Happy to hear someone else is building one for racing. There boats performed flawlessly this year. I am sure it had to do alot with Jim Dyke over seeing the entire deal.

I saw a new silver Rage at the shop when I was there Thursday. They were still working on buffing the silver awlgrip to perfection when I saw it. It's going to be a sharp looking boat when it's done. I kind of like the paint color.

The boat is currently being rigged at Platinum. Like I said, the paint is metallic so the picture doesn't really capture it all that well. With the competitive nature of offshore racing being what it is, I don't think I can say at this time what sanctioning body the boat will be racing with. I don't know if the owner has gone public with his plans to compete yet. I'm sure we'll be seeing plenty of press coverage of this boat in the coming season.

I got some other shots, but nothing all that nice to look at. I got a couple shots of Popeye, but they were working on it so the pictures are nothing special. I couldn't really get any nice shots because I don't have a wide angle lens and the boats are placed pretty close together in the shop. The shots of the silver rage are the best ones I could get. Everything else is just bits and pieces and crazy angles.

Yeah, I hope that people start to recognize what Platinum is doing too. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but in my opinion the Platinum Rage looks so much nicer than a Skater or an MTI.

Skater is currently running ads saying that it takes more than speed to stand out in a crowd. Well, it does take more than speed. Instead of dropping 50K on paint, or having Skater chop your deck down, buy a Platinum. You could get the boat painted all white and you would still get more attention than a Skater or MTI at the dock. Plus, you could enjoy superior hadling while you're schooling all the other cats getting to the next card stop.

But then again, I'm not exactly the kind of person who actually has the money to buy one of these things. I guess I just don't understand why everyone wants to follow the crowd. Maybe if I was rich I would understand.
