Great job! I am getting ready to start restoring a '79 Monza 24. I look forward to seeing test results on yours so keep us posted. I will post pics of my project as it goes on. This is a before pic.

Thank you very much guys. Wow I thought the 24 was gonna be enough but you never know. Iam counting the days to get her wet. My goal is that 75+ and maybe from what you guys say it is posible. I just hope I dont have any balance issues because the boat was built for outboard. The cabin is strip down to the fiberglass and completly empty.

Can't wait to see the running pics.

I just started on my 24' Pantera a few weeks ago - hope it comes out just as nice as your Monza!

I hope mine turns out half as nice as yours, great work. I like the rigging job, very clean. Did you do the paint work yourself?

Great job, a 24' Monza was my first offshore, good I loved that boat. Brought the hull bare and did it all myself back in the early 80's - diesel of course the only way to travel!!!!

I ran that boat over to Nassau a couple times, what a great ride.

Great boat enjoy it and win a couple for Me!!!

ps here is my old Monza back in the day!

Benny,
Looks great! What are the rules for your class "D"? In OPA, your boat would be ideal in class "6".
