I have to agree with Yahoo, you need to compare the MTI to the 36 Skater. In rough water there wasn't a single cat that could stay with our 36, except for Yahoo in his 36 [/QUOTE]

But were there any MTI's running against you.

At 200MPH there is not that much competion. At 160mph there tends to be more. . JK I know MTI will get there. They have accomplished much in a short period of time.

Why is it that more and more previous Skater owners are switching to MTI? Look at David Scott and JT for example. Their new turbine boat is a MTI.

May not be the fastest, but a fun boat.

Very interesting post! I just wonder if Brad feels that his original question has been answered? How about a comment Brad - what do you think now?
