skaters layups are not my fav...due to epoxy lay up. the 28 in my opinion isnt as good of a riding boat as the 30 either. have been in both a few times

I would own a 40 or 36 Skater, anything under that size I wouldn't. I would own a Spectre. When Jay finishes the 42' then I would probably only own Spectres. I love my 30'. The difference is just size. The 28' Skater is much smaller but faster, hell a lot of them run 115 plus plus, but the room, dash layout on a 30' and over all size can't be beat. The 30' Spectre with outboards is the best 100mph value on the water, In my opinion. Great boat and great service from the factory. Jay does a hell of a job.

I have a 28, it hops from 55 to 70, more like 15mph hop. When I dont have any weight in the boat the hop seems to calm down more.

Cant beat the 30 and especially when you factor in the $cost. Wind deflector is a must Berns! Worth every penny.

HELP ME SELL MY BOAT!

Are you the second owner of that boat or is it the same one that has been for sale for a while now? Nice looking 30'.
