Make sure you make it clear that this boat being built is your personal boat. Also that you are not employed by Predator etc.. Otherwise a great thread ( Like the last one) may get poofed by the moderators

That's correct. I am not an employee of Predator, nor am I a broker of Predator Powerboats.

I respect Arnaldo (owner) a lot and am a big fan of his products...all of them...

Did I mention a 35 foot CC cat in the works?

power options: I/O and Outbds

We can custom build to customer's specification.

Weve been a Skater deal a longgggg time, since 1986, there an awesome boat. Nothing can beat them on a race course. Not everyone can afford a Skater. Like I said bang for the buck, you would love a Predator. More creature comforts.
Two completely different boats.

Again, at this time the factory has no dealerships only because we learned a lot from the Jim Darr incidents (which spanned a total of almost 7 years)

But we need all the help we can get. Fast Fun 2 (J) is an incredible guy. Straight up shooter. And others, you all know who you are. (P) down in FL. These are the folks who collectively has helped us along.

I will be trailering the hull a lot, trying to go to as many Poker Runs as possible. Will be a joint effort between the factory and me. Which is why we opted for the 8'6" beam.

We can still deliver the wide body models for those interested.
Careful how light you make this hull. The one i raced with Dean was a light kilo layup and was un drivable with anything less then two hundred pounds or so in the bow.

Noli-

Are you planning on rigging this boat with 300xs's? What is the planned finish date of this build?

Thanks
Don

I am not yet decided on the power

I like the power and RPM band of the 300X

I also like the fuel savings from 300XS

I also would like to look into Wilson Custom for my lower gear cases

would you know where I can get 300XS cheap?

I would recommend running 300xs's if this is a true promotional boat for Predator. Run them stock first to get a baseline them if you want to modify from there then go for it. For Predator to gain market share they need to prove that this boat will be as fast/ If not faster than the other 30 to 32's on the market. A good goal for this boat would be 105 on stock 300xs's.
