Cool Fyi

Zuperman 50' skater this maybe the TAM boat?
man of steel a 50' OL with bines (BZ's current ride)
recovery is or was the 50" flight club"

pretty hard to mix up the skater and the OL
one is open cockpit fixed #6's and rudder
other closed cockpit with BPM shaft/rudder

RHR
the holes maybe to fill vac. in the stern area at speed makes for more speed or so i was told by a builder & merc-racing guy at an open house... I went to

but who knows

There is a Skater 50 with those aeration tubes on the side at TNT these days saw it last weekend when I took DOI for a ride to Gilberts.


The story I was told for the aeration tubes on the side is that it helped keep the boat clean under the bussle with less load up grime.

Default could be

GLH you could be right,
don't know

I was told the the "new trend" is to streem air into the stern area to release the vacum or negitive pressure as it keeps the hull glued to the water... but this was a V they had as an example... looks too be same configureation...
if right it would save me two hours of cleaning for sure :0

sk
