All the Right Moves
You know the 33 Lightning rides on a proven bottom because it has the same design as the 35 Lightning, which exceeds 100.
Strong at Heart
The 33 Lightning is built just like its larger siblings, with a hand-laid laminate comprising vinyl ester resin, multi-directional woven fiberglass cloth, and high-density foam coring in the bottom and deck. Stringers are marine plywood encapsulated in fiberglass, and the hull-to-deck joint is fully bonded with fiberglass tabbing around the perimeter. A white plastic rubrail caps the joint in a clean installation.
Fountain chose a traditional engine installation for the 33 Lightning -- the motors are bolted in side by side rather than staggered. The center stringer is thickened with extra layers of plywood so that the inboard L-angle-style aluminum motor mounts can use each other as backing plates when the bolts are driven through to accept the backing nuts. The outboard mounts are conventional L-angles supported on the inside with backing plates. You'll find the trim pumps forward on the firewall bulkhead for easy refills. Strainers are forward of the motors in easily reached locations.
This is a nice boat. it appears to in good condition, the owner states 100K restoration was done to make it right, The owner also states this was an ex-DEA boat.
