Thunder - Hi-tech 43-foot
speedboat on THUNDER IN PARADISE/SYN/1994-95.
Thunder was a prototype Scarab vessel built for the military by
Randolph J. "Hurricane" Spencer (Terry "Hulk" Hogan), a former
Sporting a splash of yellow paint - that spelled out the word
'Thunder" on both sides of the vessel - the battle-ship grey super
boat featured such gadgetry as a sophisticated onboard "talking"

anti-theft system that gave violators an electrical shock (a la
Captain Nemo's futuristic submarine in the 1954 Disney movie
20,000 Leagues Under The Sea); and high speed engines that

Brubaker (Chris Lemmon), Hurricane hired his boat out to
interested clients for a mere $5,000 a day plus expenses.
