I think that you should tour both plants to see how they are built. I have never been through the MTI plant but this spring I did tour the Skater boat building facility and it is the best that I`ve seen so far.

I thought the latest Barcardi was an MTI.

Dave Scott has a 36 Skater, 46 Skater, and a 42 MTI. He is building another MTI that will be the fastest of all.

Either boat is phenominal. Getting back to the question asked I would get the 40 Skater over the 39 MTI. A 42 sit down or 44 MTI would be a better comparison.

I`ve been working on it regularly but it`s still progressing slowly. I`ve got the cabin looking pretty good now but have the cockpit and engine compartment pretty well stripped down. I have the floor out to have a look at the tanks and to clean up the wiring a little. I don`t have a digital camera and the last disc that I had made is difficult to lift images off of but I`ll give it another try.
