Anyone have one, or know someone who is selling one? Turnkey or full project is ok.

Isn't someone in Havasu making a mini cat called a Channel Cat or something? I saw a pic on here in a thread.

Thank you. I've been watching that one, but for some reason, I'm not getting a good feeling about it.

Is that yours?
It's not mine, I've just seen it posted on craigslist a couple different times. I saw the same hull with a kawasaki jet ski engine and a mini jet pump on socaljetboats a few weeks ago, I'll try to find it.

I found it on google:

Years ago, decades ago, we had a set of molds for a little cat at Advantage. A 2 seater. I have no idea if they still have but it might be worth a call to see.

Hi guys! Long term lurker but first time poster. I have learned and laughed so much from most of you.
I have a mini that I built with all my heart and bank account! A recent work injury has impacted me and my current way of life. All the fun stuff has to go as I start over.
Most of the rigging and engine build was done by Bill Curtis in Huntington Beach. Him and his son were multiple year champions in the APBA. Racing and builder of the year. This motor is a premix 2 stroke. Custom mid with above water exhaust and a low water pick up ( on the nose cone ) this started out as a 65 HP block. With all the custom stuff we added. I’d put the HP around 85 HP. The boat is fully capped, real paint and white coated floor. We put everything in the center of the boat to keep it from leaning with a full tank of fuel or big battery.
Custom Featherlight trailer with current PTI tag. Current registration and clean pink slip on the boat. Single Jettrim seat, sparco zero degree steering wheel, carbon fiber paddles on the wheel for up and down trim. Billet trim ram. livorsi gauges, gps speedo, dead mans teatherd kill switch. bay star hydraulic steering ram. Dana marine hardware, Dana marine billet shifter. Custom aluminum fuel tank. There are many trick parts and work done to this boat. Makes it difficult to type out. This must be seen in person.
I have lots pictures on my phone. If you need info please message me at 760 271 1902. We can talk details. Text or a message on here is fine. I’m not sure what I want to ask for this boat yet. I saw this post and thought I would jump on here.
I have only had the boat in the water for a couple hours one time.

Thanks!

This is the Advantage, pretty close to the one listed at Scream and Fly but I can see a few subtle changes from my crappy pic. Don't know who tooled up the original?
Terribly under horsepowered, we ran the Parker enduro in it. I got to drive the first hour and then we switched drivers every hour after that. It was fun, just slooooooow. We finished though!

That thing is KILLER wonder how complicated to make at least a 2 seater but possibly a 4 seater

Gotta have room for the truck.

I’ll start working on a place with a bigger garage when the kids are out of school and I talk Julie into moving.
