Hi Nauti

Been discussing this over lunch with the GF and i've decided that i'm going to go for a Ceasar (Through recommendation) ThunderCAT

The reason being that 'herself' reckons the thundbolts are like thundercats for OAP's

Personally I think the cats will be more fun for the use i'll give it. I'm still trying to decide to go for new or 2nd hand... would it be hard to find an unabused 2nd hand model thundercat?

Any opinions on the Tohatsu engines?

Tohatsu engines are great - light and powerful and the older 2 strokes are bulle proof. Just tried to buy one but no 18hps left!!!

Thanks for all the help and suggestions, I have decided to go with a brand new Thundercat package. Boys and their toys, eh!

I had origionally planned on selling the sports cruiser and buying a decent diesel RIB, but I like the sports cruiser too much to sell outright. So I still have the sports cruiser for the sunny days and i'll have the Thundercat for messing about in/using as a tender

Engine is coming next week, boat is being delivered mid March





If anyone has one of these, or similar, any advise etc appreciated!

Tohatsu 50HP, stainless prop... the usual setup

I'm going to keep it standard for the time being. Might change props after I get used to it but just want to get used to it for the time being, should be good craic alright

Iam jealous thats a very very nice toy . Iam almost tempted to sell my yam fazer for one of those . In fact if we have another wet summer I probably will .

have you managed to find a new tohatsu 50 . I got the impression that although there are none available there must be some kept back for the zap cat racers .
