Default Gary's Predator Skater

That was very impressive the way Gary's 43 Skater SS went around a much smaller DCB Green M31 that had 1350HPs twin turbos.......

He was the only boat that could pass it....

And Gary's Skater is awesome in person to look at...!!!

Great Job Gary.!!!!!!!!

Gary's 43 is clearly faster,, but when I saw the Green M31 ahead past steamboat,,, I wasn't sure if Gary had enough lake left to catch the M31... the lake isn't very long past that point,, and deadend's at the springs... So with the M31 being only 31ft w/ the 1350s,, it looked like it might be able to hold Gary off... But i was wrong,, Gary went right around the M31 shortly after the point and never looked back...!! Great job Gary!!!...awesome Skater!

OK PR388, with all of your investigating did you ever find out what Gary's engines are? or are they still top secret?

I still give the M31 all of the credit in the world being a new boat and taking it that fast. They is a big difference in size of boat going 170mph or whatever they were at....

What is the cost delta between the M31 and Garys awesome machine? (estimates)

If you look in the classifieds on OSO, DCB has another green
M31 (LA boat show boat) w/700s, NXTs for 410K.... So the Bad boy, Green M31 w/1350s?.... who know's how much more $$ that costs..... I have no clue on the Skater... But you know they get up in the mills.....

There custom built engines from Larry Peto of Larrys Engine and Marine. Fuel injected and supercharged.
