The Miami to New York record holder was an outboard boat.

That is not the Miami to New York boat. That was another one of his race boats. The Miami to New York boat was all white with triple Mercs outboards. It had a special made top for it. If I'm not mistaken the boats number was 717 and had the Miami Dade fire fighter towards the front of it along as his daughters name on the fairing and rear. I have a pic but I can't post here. He has pics of it on FB.

This is the Miami to New York boat:

Yes that makes more sense. "unleashed" photo kinda made me wonder. I was told it was the 32 Scorpion ,as such was the record holder, I just was mistakenly sent this photo. That is such an awesome photo that all my sense of logic went out of the window!

That was me and Bruce Kreimeir in the pic of Unleashed. I worked with Julio in the mid 80's and ended up with the molds for the 21's and the 24's(the old Carerra molds). the 32' molds ended up at Condor and the 37' Mold is at a body shop - for sale for a $ 1000. The active thunder 36/37 came from the Scorpion 37, not the 32.

That bottom shot is Julio at the helm of a 38 Scorpion - the original 38' Pantera - that became the 38' Condor. Not to be confused with the 37' Scorpion "Diablo"

Did 'Unleashed' become 'Spirit of Naples'?
