I'm back in the game!!!

Well, some said it would never happen, but I'm finally back in the game - I bought a 24' Pantera.

Yes, this is the one that has been passed around OSO like a groupie on the Motley Crue tour bus.:D

Previous owners:
- Dude!!Sweet!!
- NickK
I made the run from Cinci to St Louis and back yesterday to meet up with Nick, and after 14 hrs on the road she was in my driveway last night.
I'm pretty pleased with the boat, and already spent the morning planning my modifications:D
Hopefully do a shakedown run next weekend.
Wanna say thanks to Nick, Sean, and Chris for answering all my questions before I bought it site unseen.
And just by looking at the glass layup in the bilge, you can tell what a wave crusher this is gonna be.
I'm dying to get her out on the water, but too worn out from yesterday. Just want to do a little polishing and familiarize myself with it today.

I was boatless for 5 yrs.
Felt like my arms fell off.
Started at age ten, and 26 years on the water. It get's in your blood.
Good luck in your search - I followed this one through three owners, and jumped on it as soon as I saw it was up for sale.

It's IRONMAN's old boat.
As history goes, he did the majority of work to it.
Installed the Bravo, and at one time had a huge motor in this, but swapped it when he got his 28'.
NickK said he was seeing 60 out of it with a 23 Mirage+ - it may have room for more.
Haven't even gotten it on the water yet. Next weekend.
Dude!!Sweet!! did the exhaust - which it sounds freekin killer!!
Nick - thanks for including the mufflers - hope I never need them:D
I'm just jacked that I once again have something to waste all my money on - one penny at a time:D

I can't wait to ride on it and drink all your beer one day!

You'll have to make it out this way - or verse- vicea, or whateverer- or I need to make it out to your camper and hang out for a weekend.:D
And the beer thing is easy.
