Karen and I saw a 32 Skater Yesterday named Tom Cat with a BIG Grumman F-14 Tom Cat Fighter Jet painted on the side.

It was very cool looking....

Was that your paint job ????

Jeff,
Questions for you. You know the tug boat yard on the canal. They have no wake signs posted. I called the DNR last year to try and confirm if you need to go slow or not. They would not commit. I always slow down there but almost always get run over by other boats. I look at as I don't have to pay their ticket. What is your take or what do you do?

I didn't notice the sign last season, but I did see it our first time out this spring. It's so far over to the left and so small that it looks as if it only applies to boats heading into that boat yard. I haven't noticed boats slowing down that far out, but maybe they've already slowed down by the time Jeff blows by them. :confused:

No, The paint scheme was by Dean Loucks (TAOD). He is responsible for most of the high end work out of Skater. He's extraordinarily talented. I saw the scheme in process at the factory when I was having a lunch with Peter Hledin. It was really cool.
