Howard's 32 was (and still is) an awesome rig. I doubt anyone will ever attempt to break his Mississippi record. Hope you're enjoying your Skater/Arneson setup..........I owned this boat for about five years in the late 90s. Not real fast, like Rik said, but a real head turner and alot of fun. It got me into turbines. I now own Howard Arnesons 32' Skater that he ran up the Mississippi River for the world record. We just celebrated the 20th aniversary of his achievment. Oh ya, Hi Rik.
