When was the last time Active Thunder built the 25? I don't see it on their website anymore. I don't know if I can trust their website, though, because their Flash intro says "2003"!

A.T. doesn't build the 25 anymore I think the last one was around 99. It was and still is one of the best big water boats in the size range, Fast with alot of freeboard and a useable cabin. Pat stopped building it because of the 28 and the difference in costs didn't make sense to keep it going.

What did a 25 Active Thunder prove in F-1? I know Gordo use to race one. That's all I know

I have been thinking about taking on the Activator boat line, I think they would do well in this area! as long as I dont have to stock a ton of them! Do you know anyone that could supply motors??

I chose a 24 Velocity over the Pantera back in 98' because it was a much bigger 24' with a deep cockpit and a decent size cabin which fit my needs at the time.
I never rode in a 24 Panera but I am sure they are night and day to drive and in handling.
I would think a 25' Sunsation Agressor would be a more comparable boat as they are closer in dimentions.
