Default Well now i know what the hype is about(1st skater ride)

Took my first ride in a 28 skater today. Wow!! I guess thats why people say that once you get in cat, you will never go back to anything else. the boat seemed to glide over waves and easiy got into the 90s before we had to slow down. What a rush. Now its time to start saving up. Thanks t2x for hooking me up with the ride.

It really didn't matter either way. Chris still has bragging rights that he was in a Skater running over 90+.
And trusted me (a vee bottom guy) to drive him....
I only wish that the river could have been longer...It just goes by so fast.....

Cowisl and sharkey and the owner of the 28/Chris,

What a ride it was, this being my first ride in a 28. Needless to say I am SOLD on the 28. Just need to keep saving a little bit more before I make the purchace.

Sharkey,
You did an excellent job driving!!!!

Thanks Dennis! I guess it wasn't too bad for a guy that is used to driving a 13 foot vee bottom....

Last time I was in a Skater three weeks ago we went 105 and that thing was powered by Pepsi cans so I know those things can make the most of power!
