The 30 Skater prototype, was involved in an accident, some time ago. It seems the hit something under the water or the bottom, broke off the skeg part of the ASD, could not steer, impacted another boat, rolled over, and got run over.

One of my trips to Skater I saw the boat being repaired. It is amazing how strong Peter builds them, considering what happened the hull, it survived quite well.

I built an open cockpit/pleasure version with T/300XS, and Jim is building a flat deck, wrap wound wind screen version, with LS7 power.

Here is a picture of my deck, turned upside down and if you look closely in the background, you can see the damaged prototype, in its side, being restored, good as new.

Tons of pictures of mine, from design, construction, lay-up, rigging, delivery, and running, at my website shown below.
