Thanks Guys !

There is a trick to getting the hull out of the mold with the recessed hull sides.We spray the mold, skin coat is applied, and then we put the part in to the hull, and then lamiate everything as 1 piece. Once the hull is pulled out of the mold minor cosmetics around the edges of the part are required. Like Paul Harvey says : And now you know the rest of the story !!!

We are the 1st company to attempt this unique style to a hull as far as I know. My Father and I like to be different !!! In today's market I feel you need to be very innovative.

Pictures do not do the recessed hull sides justice. I will post a nice video and quality pictures at time of sea trial. We have done alot of changes to increase performance and looks to our Pantera 28' model.

Regards,

JO

I am excited about this boat! I'm excited that your company built it! The industry doesn’t need another 1/2 million dollar cat or V. The only thing the industry was lacking was this boat! CONGRATS!

Let me know when you want me to test it???LOL

I look forward to seeing you in KW!
