Kirk , I dunno last time I talked to him he said he wanted you and I to race the boat, but it sounds like he changed his mind or found someone the could put up some money or more work than I can.

The rules have always been the same. Any boat can go and race in the worlds. However, you can't be world Champion since if you don't have at least two or three starts during the season.

Pat had problems with the V12s so Sterlings are in the big cat.

I believe the Skater is 39. Remember, Skater has built a bunch of V hulls for Fountain. You can tell by the lack of a pronounced beak.

Wow...That's a beauty.

So, what's the beam on that boat? Maybe it's just the angle of the pic, but it looks a little girthy.

Sharkey,
The boat you heard wax not this one. This one is still at the Douglas Marine plant and from there will be shipped to Lake X for testing and dialing in and then to the Worlds. I myself will actually not even get to see it close-up til I arrive in Keywest for the Worlds.
I know there is someone rigging a new F2 boat for the SBI Worlds. It is the first of the new BadBoy Powerboats. Might have been them or maybe a boat that Smitty might have been getting ready for the SBI Worlds also.

We have an order in now for the first "Pleasure Version" Scot is at Skater this week checking in on a few other boats we have ordered. Considering the Quality we have seen in Skaters Cats, we are very excited to see this V-Hull

The boat is incredible and so is the shop. One of the largest, cleanest and best run in the world.
