Default Boatermouth ??????

In Boatermouth they mention Jim Darrs 186 mph SKATER , is this the same Skater he has 4 sale with the wrap-around windshield & home made bustle ????


http://boatermouth.com/matt-trulio/2...props-and-more



Best Moment of the Day: David Scott and John Tomlinson run 208 mph in Nauti-Marine, Scott's 50-foot-long Mystic catamaran with twin 2,000-hp engines. That's one mile an hour off the Top Gun record of the 30-year-old Shootout, and a new record for the new venue near Captain Ron's. "With another half mile, we'd have been at 230 mph," said Tomlinson. "The engines never stopped making power." The question is: Will they run again tomorrow? The engines reportedly have one run left in them before they require a tear-down. Plus, Scott and Tomlinson are pretty satisfied with their effort so far. They remain undecided at this point.




•Second coolest moment of the day: Jim Darr runs 186 mph in his Skater catamaran, making him the man most likely to collect $10,000 from Skater principal Peter Hledin. If Darr reaches 190 mph tomorrow, the prize goes up to $20,000.




•Coolest nearby event: OK, so Skaterfest really isn't that nearby. Lake of the Ozarks is one of those classic "You can't get there from here" kind of places, which makes the 15-mile drive to the Camden on the Lake Resort, where Skaterfest is being held, a 30-minute trek from Captain Ron's. But with almost 40 boats and their owners, families and friends, and folks like Hledin, Mike D'Anniballe of Sterling Performance and Dean Loucks of The Art of Design on hand to celebrate the Skater catamaran brand, this Midwest version of Skaterfest is far and away the best to date. "This venue is just tremendous," Hledin, who was on his way to a boat ride to the Shootout (Peter Hledin on a boat ride?), told me this morning. Look for a more in-depth story in the next issue of Powerboat magazine.

I honestly don't know. Why not contact the seller? I'd go there first.

I think the radio called it wrong during the run because it was Chip Romer's boat that hit the mark.

Well, B.S. is a little strong ... I wasn't trying to fool anyone ... but it was a factual screw-up that did not make it into the Powerboat magazine article I wrote on the event.

Reporting in real time has its challenges, fact-checking being the biggest one. No excuses, though, my screw-up.

Glad you set helped the online record straight.
