the owners of both the pantera and the fastec have contacted me in the last 24hrs and are ready to make deals...353 fastec i think is gonna be just a lil to big to be a trailer queen 3 times a weekend, so the Pantera may have come back in the picture

The Pantera would be awesome if it was a single or twin SBC set up, but will feel way smaller than the other boats. I don't nessesarily mean the ride characteristics but how you feel in the boat, Pantera has pretty low gunnels
I'm not much of a Formula person but they have great amenities and a lot of room.
That's too bad about the Cig , that would have been the best choice.
The 33 Scarab is nice and fast (well faster than the old 31's)but the Formula might be the best choice out of the 3 .

If you have already have a vehicle capable of towing the 353 properly, you'll never regret buying the extra length. Doesn't the 353 include an integrated platform in it's length which is at least 18" of false length anyway?
