Offshore Legends Series: Charlie McCarthy, Part...

Luck of the Irish on St. Patricks Day? SOS: It was 1979 I believe when you burst on the scene in the Open Class and shocked the offshore world with a win out of no-where. Everyone was waiting for the showdown between Betty Cook in Kaama and Joey Ippolito in Michelob Light, just like the previous year's season long battle. But a first time open class racer from the...

And extraordinary is the perfect word to describe this Skater beauty. We are kind of hoping they name it “Fifty Shades of Grey”. Seems perfect for...

Bobkat Offshore Racing "STIHL" 2015,...

A couple weeks ago we had the opportunity to chat with Bob "JR" Noble, Mark Kowalski, and Dave Hutchinson while they were visiting Skater to check up on both of their team's boats. It was a slight bit colder up here than in Florida when they left. (Mark just had to drive over from Ohio). The current boat, damaged in Key West as most will remember, was almost ready to take home for final...

Offshore Legends Series: Charlie McCarthy,...

Charlie McCarthy, both an Icon and Founder here on Serious, was one of the group of adrenaline junkies who decided that offshore racing would be the focus of a desire for speed as a first choice. It was not the only choice, as he has raced automobiles on tracks and across the country. Including in the Cannonball Run made so famous by Burt Reynolds and Farrah...

Pure Platinum, Refined Perfection of An Earth...

Many times we hear about “The 1%” in today’s news stories. When it comes to scarcity however, Platinum is found in only .01 parts per million of the earth’s crust, making it one of the planets most elusive elements. In the 18th Century, platinum’s rarity made King Louis the XV of France declare it “the only metal fit for a king”. So, when Bill Pyburn collaborated with Peter Hledin to produce...

Skater's All New 478 Raised Deck Vee

As we spend time at Skater watching custom boat after custom boat being built, every once in awhile a completely new design floors us.

Now, Skater has done it again. The new 478 we have watched for the past 8...
