Default Skater Maiden Voyage....

1st off, I LOVE our Skater, what a beast of a boat, and man was it a blast! Only ran her up to 95MPH, just getting the feel for her. Arneson rocker plates are interesting, still trying different settings to see how it affects the ride. I stopped after every run and opened the engine hatches and checked for any issues. Only thing I've found wrong is the port bilge pump is running intermittently, so I've got to check that out. Going back out to today, going to put the GoPro on her and get some video...

Yes post some vids when able. Looks great! Is that the boat you hauled to FL recently? One hick up with a bilge pump pretty damm good. Be safe.
