Yes this is the NEW 39' Skater V-bottom from Douglas Marine. The first one from Skater. The boat has Skater's FIVE-STEP Bottom and is currently being rigged for the APBA Super V Lite Twin Class.
This boat boat is owned by Patrick Patel and Paul Whittier will be racing with him. They will be making their debut with the new boat at the APBA Worlds in Keywest this November. Peter Hledin is very excited to have two racers like Pat and Paul running this new design as they are both hardcore racers and push it to the limit everytime they race.
I Myself(Dennis Tracey) will be the Crew Chief for the team and have been informed to post this thread by the owner of the boat. Who wanted the information clearly stated if it was to be posted. Not inaccurately posted like some have started to do already and how people always do on this board. I was also informed if there is any hard feelings on this post that the can be taken up by reaching the owner of the boat, Patrick Patel at his office.
Thank You and Have a Nice Day!!!!!!!!
