Different, in an ugly kind of way.

Especially the dash.

Skaters are awesome. That boat is not. Looks like something out of a 1980 James Bond film.

I think it looks great. I love the graphics and the Nu Tique floors, not so much the dash though. For some reason i dont care for the burly wood but overall its a sweet rig.

The cockpit has a very high end look, like a Bentley or a Benz. I'm not fond of those "wings" either, but someone drew them up and the owner liked them and that's what counts.

This boat may be called a 40 but if the bustle is included in the length it's really a 36 or a 368.

No it's a 40SS and if you count the lenght of the bustle the overall length is 44+ feet.

Here's the specs from Skater showing the length of a 40SS with no bustle.

That is an awesome boat.....is it going to northern California? Personally.....I would have gone with a solid-colored paint job. Does the trailer have a solid-bottom?

It's a tilt trailer so it kinda has a solid floor, I heard it's going to Desert Storm and then to N. CA.
