TT Supacat anyone?
Myself and a work coleague decided earlier in the year that we wanted a Zapcat or Thundercat each after seeing them on Youtube.The problem was we thought they were too expensive so we trawled through some business sourcing websites and found a company that made a similar boat.
We contacted the manufacturer and requested the specifications,asked the price and minimum order.We then had the specifications changed to tailer make a stronger boat and to make them from our requests.We had them made from 1.2mm P.V.C instead of 0.9mm which seems to be the normal thickness,we wanted them longer so we could get freinds or family in,ours are 4.5metres long and we had the floors made of sectional marine aluminium.The transom is however made of thick marine ply instead of aluminium or stainless steel,but there are two drain valves in the transom which do an excellent job.The boats are CE plated,they came with stainless steel d rings,all rope fittings and rope,extra footstraps built in.
We havent raced these boats,but used them purely for fun and have stood up to our abuse without any problems,but our engines are only standard,I can say they go like stink and turn on a sixpense.
I am not trying to outdo Thundercats or Zapcats they look fantastic,but I we just couldnt spend that sort of money for another toy.
We had to import a few of these for the minimum order and have got a couple left if you are interested.We are just trying to cover our costs and we were possibly looking at bringing more in but now the dollar is at $1.42 to the pound its not going to happen.Anyway hope you like the picture of my boat,just before launching at Colwyn Bay in North Wales.
