  1. #21
    still can't see a difference. check the tunnels. really want to see the differences get a tape measure and do some checking. as far as wood plugs there are pictures of them.

    The industry professionals know who did what and who knows how.
    It is so easy (if the money is available) to take a successful boat, make a few minor changes (that may, or may not affect performance), and make something different. Take that and throw an expensive paint job on it and you will have something that the general public deems a killer boat.
    What I can't figure out is, how come NOBODY makes there copies look different? They all (Spectre, MTI, Motion, etc) look so simular to the Skater! WHY IS THIS? If I was in the boat business, I would be embarassed to build something that looks like the others!

    Hint.................. Beware of straight lines mixed with compound curves on the same boat.....sure indication of a (ahem) mixture of design(er)s....................... If it looks like parts of the same boat were designed by different Romanesque and the other's not because the Romans sacked Gaul......rather that a "newbie" sacked an original.

    Eltros forever!

    T2x, could you please tell us who the original and current (successful) cat desingers are and what their creations were? I know hledins are associated with skater and many have copied skater. who else has made a successful original cat design?

    dredgeking, micheal peters(tancara)to name one. randy took skater, tancara, and victory team uae rescources to come up with the design for marine technology. check out the uim on the web and compare thier current styles against tommy bahama and peir 57 then compare that to skaters

    The only "OTHER" popular cat design, in my opinion, is the SHADOW/ChrisCat. Anything else was/is a wannabe.
    There is Cougar, good boat for it's day. Then there is the Peters' designs (Maelstrom, Apache, CUV, etc) but seems to be Hit & Miss designs that run ONLY on pure power (which most anything will run if it has enough power) See picture.
