I think I was mistaken on the Jaws boat. I thought they ran a 28 Skater at some point.
The pics above of Body shot are the ones I am interested in.
Does anyone know the history of that boat? How many seasons did it race, who rigged it, re-rigged it ect?

I've only seen the race boat lately but stop at Wesco now and then bet I'll run into it soon!

Tantrum,

Actually you are not mistaken. The Bodyguard 28 skater that HotDuck posted was the original 28skater that was later sold to the guys that ran a 30' phantom with twin Mercs on the back of it. I do remember seeing them with the 28 at a few races but not to many. They also had a 32' Superboat I believe. Try Darren Luhr's website, he has many picks from the old New Jersey Races on file on that site. If I get a chance to find some for you I will post them.
