To All OSO Members,
I'm finally able to sit down and read the OSO board, and enjoy all the great threads everyone is posting about SKATERFEST II. I wish I could find the right words to describe this event to everyone. I'm sorry all of you could not make it. To have this kind of opportunity, to mingle with this group of people, and ask any question concerning anything about boats, was a very special treat! I'm telling you, don't miss the next one!!
Peter Hledin told us that Skater is producing a V bottom boat in conjunction with Baja, and it should be out in August of this year. It will be 39' long with a 9' beam. Skater is also coming out with a new model cat. It will be a 30 footer!! Due out much later in the year.
Thanks to all who gave so much of themselves in making this a sucessfull event. Special thanks to Rich Luhrs(T2X) who orchestrated this entire event. What a gentlemen he is!
I got to go out for a ride in a Mike Fusco's 40 footer with turbine engines. IT was myself, Peter Hledin, Pat Patell, and of course Mike. I will never forget this ride ............176 MPH!!!!!!! It was unbelievable for ALL of us in this boat.
I do have some great pictures that I will able to post tomorrow night. It was a pleasure meeting all of the people that I listen to and talk to on this board for the last 2 years. Hope to see everyone next SKATERFEST!!
