The spitfire you have pictured had a decent wake as well. Small small boat. Always had a soft spot for them. (Family has owned 4 Sea Rays)

My wife's uncle has a 93 Ski Ray OB. Nice boat and has run strong for over 20 years. Wake is not the smallest, but I have seen worse. AWSA approved and both had a good write up in 93 (back when WSM used to actually compare boats).

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Good info guys. Maybe we should have a thread for unique/strange inboards from the 80s and 90s.
