Default Rode in a cat for the very first time...

Yep, It was my first time...never before have I gone this fast on water !
I didn't catch the speedo but the roost it threw up was incredible.
And it was a Skater...now there is nothing left to look forward to in life other than maybe owning my own.

As you can tell by this pic, it was a serious pleasure boat.

Back4More,

I thought you were gonna call me when you were coming out? Bobby's boat is pretty SWEET huh? He just built it and is already selling it! It could be all YOURS! $297,000!

I hope all is well with the BIG Fountain!

Bobby's boat is BAD ASS 1/4 canopy 32B SKATER. I've been sending him lots of stickres for it. Hopefully we are going to do a graphics job on it soon.

Mark,
100 mph is going to seem slow now. What kind of speed is that boat capable of?

Default Is that a Performance Marine Skater?

I see the Saris logo on the top of the carbs. Did Jason and the guys at Performance in Bolton Landing rig the boat? They do a REALLY good job. Nice boat.
