Great rig, love SKaters (who doesn't?) - and what looks like a great time and destination.

I love Floridas getaways.
In southern California we have a couple, but they pale in comparison to the exotic places you guys have.

Certainly no beaches like you show, but a good coast and a few islands.

Your mileage caught my eye. I get almost the exact same MPG in a radically different setup.

Ive got a 28 ft v with an Ilmor 710, and I routinely get between 2.1 and 2.4 and have gotten 2.6 on a long trip going super ez

Thanks for posting!

Ilmor is a great package.

Courious, what kind of speeds you get?

In the config in the picts- 90
Its weighing in at about 5500LB with fuel- loaded this thing with everything you can imagine

Its heavy its got 20 Led lights,2x odyssey 2150's, 2 Screens and air con/heater in it plush interior.....

Strip of the arch and pull all the stuff out low 90's

Same hull does 105+ in race mode pretty good for a v, but way off what that skaters going to run

the aluminum ilmor saved me 200lb so it still performs best in class for the HP it has.

Heres the canopied race version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apWZkv_f4bc

I remember seeing one race on a regular basis, in very recent years. Nice package, especially with the Ilmor.
