It's going to be an awesome rig for sure! I would love to see APBA bring back a modern day equivalent of Stock and Super Stock outboard classes. With the current Mercury outboard offerings, make Stock be 30'-32' twin 400ROS boats (X-Cat rules) and Super Stock be 34'-38' triple 400ROS boats. It would be so cool to see the new 34 MTI against the new 35 DW against a 368 Skater - all with triple 400ROS. Kudos to Doug for building this new boat, I'm sure it will be a big success!

When comparing a DW to a Skater the front sponsons are very different. On a Skater they become very "tall" before they taper to the bow which is the opposite of the DW. What are the functionality differences between each style?.

The 35RT tunnel mold is complete. There are 3 parts to the mold (tunnel, 2 sponsons). The 3 parts are aligned with markers. the green color in the pics is the epoxy resin with glass.

Further below, a thick putty substance is applied. This will be the coating that will be milled to bring the mold to within CAD model specs.

Putty-like material being applied. When the putty has dried and hardened, milling begins again to cut it down to CAD specs.
