Liberator? skater copykat
It looks to be I/O by the the size of the skeg. so that kinda rules out a 28 skater for the most part. I know liberator does twins. As does Spectre. Skater did a few many moons ago.
The portion of the top deck DOES look like a spectre? Look at the attatched photo
Spectre smallest cat is a 30' however
Yes it can get rough.
It truly was the only place I have ever thought twice about my cat in the real rough.
Especialy right at the corner of Slaty dog and topsiders.
It is BAAAADDDDD
So glad everyone is OK

Big wakes can do that.
The Staten Island ferry wake can catch a boat in the curl and roll it easy. Glad to hear everyone is ok.

Sorry to hear. Glad no one was hurt. That'll ruin your day.

That's a spectre, it's actually from Tampa, I see him running around here a lot...either that or he sold it to someone near LOTO.

Sure glad to hear that everyone is OK.

Things at LOTO just keep getting worse. Bigger and bigger boats/cruisers turning over the huge wakes and when you get several running close to each other it is terrible. Have a friend at about the 14MM in Pota Cima, right off the main channel, when he got home last saturday afternoon he found his boat lift was broken on 3 or the 4 corners. Not sure that a change of the seawall regs will affect anything at this late date. Dang where is that 46er I was looking at???

I flew down to LOTO for a party a few weeks ago. My first trip to LOTO. I was in a friends 36 Outlaw and he probably never went over 50mph because of the chop. Serious boat chop on that lake!

I dont think who makes the boat once your loosing it has anything to do with it. A flip or roll is just that regardless weather its a Skater,Spectre,eliminator etc. Now ladyluck is riding on weather you survive the impact,but your most likely gonna already be outa the boat.

there is only one real race cat in my mind...Skater...it's saved my life twice.

A sincere thanks to all the crew at Big Thunder, and Peter from Skater for building real race boats and supporting race enthusiasts

Remember the water is why we all love the ozarks,

see you all down the middle of the channel...
