I raced a 36 Skater in 00 and 01, Team Tellium for those that don't know. The boat is simply amazing in rough water, the snot of Corpus Christie would wear you out but the boat performed perfectly. In the HUGE swells of Daytona in 01 the boat always flew predictibly even though we had huge air. Sarasota in 01 was also incredibly rough, again nothing unexpected from the boat and it outran everything. The only time we got into trouble was taking a turn a little too tight in key west when the boat spun and rolled, in flat water no less. We spent a lot of time getting the boat dialed in with one of the best in the business, your results may vary.
