I purchased a used thunderbolt nine years ago .it's big block olds 425 super rocket powered have been over 90 mph and often had two to three feet of air at aprox 40 - 50 mph. i am told the boat was built in 1965 and have re 'glassed twice(due to the serious abuse ) manufactured aluminum gusset supports, dashboard , and fuel tank. my frame is starting to show signs of fracture and I am going to build a new boat this year(thats why i'm here) but i have never had any trouble with the plywood strength.
