If your friend gets Bravos, the deck will have to be 12-14" taller in the rear than the one I built. Will change the look of the boat.
What a perfect setup for this Skater. Many hours can be logged on the boat. Almost bullet proof with the setup.

Well you will have to be drunk, have your own "MOHO" and ride through the metal stakes in the ground without donating a chunk of your skin to the stakes.

You will get the award for the wheelie!

That is really a cool boat. I hope we will see a race version in Super Stock next season.

Hey Rik, the PBM article was very good. I was laughing to myself about one little line in the article. You'll see what I'm talking about when you read it.

I havent put the footage on disk yet but still have Dales address and want to get it out to him. After I send it to him I'll try to get it up on putfile to host it so everyone can see it. It's AWESOME footage, as you know.

Oh, and I don't think theres any doubt about it, that thing is SICK! The mags don't due it justice though. WAAAAY better in person.

Get dale to drag that f*cker out to Havasu for the Spring heatwave poker run. Already talk of some big players coming out for it when we were in Key West.

Rik, that 30 is flat silly. It by far is the best looking flat deck to date. Your choice of design, colors and power train, you and Skater should pat yourself on the back. It shows why Skater is a year out, and they can name there price. Your boat rattled me so much I had Scott Conrad start to work me a price. With 75k worth of aluminum Donovan dry sump aspirated 540 cubic" motors from my engine builder, hook to bravo style drives, rigged on a trailer was about 380K. Does this sound right on price?

Maybe Im old school, how does the foot throttle work in rough seas ?

I notice alot of those on west coast boats, is it mainly for lake boats ?

What's not to like? [well, maybe the price for us regular folk]

I don't care what Powerboat publishes as the list price. It's well known that no one pays those prices. Yes, Skaters are expensive. But so is a Rolex, a Bently or a Picasso. I don't admire them any less.

Beautiful boat!!!!

The foot throttle is easy to drive even in the rough as it is a dead pedal to brace yourself against also.

I mean even a new 32 skater with like 525's and arnesons gotta be more reasonably priced then that 30 no ?
Like i said,,,its DEAD GORGEOUS
