I think they were talking about JAWS 46 Skater with the bad water pump.

I dont know what the commition is all about, I'd have to see another picture, but from that one shes had way too much work done for my taste, way too fake. If that makes you happy go for it man

He was holdin on for himself. I don't think any of them expected to be thrown around the boat like they were. I knew what to expect, and before I had to hold her in, I was holding on with one hand, and taking pics with the other. That's why I only have so few running shots to show. I've been doing this for over 20 years out here, and the rough water does'nt take me by surprise anymore.

My wife backed out at the last minute while we were untieing the boats, and I had noone else to ride with. So, rather than running solo, My buddie with the 46 told me to jump on with them. At least that way, I got to take some running shots, and saved 150 gals of Sunoco 110. Not my first choice tho.
Anytime you and Carrie want to join us on the pond, we've always got a couple Cigs and a few Fountains to run with. Just give me a call, you got an open invitation any weekend.

Frank & Lois

We looked at it sunday morning while on the trailer.The SKATER had no chaulk or glue on it and was done by COMPETITION MARINE ,it is being repaired and taken care of by PETER AT SKATER
Bill, glad to see it go to Skater for repairs and maybe updates in design.

Hey neighbor! Glad to see you are gettin' the boat straighted out...hope she comes back better than ever. If you ever get the itch to run around on a smaller, slower, but redder boat, let me know!

Sorry I couldn't offer more assistance on Saturday, about the time your son was on the bow looking for the damage we had drifted away, and I had pulled the kill switch and couldn't figure out why the boat wouldn't start again! By then Louie and Tom were there, and I figured Tom would know better than I what to do and that you'd be in good hands. Thank god that ramp at Burnham was 11'8"!
