Default Skater Supreme

When passing the Skater plant this morning, I saw something I never thought I would:

A Skater with PORTHOLES!

When I went back to take some pictures, it was gone.

I think it was a 46, and has Arnesons. Beautiful paint, and named "Skater Supreme."

Anybody know more?

The original Skater Supreme was a Torque v12 project boat with Sage drives. It has been repowered twice...first to 1300 Sterlings ...and more recentlly to diesels I believe.

Does the boat below look like what you saw?

P.S. Buy a Skater

Our tests on that boat were inconclusive...... due to an awkward fire in the transmission.... which almost got serious.

Powerboat tested it with The STerlings in big seas and saw over 130......

I think more R&D, a top shop, and a good budget will yield very interesting results.
