Default 42 mcmanus commanches

Okay...how many 42 Commanches are out there? Who's got pics. My favorite one was seen a couple years ago stripped for about 75k no motors. All I know is it had orig. cobra blown motors and had liike 3 or 4 blue stripes across the back and the owner was from Taquesta, Fl. I think John Pompi rigged it. Pics?
Others: Team Prime, Off Duty (now P1 pace boat), The one from NY w/wolf mural...maybe warcry? ( this guys brother had Ultimate Warrior 41 Apache), Snakebite maybe, Cochise, any others and pics of all? Let's see'em!

There is a a pretty good couple of handfuls of them.....War Dancer was/is an Apache with a different fairing put on it at a later date when it was redone could be wrong but don't think so.....The P1 pace boat was the original one I and it went from there

Off Duty, built for Fred K, Twin 800Sc & 6's. All the switches had cartoon characters......I believe.
Also, I remember an article in one of the powerboat mags where it raced a Ferrari (down the Keys?) I hope some one has that article and posts it up. Couple of them had 3 engines & 6's.

SnakeDance...yes staggered 525s. Memory is coming back a little. Now that I remember, I think it was Megatoy...this was maybe the first (1991) 42 Commanche w/ triple 1000s and later converted with 2 side by side 1000 Teagues repainted all white w/ yellow interior. Mcmanus site has one hull listed I think used to be the triple Team Prime boat now cut for 2 side by sides. I see Geico has an orange one...which one did this use to be? Wasn't Cochise a 42 Commanche?

There were 2 42 triples.....Team Prime and the other one belonged to a french guy and then it went through Arrudas hands to Geico to a guy named Jay that has it now and it was converted to twin side by side
