Default Skater boating, Pelican Bay/Boca Grande Pass, SW FLorida.

Earlier today we put the Skater 308, in the water at me lift in the Myakka River. We went out the river, South through Charlotte Harbor, West towards Boca Grande Pass, and the slightly South in the inside of Cayo Costa, anchoring up in 2-3feet of water about half way between Pelican Bay and Boca Grande Pass.

Round Trip was a total of 51.8 miles. We burned 22.9 gallons of 93 octane for a avg MPG of 2.3.

It was crazy hot again today, the water is in the 90s.

Here is a like to the 19 pictures I took.

For best results, view in slide show format, and click on full screen, in the lower right corner

Enjoy!

Could you add a windshield to that boat, or is the deck different than the 30 I have seen with the windshield? I have seen the 30 in the classifieds and was just wondering.

Looks like a great day.
