The Skater that fell back is AJ's old 36 all different colors and fades which has 1100s or something like that. That 32 was for sale recently and I think has 850s in the ad. I dont t think that EVO was beating both of these boats. The kid driving the EVO can think happy thoughts because both Skaters run. Also Predator pulled in the video behind him and that boat is exceptionally fast.

Sure on a lake that skater would run away from a twin 700 39 evo like it was chained to a house- But they werent on a lake.

I posted this so the guy asking the original question could get a sense of how the 32 runs in the ocean.

Yeah it didnt look that big now did it? but it was just enough for a much slower boat spotting the skater some 800 ponies to run side by side with it.

Speed is like accuracy in shooting, its not what you can do, its what can you do RIGHT NOW under these conditions.

The 17 year old is Chris Camire JR. at 17 he's got more seat time than most of us did at 30.

That 36 Skater will walk away from that Lavey in any water if you run the boat how its made to be run! There's plenty of boats in that vid that are faster than the Lavey in any water, Skater and Outerlimits. Not everyone has to run WFO on a poker run. To say that that boat runs better than a Skater is taking it a little far.

Did you actually read what I wrote?

Maybe the driver cant drive his 500K boat. Its a possibility maybe we can get his take on it.

You can tell him he cant "run the boat the way it was mean to be run!"

If you run that skater to its potential it will run cirles around the Lavey. Maybe the owner didnt fee llike running the boat hard.

Not in that water it wont.

Thats what the owner of it told both Chris JR and Senior. Feel free to take it up wit those three- they are quite open and honest about it.

They were all the same poker run stops.

10 feet of boat length makes a huge difference in any kind of real water,as the situation demonstrates.

I think the biggest variable (even beyond driver skill) is the real "wave height" the boat is running in. I always love the stories of people on here running in 8 footers....at 70mph in a 25' boat on an inland lake. There is a huge difference between ocean waves, Long Island sound waves, Lake Michigan waves, and the frequency that you encounter the crests and troughs....and then of course once everyone is out in some rough stuff, the waves always seem to grow by about 4'...
That being said, someone that knows how to run that Skater will smoke that Lavey anytime.
