Default 79 Skater 18

I have one on Lake of the Woods, Canada with a 200GT Johnson that runs around 70. Needs a merc! It will do over 90 mph with the right V6 on the back. Tunnel with center pod, and a step at the back of the hull.

My first boat back in the day. Just seeing this thread brings back some memories. Ran that little 18 across Erie to PIB a couple of times when we were kids, ran her hard all the time and never let me down. Eventually got to run a couple of different 46' skaters that a buddy had and had the opportunity to meet peter at the factory a couple of times ,super guy. From those little 18' boats to todays boats..........what a journey for Skater!!

Not fast.

If you are looking for a fast 18 foot tunnel, find an STV, Mirage, or Triad. Talons run good, but not as good as the earlier mentioned. Or go with an Allison and outrun or run with any of them.

This conversation came up on the S&F message board a while back, there was some decent knowledge of the boat over there.
+2

As well, the Cougar & Eliminator 19', and they are fantastic looking.And 2nd fastest V, alternative to the Allison would the a Hydrostream V King
