I thought it might have been you. I was pretty young in '82 and '86 (the time of those vids) so I have a bit of a hard time remembering hanging out at the key west worlds in those days

Now that was funny!!!!

I totaly agree with you regards Pantera and the Pepe Nuņez family.
With their philosophy, attitude, experience and big racing hearts It can't go wrong.
I have a modest rigged 24 Pantera my self besides my race boat and all I can say is to put i bigger
power in her and get to race!

The other interesting thing about this............

Many years ago I worked in a boat yard as an outboard mechanic...... I actually went to Mercury's school at that time.

The boat yard?

K&K Outboard.......

I've known Kenny and Jeff since they were in pre school. I was very proud of them in those races...and I guess it showed. I am , after all, a bit of a "homer".

Default 26 Corsa

The 26 Corsa is actually 24' 10" as measured by Gene Whip repeatedly!

They are great! Of all the boats I have raced borrowed etc it is the one I cannot sell. They just work. I was running 80 yesterday in 2' seas showing a drag racer how to drive a boat.

It is still in the water and I am taking it to get some breakfeast.

I don't have much to compare but I loved the way my old 245 Chris Craft limited with a BBC, handled.

Also my friends 23ft Nova handles the snot pretty well ('08 LG Fun Run)
