Just Brought a Zapcat

well the Sparrowhawk is still in rebuild phase and coming along slowly but i have just sold the jetski and noticed a mate was selling his zap cat. i have wanted one for around 10 years but never took the plunge and can't believe i didn't, its awesome.

needs few little bits like fuel pump rebuilding, foot straps replacing but boat is solid and has all the extras.

one thing i wanted to ask anyone who has these is do you know what foam is used on the floor and where i could get some more from?

Great pics and nice looking boat. Have you got a 50hp or 30hp on it?

Quite fancy one of these myself as well as the rib, as I know these are quick and would give a jetski a run for the money

My brother-in-laws Zap will do 45/50 mph, 50hp Tomatsu
My Ski RXP-RS 260 will do 70 mph

Zap cats are tons of fun, wheelies and they turn hard! - u just got to hang on

Looks nice!
