It would be interesting to know roughly how much money was saved rigging it himself. For the right people, could almost make a new boat “affordable”

Not only is Steve a multi-talented guy, he's also one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. I happened to be back at the factory when Steve was visiting his new boat before it left Skater and we discussed many aspects of his project. It's going to be the perfect rig for his intended use - lots of hours of use on the BIG waters of Lake Michigan. The new king of rough water outboard cats has just been born...........

Wasn't there a triple 450R 38 in the works for a Havsu customer that pasted away? Did that become this boat or is it still waiting for a new buyer?

DAYUM that thing is pretty! Love the colors and the design. Dig the black cradle over white trailer too. The whole thing flows so nicely. Fantastic.

The King of outboard cats was born two years ago, my old 368 with 450's and C-Zone and all the same stuff and much more with 8 year extended warrantys and I saw it for sale just the other day and its a carbon boat. The new outboard boats are epoxy. Mine was a carbon boat that had never had the transom drilled.

The 68 boats are slightly slower than the competitors but they handle the big stuff very well and they are very forgiving and it would be almost impossible to put one over, you would have to try really hard!!
