Others have built 6 hulls and have issues with...?

I do not think it is fair to use percentage comparisons of 200 mph race hulls to all of the Skaters ever made. Only a handful of boats in the world are running those speeds and many of them are Mystics.

When we did our speed run the one thing JT brought up is what is the speed that an MTI can handle before worrying about a delam problem.

I know quite a few Skaters that had major delam problems. Several of them from being in storage.

I would not knock Mystic. They are the first to be building boats to run over 200. I would think any of the other makes would have the same problems if they ran the same speeds.
NICE TRY GINO BUT IF IT AIN'T A SKATER IT'S A JUNKY FAKER
