Hi, I have been in negotiations to have a new Platinum built. I have been dealing with the owner Andreas Trost. We agreed on the price. He said Skater was not going to build them any longer. They were setting up a new factory in tennessee and bringing a crew over from Europe to build the boats. I was ready to send a deposit and Andreas asked me to wait a few weeks until the molds were moved. It's been over a month and he dosen't return calls or emails. Thank goodness I didn't send the deposit!!!! (Remember my last deposit? Big Scotty). I don't know whats going on, I am a little frustrated. I was looking forward to getting the boat. Hopefully they are still in the works of setting up, I still want to build the first Poker run Platinum. A lot of time went into planning the set up. I will keep you updated if I hear from them.
Jim Dyke is no longer connected.

I was talking with Platinum for a while. It was going to take 10 months to get the Platinum. I was going to use the MTI until the Platinum was done. That Mystic is beautiful. 50 is a bg boat!!! I'm sure it huge $$$. Do you have any info on them?

Yeah I know a thing or two about the boat. Call me if you want to talk about it. You could also call them directly. John and Chip are very friendly and willing to answer any questions.

For the size boat that it is, it probably one of the best "deals" dollar/foot wise.
