My heart is with the Indian, but good luck!

On this subject... that would be an awesome match-up to see. Wow. Two boats heading out into the rough to lay down the law and have some fun. Like waiting for a big set at Mavericks.

I think it will eventually happen. 6' to 8' waves can tell you a lot about a powerboat's sea keeping ability. Smaller water just can't do that.

Default Change Thread Name = Skater Vs Apache????????


So the Mti's went away and a Awesome Apache has stepped up ?(or was pushed in ) Wasn't there a video that ended with where are the Skaters?
We grew up on Lake Michigan and here at Loto it gets kinda boring we have chop but nothing like Michigan 4 to 6 and we have been out when the ole lake Michigan wind changes up and 7-14 coming over the bow!!! Thats Fun

Let me know when the showdown goes with the 6 - 8' s We will have to wait out mother nature until she kicks it up? Id love to do it, if our 40 is finished!!! Lil shorter than Kemosabe but that's my life lil short

A ROUGH DAY ON THE WATER IS BETTER THAT FIRST PLACE ON ASPHALT
All in good fun

My Skaters 15 years old and if it could tell stories it would be real interesting. Lot of 4s, 5s, 6, 7, 8, 9,10s and 12, most recently on the way to Freeport!! Poor thing get bashed hard every time I take it out!! JT used to bash it as a race boat Zero Defect then Bob Morgan and I Bashed it as a race boat Big Thunder and now its a poker run boat Freedom US1!! Hard to believe it still floats!! Maybe all of us Poker run boat guys can get together in Key West for a four lap race at the worlds like the Bimini race. Just for fun of course!!
