Man it sounds RAW.


It's going to be FAST!! I can't wait to see how much more speed is gained from when it was a 1075 boat with no dial in time. 150 doesn't seem too out of reach if you can stay in it...

Thanks for the compliments everyone. Here is my post from the other thread about the Skater.

Finally put the boat in the water today and all I can say is WOW. Absolutely retarded fast. I never did ring it out. This was just a shakedown run to see what was gonna fall off, leak, break, etc. I'm happy to say that none of those things happened. We ran it for about an hour and only sqeezed on it a little one time. The boat was like it was shot out of a cannon. I ran it up to 125 mph in just a few seconds. That was turning 5300 rpm at 55% throttle(had the laptop on the floor next to me) It was getting dark and I need to get use to the boat. I need to get the trim set right since it is very sensitive to very minor changes. The boat started leaning a little a speed, but I think I had the drives tucked a little to much. Just before that, the boat hopped a little because I had them to high. I think I over compensated to much.
Need to check the drive trim height, replace a boost gauge and a few other minor things. The weather will be in the 60's-70's all week so I will take it out a few more times.
Thunderusone has a few pics so maybe he will post them. I will get some video this week. There was to much going on today to video.
I need to stand on it to see if the props are going to be big enough. I don't think they are. Currently have 16 1/2 X 39" Herings. I'll keep ya'll posted.
