cool,my next question was gonna be if the 27 Mag was a progression of that boat. I doubt there has ever been as successful of a hull as that one (24 or 27).

I too love the beautiful sound of a I/O BUT... I will say that I have grown to love the sound of nice high winding OB.
The 36 and new 41 Pantera would be a real nice package with OB's in my opinion.

Steve1 thank you again for all the info. you provide...a true credit to everything that is right about our beloved sport.

The 29 Magnum which was the mother of the 27 was a seperate project as I understand it from talking to Harry years ago,Like when they stuck the first 28 Cigarette and sunk the mold behind the place they went and got another 27 Magnum for a plug, Also Larry Smith drug one out to California as the basis of his Scarab line from what I was told also. While on the subject Giovanni tooled up a really cool deck for his bringing the 27 Magnum back on line, they said that there were 450 built back in the "Day".

After the 91 Race I talked in depth to Doc Magoon about doing a Miami To New York he was ready to go anytime.

What I had planned was a floating fuel tank that looked like a Big Cheetahcat and was going to try to make it straight through without refueling again the fuel consumption from the race was the basis of that strategy.I wanted to run outboards and the Doc was leaning to the inboards.
