I thought I heard that Skater was laying up the boat for Jim Dyke?

I know that Jim has put the boat through its paces with a wide variety of tests and set-ups to find out the limits of the boat.
I do not have any info on performance though. Jim is out testing so I cannot get an answer yet.
I'll find out.

Our end has been ok.

Be careful I might put a lefthand thread on there to keep you going for a while Thad promised material tomorrow.
Tank might be down here this weekend we will see.

When I spoke to Jim last summer he had run the v-bottom with a set of HP500s and said the boat ran really well in Lake Erie in some choppy water and that he was impressed. Don't know the actual performance numbers nor what they might have tweaked and changed by now.
