Default 32 Skater questions

Is the 32 a handfull in rough water compared to the 36?? I have a buddy looking at a 2001 32 with #6's and Sterling 850's and I dont know the answers. I am told the top end of the boat is 150mph, does that sound right?? Come on you Skater guys gimme some input ..... are these good safe boats??

Is it a 32 classic or 32 B bothh are great boats but at 150 both are a handfull. Neither would compare to a 36 in "big" seas.

It is listed as a race/pleasure, doesnt have 1/4 canopies just the screen. It is at Lake Cumberland Marine. Here are a few pics.... If you were to take a guess what speed do you think she runs????

The drive turning in won't make it handle any better. I'm sure it's plenty fast.

I think quite a few people were impressed with "Junkman" this weekend at the Grand Slam Run. You wouldnt expect that boat to handle the water like it does. It is a 32 open cockpit with 1100's and sixes.

I have a new 368 and it handles the water great, been in a 32 with the 850's before i built my 36 . 32 ran 138.

140 is realistic for the 32 with that power, Safely in those waaves you can run about 80-90 safely. The 36 will span a constant waave pattern like in the ocean better, but in rough chop you wont see much difference. Ran with a 36 and 40 skater in Chicago poker run, we were saafely running 90-100 in 4-5' but that is all we wanted of it. Use your common sense in that kind of water you can hook a sponson so fast if you dont know how to approach waves of that size.
