Default Surface drive & Skater

Does anybody know what brand this Catamaran is ?
They claim its a Skater ,by looking at some lines ,there,s a little Chris craft into it ...
The Surfacedrive system is a work of art ,and definatly developed by a NASA like engineer ,this I have to let Rik At Arneson to have a look at ,maybe something for a new model for heavy offshore racing

Looks like those drives went a little deeper than the surface.

Scary fragile-looking home-made(?) drives and CABLE steering? Frightening. Possible restoration project if you can get past the biological experiments growing in and on it.

But.....WHY???

I like the cable steering. I think it is a great idea. What could possibly go wrong???
The green splatter effect on the seats is TIGHT!!!

Hey Rik....take some notes. That is how a REAL surface drive is built.
