They were a little boxy. Skater still has the molds. When I was there a couple of years ago they were laying one up for a "special" customer. I'd hate to ask what separates a standard customer from a special one.

I'd hate to ask what "unforseen difficults" would be. Core rot? Also that yellow looks a bit splotchy. If the boat is solid, the price is a good one though.

I actually have my eye on one I saw under a shed out in the country here.

I've been meaning to stop and see if the guy wants to part with it. I haven't seen it move in 10 years. Winter's on it's way and I don't have a prioject.

In the auction he says, "This is similar to an Eliminator or Hydrostream."

Where do people come up with this stuff?
