The 46 Skater is for sale. He has another piston powered race boat. But they always seem to have something in the works. I wouldn't be surprised to see something awesome and different at the begining of next season.

You're absolutely correct. The only boat that is for sale at this time is the 46' Skater. We will start the season off with our 44' MTI piston powered boat. The turbine project is coming along quite nicely. Just finished making changes to the boat and will resume testing around March 1. Here is a picture of both boats at the Shootout last year.

I would assume since eveyone was so quick to point out how the fins on the MTI Batboat were going to destroy the handling, the Bud boat will have it's fins clipped???
