Yes that boat is a beast to say the least... Hey I sound like Dr. Suess now.. Anyways glad to hear she's doing well & yeah I would love to see what it would do on a nice body of water in good conditions b/c as Eddie said thats no real place to attempt what that boat is capable of !!

Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments. It has really been a fun project. However, I'm glad it's over.
It really was an unbelievable amount of work to get it where it is. I'm very proud of the way it turned out.

The boat is currently running a 1.35 gear and a Herring 17 X 41 5 blade cleaver.

Thanks, Eddie.

With those 41's it would make a good wakeboard boat just knocked in gear.. Proof that a Skater can still be practical..

However so much for the no wake zones..

That thing destroys no wake zones. You have to just bump one of them in and out of gear. Even with one in gear it throws a monster wake. With both in gear it will run over 10 mph.
