Yep we lost the seat on Kool Aids Cig on friday for the test run but thats becuase he used the wrong screws and was holding on while I was skipping from wave to wave having some fun. And yes we popped the rub rail on both side which worries me a lil but I know where to take it if its an issue. We didn't blow a motor this time out and its still going, better for the rest of the year.

Found more damage on the 46 Cig last night. After I replaced the 3 screws from the panel in the cabin, I opened the engine hatch to give evrything a once over. I found the piece of SS trim that goes around the drip ledge in the bilge had lost a screw. Luckily, I have some 1/2" long #4 screws and replaced it. Oh , and each dry sump oil tank for the engines were about a half a qt. low too. Damn maintenance !!!

Brandon, your Skater looked like it was "glued" to the water. Well, at least for the first minute that is. LMAO
