Default A Skater in my price range!

And it was made the same year I was born
Doesn't that make you guys feel old

It isn't in very good condition though.

The stuff that was being used the year I was born were called torpedo boats i.e. PT-109.

Now I'm all about history and legends and knowing what's behind a name or style as part of a heritage in boating but........in comparison, I feel that the boat in these pictures is just plain ugly. I just cant imagine a wicked TAOD paint job and a maxed out weed-whacker hanging off the back. As much as I love the Skater name and their quality/craftsmanship...I just don't like the style.

However...being that price is always a factor in a purchase decision....and if the Skater name is the most important...then of course without a doubt I can understand the nature of wanting to purchase this type of boat.

That being said.....different strokes for different folks!

Good point...if I've got the $$ to put a TAOD paint job on it, I must REALLY like the boat to start with
