I have had all three and would get another 36 in a second.

Look at who is winning in SC Lite. If there were rough water races the skaters would be taking there share of the victories.

I can remember the first MTI, it delaminated at every rough water race.

Look who wins Key West.

if you look at supercat, MTI is nearly dominant... look at the teams who have switched in the last two years to MTI... i doubt they would do that because they want a lesser boat...

and as far as key west goes, there is only 2 boats racing SCL right now, so you got a 50/50 chance of being right, the real cats will be in St Pete that weekend....

Of course Mercury racing won't allow that !

They would rather sacrifice ALL racing , as we know it ,just to keep they're High $$$$ motors in production with no competition .

The day's of Mercury racing controlling ,and holding down progress in ANY offshore application are coming to a close.

They (merc) build an excellant product , So also do many other's . Let the other's back in and the price for a superior motor package will decrease . Along with greater innovation.
or just come race OSS....

The 40 Skater is the Offshore Machine.

i think pro marine won some races with sterling power last year... and reliable won orange beach this year (yes they were dq'd) popeyes/whm/pro marine have 4 seconds between them this year with sterlings.... (CRC has pretty much dominated SC in OSS... and i don't think it is the motor, but the hull and drivers and the same for bacardi...)

That's pretty funny big guy, You think they won some races, Like a national championship. It's really pretty funny, super cat is dominated by MTI and they just set another record and people are wondering which one is the boat to buy. Well not you and I anyway.
