Default 40 Skater ID ???

I am trying to find some old race shots of my Skater 1992
it is unique in the fact that it had four seats and engine hatches that had 3 hinges on each side of the hatch, opening the engine compartment more than any other Skater I have seen.
The title work supports most of this this.
Stuart had it built and raced 1992 than raced under other names ??Cat in the Act II is on the title Anthony Izzo and
Then Art Girard / Sloppy Joes ?
Big Thunder as big Thunder? ( just a thought )
then Martin Marine of Broward.
So 4 seater with f 16 and 3 hinges on each hatch on the side of the boat 6 inches down the side.

Thinking of some redo and paint options retro race ???
Thanks in advance
Jim

Did you ever talk to Mike B.? He was the one that bought the boat as a race boat and redid it.

That's the one that came from overseas and was bought in jersey about 4 years back right? If so I know the Jersey owner well. I can ask if he has any.

I dont think this is the one you are talking about
this 40 has been in the states according to the paper trail.
I think I know what one you are talking about.
Thanks Jim

Sorry, didn't realize the history you already had. The boat I'm talking about was sold to a guy in Arizona then I think made its way to LOTO. Completely redone. May have been a 90. I think the owners name is also Jim. Sorry I couldn't help.

Bob Morgan had it as Cat in the Act in 1996 and the first part of 1997. Raced it once in Key West and lake mead. He has a picture of it on his wall in Florida before it was painted but can't post. He bought it from Art and then sold it to Tres Martens dad when he was a boat dealer. Shortly after that it was in texas and I think that guy gave it the paint job it has now. Had 4 seats when Bob had it. That all I know about the boat.
