Typically you see less and less of these because the third engine takes a tremendous beating. Many guys have opted to just pull the center engine right off becuase of the expense of the repairs and the downtime.

Not to mention insurance is already a problem with cats, especially when you say Skater. Tell them you have triples and watch the dollar signs go!

Actually, the twin engine variant (32 Skater) is what I was interested in, so I guess the 'problem with the boat' comes down to just an availability issue as most 32s were rigged as triples.

Gonna have to ask the quad 2.5 32 owner just how scary the insurance is!!!

Could you please tell us how your 32 with twins runs. Acceleration, top speed and prop selection. I'm considering this setup. Thanx

I think its been closer to 2 years on that boat.
I made an offer and cant even get a response or counter offer.
At his asking price and now lack of response, I dont think he really wants to sell the boat.

The 32's that Ive found are all tripple set-ups, or late 80's repowered boats.
Im looking for clean '98 or newer model. In the Skater relm, my budget puts me in a 28.
Im pretty well hooked on the Skater but one of the concerns is the 28 foot length. Even Skater is stepping up with the 30 footer. Im concerned how that will effect the market the 28's in a year or 2.

Anyone know the performance numbers on these rigs.
What are the speeds of the AMT/Spectre w/ 300x's?

Since you never made a single appearance with your boat all summer, work on getting a sled and we will see who the MEN are. If you want Ill even talk to Jen for you and ask if its okay for you to buy one........tough guy.
