I thought Ron's full canopy Skater with Arnesons is a 368 - originally built for Dereberry. I know JT was helping set the boat up, so I figured he would be there running the boat. Anyway, my point about that post is that I've seen pictures of the motors in that rig - big PSIs w/ injector hats on them. I know those motors have to be making north of 2,000hp (hell, my little 468 w/ 12-71 blower in my hydro is making around 1,500hp), they've got a full canopy boat with a bustle/rudder/ASDs (all aerodynamically and hydrodynamically superior to a standard quarter-canopied open-cockpit boat) and they still didn't go as fast as Garth and Jim yesterday. What Garth and Jim did yesterday is really awesome!

You cannot accomplish that without a lot of knowledge, patience and $$$. Congratulations to them for representing Skater Nation!!!!!

Also let's not forget Skater brother Tom Kennedy at 120mph intitial run in his new 28 at 120mph either!
Agreed Ron..........awesome job by both teams! They've represented Skater well - both with boats designed by Pete way back in the '90s...........

The 36 classic's are no Joke. Give the Flight Club boat the same amount of time to dial in as Garth has had and it will be a rocket.

Look at Nor'easter. Not a shootout boat and ran 177 a few years ago with 1500-1600Hp.

Parveys went 145 mph last year. They just laid down a 159 mph. NOT a typo...... 159 MPH. That is 6 mph faster than their closest competitor. A beautiful Outerlimits I think?
