This the old Recovery that was sold to Ohio steel.Al copeland now owns this boat.

I was told from Joey that it was an out in out PIG.It didnt handle like they thought.I think it was more of a CG issue with the boat instead of an aerodynamic problem.

Too Old,

No pricing on the listing I found these pics at. Try www.lakecumberlandmarine.com. There was not any pricing listed for this boat but look for a number if you really want the price. Hope this helps.

Ever since Peter saw the saw the Bullet 130, his deck lines started taking a sloping shape....

Anyone ever run a single outboard on a 24 Skater????? I know they did it on the 21' but never have seen it on the 24'. I would think it would run pretty well.

The 46' that Copeland has was never rigged before he purchased the boat. It was one of the first of the "Cut Down Decks".

The "Ohio Steel" boat was sold to Wil Wingert who has been trying to convert it to Turbines.

Both boats look very similar but they are different. No handling problems with Copelands.

The 24' in the photo's is merely a flat decked 24'. Nothing more/less

When the boat is running at the proper attitude, the nose would probably be level creating less downforce on the nose but more lift at the stern as the air flows over its wing shape design it creates lift.

Just to use the Bullet as an example.
Seeing it on the trailer everyone says the same thing. "Damn that bow dives down sharply."

But look close at the pics and the boat has the bow level....

Yes DPT.

There was one at the SOB Awards with I think a 300 X with a shorty midsection on it. Was running in the 80's I believe?
