Keep in mind with the ethanol fuel, you might have fuel issues with the skaters. not 100% sure though.

Any hull laid up 2005 and before needs to have the tanks redone.

In rough water, the 36 is the way to go.

Whats the difference between pre 2006 Skaters & post?? I've heard of some newer Skaters having their tanks done. My boat is at Skater now so I had them inspected just to be sure. Don't want to hijack but curious.

Talk to Pete to be sure, but my understanding is that they changed the tank coating material so as to be ethanol resistant in boats laid up in mid 2005 and beyond
