The article mentions the possibility of challenging the circumnavigation record...excuse my myopic mind but circumnavigating what? I'm used to reading about challenging Lake Havasu on this board and how rough Loto gets.

Circumnavigate the globe. Current powerboat record around the world is 61 days and we plan to use our new Skater to beat that record. As well as many other endurance runs i.e. Miami to New York, San Francisco to LA, New Orleans to St. Louis.

Any chance for Around Long Island? Would love to see some more competition in that run.

Great build, hope it exceeds your expectations!

Did anyone else mistakenly believe this was a Jim Darr thread? I saw "Wagler, Custom, Skater" and thought Wiggler Custom Skater!
