Well there isn't very much going on at all with west coast companies... Not many people over here are buying $400,000+ boats.... Yes DCB has sold a few but a vast majority of them leave the country...
Well if it ever does go over there I hope you get a chance to ride in and drive it.
And thank you for the compliment on the 28 evo. It looks cool and runs great!

Not to be a jackhole but Douglas Marine Skater sold 30+
Glad someone is selling something might as well be Peter.

You mean douglas marine the dealer (used and new) or Skater factory built 30 new boats?

West Coast is Dead as Jr says. Very little market for stuff up over 250K these days out here.

I have a couple drinks and put the pedal to the metal. Nobody's got more kajons than me. Check me out in this vid.

We fixed it with some fiberglass from home depot and raced again the next day.

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.

I think everyone knows what would happen WFO, my comment was based on what I saw, it didn't appear that rough to the video eye but I'm sure it was and I wasn't there. It looked as if the Skater pulled away hard and then dropped back... I like the EVO and he's a lucky kid to be able to have the chance to get that type of experience. He seems level headed in his comments, good for him.

I thought the thread was about being comfortable? I know on Lake Erie, if the waves are 5 to 6 the C.G. issues a small craft advisory...and they mean it. I have noticed on the ocean 5 and 6s are more swells than waves, and can be pushed with speed. On our little puddle they are more like 5 and 6ft brick walls that are close together, especially between the islands. I know when I @#&k up and wait too look to make the run home and the lake is worked up...I am usually the only dummy out there..and I am going slow caus they hurt. just sayin..
