one of these one day for sure!
Thanks, Steve

We took a ride with Steve last year in the 46 equipped with twin 525's. There were five of us on board, half fuel and Steve thought we were somewhere around 15,000 lbs.
We ran over 70 on the GPS that day across Biscayne Bay. Unforgettable experience!
We hope to stop by and and at least say 'hi' since we missed you in Detroit this year, Steve!

Guys and gals,

You're all welcome to come on over. My cell is 954-980-2643, otherwise just come on by and we'll have some fun. The owners of Black Thunder, Bob and Don Jenkins have been very gracious in letting us just have a ball and share the fun with anyone who likes boats. Some folks buy, some don't, most important, is that we can share our passion. As you may know, I don't work for Black Thunder, I'm a customer. Never made a penny selling one of thier boats, never chose to. Just very appreciative that they ask me to handle the demo rides at the Miami show. Sorry that it offended this poor Suncoast fellow, Life is so joyful with so many great people, maybe he was just having a bad day......

Take care,

Steve

That's a very generous offer Steve. Wish I could get out of the frozen tundra to take you up on it.
