This is fun, I would say that all the custom guys must be well built or they could not be in business. And I will say that they must be better than the production shops for the same reason. But no one (few) know about the small custom artist. So everyone, lets see all the cool stuff out there, lets see your best pics.

The TUFF 21 is related to the Challenger, The TUFF 28 is completely original and designed specifically to be what it is, and it is different in every dimension than anything else.

Here is my lay-out notice the split foot throttle

Seeing as Tuff boat won't brag, the 28 is 100% original, CAD and CNC.
The Tuff 21 is similar to the Challenger, but with a improved (in my opinion as a original Challenger owner) bottom, strakes, and pad. Totally new deck. These guys know there stuff, and I am not a customer. I just happen to have a lot of years in this business and appreciate a fine product.

Thanks, mild 540 with low boost, still tweaking, ran high 70's yesterday with the 100 degree heat, low 80's when conditions are right.

Pantera is not the fastest hull around, but 95% of my time is at cruise anway
