That is the answer....he also makes the Seebold composite(not wood) Formula One tunnel hulls. Peter is up to try anything at any time...as long as it is well constructed, engineered, and competitive.

I read earlier on SOS Skater was going to build a 30' model. Any updates?

So, does that mean he is or is not making a large 50+ cat based on molds he acuired and then offering them under the Skater name? Or, is he making a boat another manufacturer? Just wondering as it sounded very cool and wanted to see what was going on.

No SKATER is not building the Airborne boats.
The 30' hull plug was just completed, probably tooling the mold now the first boat will probably be flat deck canopide boats. Looks very nice of course. But probably still along way off, several months.
