From what ive seen, compared to the 2 skaters that we have(36 and 40) i would say that it is well worth what they are asking. FYI, Peter also has a 36 skater trailer in good shape for 7900.00

It's definatley worth that price with #6 drives that would be a very reliable package.

"2000 Skater Pleasure, 36' ,Open Cockpit with air conditioned cabin, Merc 800+ Class 1 dry sump motors, 18 hrs, detuned, for pump gas, Merc #6 drives, Huber transmissions Stelling headers, 130 MPH at Lake X"

Beautiful boat and I am sure it is well worth the price. My question is about the motors, are these the same set up as Super Cat? If so, how long will they last under pleasure conditions?

Super cats in APBA do not have superchargers. Those are roughly 700-750 hp. In any race a few boats will break down. Reliable? I have this philosphy on cutting edge performance boats, they will break....Pleasure use can see as high as 250 hours on a well setup motor. Hope for the best and expect the worst. Regarding that Skater, the drives alone are $35k new each. Motors $40-50k new each. Engines, drives, steering, hull, rigging, transmissions, etc your at $400-500k in total new. That price is very good for that cat.

Thanks for your reply. I still do not see a supercharger on this engine.

Look at this 36' Skater, allot less hardware for more money.
Maybe this will help answer your question.

Sorry, I did not look at that all the pictures. I assumed anything with 800hp is blown. Or did I read the ad wrong? I thought it said 800. I do not think Merc made anything over 500hp naturally aspirated. In that case the engines are a lot less money.
