Tantrum I believe Jaws did run a 28' skater back eather
US Offshore or /and APBA . I think they progressed through different classes and hulls over the years.
Al F. out of NY owned Body guard and also had a few different boats . The last one being a state of the art
skater duel canopy witch he ran then believed sold the team.
Both were Great teams and ran each event hard. Jo

Tantrum,

The JAWS boat pictured above is the SUPERBOAT Cat I told you about this morning. After they raced it, they sold it and bought the above BODY GUARD and renamed it JAWS. The BIG JAWS they are referring to is the one that runs in OPEN/SUPERBOAT Class.

S-69 BodyGuard, most recently this canopied Skater, was recently sold overseas. Mark House, of VA, aka 'skater' of OSO, is currently looking into another class of boat racing.

Al Faela does not own it any longer. I believe it is owned by Dave Horstman. He live in NJ and I believe owns a recycling business of sorts.

The canopied boat above is a one off 30 footer with a widened tunnel.

If my memory serves me correct I think the 30" Canopy boat pictured above went over seas.

I know the 28' was later sold to the Jaws team and was raced a few times by then. A local friend who owns a marina in my area did a few powerheads for the Jaws team.
