Default All Gain And No Pain In Skater 36 ROS Swap Out For Verado 400Rs

Originally set up with Mercury Racing ROS outboard engines, this 36-foot Skater has been repowered by Grantís Signature Racing with Verado 400R mills, https://speedonthewater.com/boat-res...r-verado-400rs.

I agree. In fact, it's my favorite Skater built in recent years.

wish the ROS woulda been made street... but if all things are equal sounded like more a problem of rigging and mid than actual engines so personally i say they gave up to soon..

ROS and 400R use the exact same powerhead. So why were the ROS motors problematic? Oh, it IS a beautiful boat!
