So yesterday I just happened to see some pics of the new Predator 3 Skater 388 & I was wondering if it’s okay to post them up? Or if Gary or RiverDave would prefer that they’re not posted on here yet? But P3s new colors look nothing like the old P2.

I dont have a baller boat so forgive the question but...

Are baller boat typically tied to the trailer by the prop shafts? Maybe the strut between the drives makes it ok since the force from each strap is fighting the other one?

Trailer straps are on the corners like any other boat. Drives are tied that way when it is on the tilt.

Ive seen pics on Skater’s IG but it never included the rear to show name. This boat is so absolutely gorgeous is all i can say, believe it’s being powered by big cubic inches and big snails!!

Has the new Brummett TT engines like Don London's. Not huge cubic inches but huge hair dryers.

Beautiful looking boat. Doesn't scream Predator to me with those colors though. Gary losing his 'flashiness"? :D

The only real predator has a “Larry’s engine and marine” sticker on the side. The good ole days before they parted ways

When will this boat be in Tucson? I would love to see it. Have a couple buddies that live around the corner from you. Always wanted to come check out the last predators!

Let us all know when your going up there. Would love to see it run. I’m usually on the other side of the dam but would definitely make the trip to see it run

if I didn't know any better it looks like he just painted the old boat. Same old lines of a Skater with the same old seats and same 30 year old flat dash... IMO, not my cup of tea, so on and so on...

Sick boat. I drooled over it when I saw it for sale a while back. Had some big chief motors in it I believe. Can’t wait to see how it runs with twin turbos.

Since his last 2 were 40s and this is a 388 you're wrong. Why say anything at all if you don't like it just go onto the next thread. What boat do you have?

Awesome ride - newer technology and processes make the new or newer boats better. Very cool.

That's because you can't even afford the gas bill. That's a top 10 in the country, engineered boat. From speed to safety. You have no clue, best you sit this one out.
