Tunnel vision was a 28 with a big hawk power and big drive. The engine was on rails so they can slide foward and back. Then with a change of a shaft, they were able to run flat and rough water races.

Neat idea with the rails, wonder how it worked out.

I saw plum loco in the title and figured we were talking 24s. These old pantera raceboats are cool boats thats for sure.

It was one of the only single engine boats in the B-class back than. If I remember correctly is basically had an open class motor in it.

Yep! It had some damage and they ran it until it basically sunk.
