Which boat to buy, 40 Skater or 39 MTI?
OL has always described their equipment as an autoclave….and purchased it used from the original Ten Cara assets as I recall. In truth the OL process of heated pre-preg is a step beyond normal vacuum bagging. My issue with the OL cat is that the basic design is not as fast as others….or so it would seem based on the spectacular lack of OL cats on the water after an initial flurry of enthusiasm. If I am wrong please correct me, but there has been startling silence about real world numbers with this cat. OL has made a great v bottom for years, although the pricing has always left me scratching my head….I think the OL cat broke the back of the price point bar without delivering what cat buyers want most…….speed and unique design. The Skater by comparison has so much hand work after molding that you couldn’t bake it or infuse it. However, Skater’s vacuum bag hulls have been as light as anything that stays together over the years…….. As I said there were early pre-preg hulls t
