I am pretty sure that was hull number one for the 40 a 1990. It was for sale recently on oso. Last race i saw it in was in michigan at the quake on the lake around 1992-3 with Bob kasier driving it with Jeff Sofer.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, how many pleasure boats vs. race boats go to Dubai? Do people run around in large Skaters for fun over there like we do?

Thanks for any insight

I think they were 354s twin turbo motors . I have a old OPT VHS TAPE of some of the races back then. I could be off, theres just some things I recall back then with boat racingg . LIKE in 1990 D50 won it all at the plymouth mass race it was a white 32 scorpion hull, on the way back to the wet pits we offered them a beer, they laughed and we tossed them a coke or water. that was a great race big swells on the inside of the coarse from the sand bar. we were in 2 footers . its a cool FFvideo. ARTps that fall I bought my 1st hp boat.

Tank....

This was Mini-B in 2003 back when he was just a single starry eyed Cigarette 27 owner!!!!

Now he is Big-B and I am sure shy of T2x has grown up to be a very resourceful "Skaterniac".
