Anyone else see the missed opportunity to really introduce this boat at the Bimini Race this weekend?

A. Lots of free press
B. Event in your backyard
C. Great 100 mile shakedown run before European racing begins
D. 4 days after you shipped the boat anyway
E. Cheap event, not like you need a whole pit crew/lodging etc.

Pantera would have been the talk of the event!

Being that the boat is going overseas, probably never to be back in Miami I would see no issue in having the factory put a couple hours on it (and then fixing anything that comes loose/breaks) before shipping it across the Atlantic!

Better yet for the owner, fly here and run the boat with the Pantera boys, now that is a boat launching done right!

What if nothing was loose or broken when it shipped but then first race it broke... Paying all that money I'd be pissed off!

I guess it depends what mood I was in but taking delivery the only person I want driving my boat is ME and wouldn't want to hear it was driven for testing purposes in a race!
