Condition was rough, with only a few scrapes outside. Interior was strictly "raceboat", no cabin. Stringers seemed sound and couldn't find any hull problems. It's unpainted, so repairs should have been VERY obvious.
I didn't buy it because of the email responses I got. From those, it looked to need bigger power than I was willing to put together (greater than 600hp). Although I did consider a 4 engine package, and that's still a possibility if it's still available this spring.

Not sure if this interests you, but in Boats and Harbors, there is an ad for a "Navy Seal Gun Boat"...it looks to be a Blue Thunder catamaran and they are asking 15,500 with no motors or drives... the number is 727 243 2219

The sellers sending cockpit interior shots. I will post them when i get them
Bob Morgan told me he built it. others have come forth and recognized the boat also
I even have another OSO brother that is digging up a video and pictures on the lake Mead event this hulll was in.

The seller is still a little steep on the price.

That is a 37' Active cat built by Ross Focht sr. No matter what anybody tells you that boat was built back in the early 80's that is the plug hull for the 39' Express cat, add the infomus express bussel on the back thats what made that 37' a 39'.
Call Ross sr. (810) 794-5551 tell him spark told you to call ! He will confirm this with the picture.
Ps. They also added 5" of free board to the hull from 37' to 39' the 37' pleasure decks were very rare about five with a pleasure deck all the rest were race decks.
Just my .02 cents.

Guys,
Ross Jr. and Sr. Told me its "not theres" As a matter of
fact "Jr " called me Monday and ask me if I have any interest in his new 38 which
just came out of the mold. He sent me pictures about two months ago on there new
Cats. He dropped his price $40.000 since we first spoke.

Maybe your Right did you look at the transom photos? Wheres the big center
square notably used for the Ocean express steering hydraulics??

Cool Re: Active Thunder Cats

Caveman, The bussel on the back is what helped make that boat a 39' along with the extra freeboard they added to the sides. Maybe somebody pulled a mold of one of the original 37' Active marine pleasure decks, Does anybody really know what happen to the assets to Active marine!!!
That is almost the same hull as a 39' Expess, Wouldn't you say John? How have you been?
I just moved again ! I bought a building on I-94 and north river road in Mt. Clemens. I have been staying really busy building new boats, I have done some refinments to my 31' hull and made some big speed improments 117 mph with stock HP500 EFI's 1.26 ratio 32 hydromotive 5 blades and she runs on plane at 1400 rpm's with no spray!
Hey got to go! I'll try to get on here more often then twice a year!!!!!!
