Cri331 Charlie has his boat dialed in perfect he ran with stock 2.5's 120.7mph on gps I myself would
recomend tabs on the boat
Keith Eckerit makes a great pair also the ballast does wonders Charlie and I ran 100-105 thru 2-3
Footers on sundayin my boat

So funny you said Keith Eckerit tabs those are the one's he order for the boat yesterday the boat should run great with them thru 2-3. You ever run your boat in the ocean from fire island inlet to Moriches inlet that's a nice ride.
You think i will get 115 out of the boat?

Default Skater 28 to Norway


At last. I will receive a bare hull Skater 28 in a 6 weeks time. It has to be rerigged completely and painted as well. The boat has been used to break in engines in Dubai (Victory Team). The hull is just fine, but it has to be cleaned up.

I have got hold of Latham Steering, but need new high bucket seats, sidepanels, backseats, Gaffrig trottles, Gaffrig / Autometer instruments, batteries / electrical, manual CMC lifts, etc.

The boat will be rigged with Merc 2.5 Offshore Race engines.

I am looking for new style Douglas Marine high bucket seats, sidepanels and back seats. Anyone of you out there with some clues? I have contacted Douglas Marine, but no answer.

I will post some pictures when it arrives...

Cheers and thanks, Toffen G - Norway
