TAOD did not paint the boat. Rick Joy painted it in Florida. Other than that it looks like a nice piece.

I know the boat very well and have been out in her many many times.
Gary the original and only owner docks her directly across from our Bay house most every weekend during the Summer.
The boat is immaculate has fresh SC 900s and very low and easy hrs,she tested from Skater running in the low 140s and has not been past 130mph since.
This is one well maintained and conservitivly run cat.
I cant believe it hasn't sold yet as this boat and trailer still look brand new, beautiful rig.

I know this boat. Gary Bicker of NJ is the original owner and has driven it very
conservatively. It has been well maintained. Like most 36 Skaters with 1/4 canopies, it
has no cabin.

The 900 SC motors were modified by Professional Marine Racing of Brick NJ. They
made some changes to the oiling. I do not remember exactly when this was done, it
might have been after we lost Doug.

It has been for sale for a long time, and the price has been coming down. Seems very well priced now.

Big motors, big exhaust, dry #6s. It is a lot of boat, for the money! I think maybe the 900
SC package is holding it back.
