It was an easy question, the kind almost any boat owner could answer without hesitation. And yet for Ron Szolack, the well-known Detroit-based performance boat enthusiast who goes through new and used go-fast boats—in particular catamarans from Skater Powerboats—faster than most folks go through shoes, it was a genuine stumper.
“I have no idea how many boats I’ve owned,” he said. “Maybe 30 or 40 or 50? I’ve probably had at least 30 Skaters. I have owned every single model they make multiple times.”
To his credit, Szolack had no trouble recalling the first go-fast boat he purchased—and that was 15 years ago.
