    Default Went boating Saturday

    Aaaaahhhhh, went for a few nice runs with my brothers boat. Temp was 35 degrees, turned a 22 pitch at 8700 rpm and we are trying to get it dialed in. Probably the last run for this year. He has a Skater 18 with a center pod.

    Numbers? Speed? Or are you to cold still? Leave us with a cliff hanger like that.

    Well not the greatest numbers but we are still setting it up. We have a 2:1 gearcase on it so 79 was the top speed. It was on pump gas and less than a 1/4 mile. Can't wait until spring to try the 15 x 32 cleaver.

    Yes a 1979 18 Skater with the center pod. The boat still hops a lot and we are working them out.

    He got the boat this spring and Skip Terbeck (SP) had it. We are interested in different set ups for it. Please email me at [email protected] with info. Thanks!!
