Default 308 Skater 400r video

Here is some video footage of testing day 1 that I was lucky enough to attend. Congratulations to Bill on his Repower a first step in the journey as I say.
I will let him take it from here!!!!

I wasnt there Ron got to run my boat before me. Yes it had 300xs before and ran about 100 on good days, 95 with people and fuel ect. It runs much faster now we have just started to test but i will say it was worth the money. I will let you know speeds when we finish dialing it in. Again ron knows more than me from driving the boat. Picking it up next week and coming back to NY.

Very Interesting..... I will be very curious to see what the actual difference is between the 300xs and these 400's in Speed, Handling, Fuel Burn, ect....

Please keep us updated on the progress. Did they move any weight around in the boat when they did the re-rig?
