Jerry Thompson worked for Menger Boatworks
for five years before Bill Menger passed away. Over time,
Bill taught Jerry various aspects of the business and made
him general manager. In spring 2006, Jerry purchased the
Menger Cat molds and a parts inventory from the Menger family.
Thompson Boatworks was founded and is currently custom building
the Thom Cat 15 and Thom Cat 19.
Jerry Thompson stands next to the first ThomCat 15
just off the production line.
