There is a 36 Skater with #6 Drives and 500's in the classifieds. This boat will run 115 all day every day and won't let you down. The motors are stock sealed 500s so if you pepped em up alittle you get up in the speeds, but at 115 you are going to smoke 90% of the boats out there. It is within your budget.

Make sure that any cat you buy has canopies, it will make owning it a lot more fun.

baja daddy: A 36' Skater with twin 1000s should run 150 mph. If I were you, I would increase my budget and go with the Skater. In fact, that is exactly what I did & I couldn't be happier. Interest rates are low, just make the payment. I would also advise you not to get the pleasure deck, you will definitely want canopies.

Hi Mike: Even though the weather was not great, Jim & I boated Sat & Sun. Maybe we'll see you Canal Day.

For those of you that have not had a chance to see Jean and Jim's 36 Skater, it is the shiznit!! I had the pleasure of watching them blow by me many times on a Poker Run last year, happily trotting along at 130+.

I'm thinkin' 150 for sure. I rode in a 36' canopied Skater last week. It only had 600's and we hit 128 gps on average water here on Lake Lanier. I could've been doin' a crossword puzzle at 125 it was so smoothe.

If I wanted a boat with no use except speed, I would not look anywhere but at Skater. Of course I'd have to live in it and have no car, girlfriend or food.

I'll bet mid 140's if everything is setup properly.
