Lightbulb Skater.....nothing Comes Close!!!

Was there today and all I can say is WOW! Pete and his crew will build it any way you want it. It is amazing to se a 36' boat cut in half to be widened. I saw the Seabold composite F1 boats being built. The Platinum molds were full of glass and in production along with all the rest of the molds. There is a 399 V bottom in the mold and another done on the floor thats looks sweet with the pleasure deck. the spiderman boat was hanging from the ceiling getting the bottom dialed in for next weeks Milwaukee race. Patels 46 is almost done for a poker run soon. Vinny Raficee's 36 is almost done as well. There is also a new 46 turbine hull thats in the rigging department too. The last Drambuie SKATER is there too. Did I mention that they build there own trailers at the plant too!!!! As well as there own machine shop were they make alot of there own parts. Thanks for the hospitality guys.

I'd be very happy with a 28 or the NEW 30" which is going to be a bad ass piece. Its going to be offered as a cut doun deck double wide 1/4 canopy which is going to be awesome. Someday I'll have one. They are also working on the new 36 Plug too, it is also going to be quite the piece. It is UNBELIVEABLE to see all the different ways that they cut up there boats to style them different.

yes, it was a full double canopy with gull wing doors for the back seats. It was just being fitted for the doors. It was just finishing the glass work the hadn't started rigging. I think it was going some whereelse to be rigged. I don't know who's bull it is, do you?

Are you sure that it was a 46'?

There is a new 40' leaving there Monday.

Maybe it was a 40' I could be wrong. The new 36 has high sides out of the mold and I think is a little wider but not sure of that.
