My Motion and my friends have seen some harsh conditions and my 30 is a very light layup and have had no hull problems. Both are 2000 hulls.

What Motion are you looking at?

I don't have one in mind.

Have just started to learn about the motions.

I am glad to hear yours is running strong.

I thought an old race boat might be the way to go and do a conversion. Undy Trauth ran "Udderly Fantastic" in the mid ninties. I don't know what happen to that boat but there must be a few still out there.

I have to say guys.. that my 36' Spectre is one fabulous boat! The boat runs, the boat handles, the boat goes through almost anything my lake can dish out and it looks great with a Grafik EFX painht job. What more could you ask for! Checkout my avatar, that is my boat and I love it. I keep it on Smith Moutain Lake in my boathouse. It has 675 K.E.s and sportmasters with ITS running a 1:26 ratio with 15 1/2 X 36 lab referneced 4-blades. Today, with a 5/8 tank of fuel in sticky water with a lot of humidity with 2 people in the boat, it ran 127mph. I made 4 runs... North, South, East and West and got 127mph each time. Talk about happy! Next month, I may let Brian Jones of JMI punch it up to 845hp and put on a pair of Herrings.

Spectre Man,

Fantastic ride. I love the Spectres, I am just afraid they haven't been out long enough for the depreciation to catch up. I would agree that there is no comparison between the 36 Spectre and the 32 skater or 35 motion. The tunnel is much deeper on the Spectre and it has length.

Maybe if my friend could find an old beat up one with a tired drivetrain and torn interior Wish full thinking anyway, congrats on your 36.

I believe the 34 Activator cat is still for sale, anyone know the scoop on that boat (Billy Mauf's old race boat)?
