The only Pythons Jim built were the 18,20,24,34 and a couple 31 cats.

Tell Capt. Nabber Jason from Lake of the Ozarks says hi next time you see him. I'll take my 30 footer with a canopy and a 525EFFI please

So if the builder/owner of python boats has passed away and he never made a 30ft boat then what makes this a Python?

Tom bought the rights to the name after Jim passed. Tom doesn't have the mold for the 18 at his place I believe they are still south. I asked him the same thing about building me a hull after I gave up on my sweet 16. He might consider selling his 18 from what he tol;d me , if your interested.
This one is going to have twin 540 n/a's pushing 730 hp , going to use our TRS drives to do a fair comparision to our old hull and then upgrade to Conrads . I know old tech. but we like the fact there is a trans , and Bravos won't hold up. Never had a problem with the TRS's and we don't baby them either ,just ask around.

I have enough I am not using. Before Jim passed we had discussed me taking the molds but never did.
