Default Canopy or non Canopy 32'? Have you rode in either? And who...

I need input here. I have only been in canopy Skaters, never the older style. Can some of you tell me is the vision better? But it is terrible because of the wind? Or go canopy and don't even look at not canopy boats?

Can anyone tell me this guys e-mail or how to get a hold of him? Or any history on the boat?

A qtr canopy boat is more expensive new. If u are planning running fast, you have no option.

It depends on how you enjoy the "feeling" of going fast. 100mph with no windshield/canopy can pump more adrenaline sometimes than doing 130 with canopies.

I've been in Nauti Kitty's 32 at 125 or so (could barely see the speedo ) with no windshield of any kind. Bring your shades!

I have two 1/4 canopys in the center of my Skater.The back
rear outer seats are not covered by front seats or canopys.

When I have passengers who ride in these seats they cannot shut there mouths if they open them up.
There faces resemble a cross between a alien and a blowfish


I am looking for options to convert to a full canopy.

I have had both. One downside with the canopies is they are hot, when you are in no wake zones you fry.
