Damn, that does not look good. I remember that boat from the DS street fair. Hopefully the missing female is found soon...

There was a few boats out running around for a fundraiser. Not sure how long the new owners have been running but it was purchased from a gent here in the bay area... I got nothing to add to the topic all let the others in the know chim in... just a very sad deal😢

From OSO

For anyone that may have heard, please do not post anything about the accident that happened today with the new owner
of my formerly-owned Skater 30 Prototype. I will post what happened with this tragic event when my head is clear tomorrow. I had befriended the new owner and his girlfriend, and they were staying with us this weekend for the poker run event today. Tonight we are grieving the loss of Nancy, and Stephan is in the hospital, but in stable condition. Please, please, please be considerate everyone, I do not want misinformation spread and I will let everyone know the best of what I know after I am finished dealing with what I have to deal with tomorrow. It was a single boat accident that nobody witnessed, with only Stephan and Nancy on board. This is the toughest day I have ever had boating, when I don't come home with all of my friends that I left with in the morning............

Stephan (the owner) lives down the street from me and is really good friends with life long friends of ours. @lake p.a.l. is very good friends with Dale, who’s house Stephan and his girlfriend were staying this weekend (and who wrote the post Dan copied from OSO). Performance boating community is pretty small. Hate it when this happens. 👎 our best wishes and prayers with all those touched by this.

Stephan is in surgery for leg problem. Girlfriend is still missing. No details what happened. Dale is beyond devastated. A few of them helped recover the boat & turned it over to sheriffs department.
Plz be safe everyone

This sucks to read. A couple enjoying the day and now lives are hurt for years!
Getting over losing someone you love IMO is on of the hardest things to do, especially when they leave you in a situation like this. Thoughts with family and friends!

I still remember reading the story on that boats complete remodel.

Again? Really?
that boat got damaged during one of the Big Cats PokerRun.
Went from a dual canopy setup to a full windshield with outboards. The transformation was insane

It was fully rebuilt after initial accident with incredible 800hp Sterling motors for many years. Converted to outboards just a few years ago

Is there another skater that looks just like this?
I have seen a skater that’s either this one or identical to it at pirates a couple
Times. Last weekend to be exact.

This one says "Prototype" on the sides right under the Skater logo.

@PlanB couldnt see the prototype on it. But if it wasn’t it there’s one that has th same wxact color scheme with the same motors on it. I loved seeing the boat if that was or sucks to see that somethin happened to it and the people in it!

The one that went over the top of the DCB that just crashed in Parker? If so that’s crazy.


RIP to poor lady in the boat.

I'm glad they found her in a timely manor. Sad deal, people just out for a fun day. 😢

It was mentioned above, this boat being at Pirate's. I am sure it was out a week or so ago, tied off to the end of one of the rental slip docks. Beautiful setup. I remember seeing the "prototype" lettering, set it apart a bit from the others.

I hope the owner's surgery goes well. He'll have enough to deal with mentally with the rest of this tragedy.

Sad outcome but glad she was found.

The scheme on this boat was one of my favorites when I first saw it. Prayers for the families.

This was at the Unleashed Poker Run last Friday. I believe this was the second year, The Big Cat run is August 12-14. This has been a very sad year for what has happened in our boating community.
