Default Go to this site...

Go to this site Phantom

to see more pictures of the Phantom. Yes, the windscreen is bolted on.

I worked on this boat prior to Jim (Jr.) and can tell you that the bottom is very straight and it runs good. Believe it or not, this boat didn't have full length stringers. That was one of the first things we did...install stringers and a new floor. Our first test run with very mild rebuilt 454's netted us 60mph. Since then, Jim Jr. has put in alot time to rebuild the engines (better) and redo alot of the upholestery.

Look at all of the pictures on our projects page.

Thanks LakeRacer It does resemble the Powerplays, but the title of the boat actually show the manufacterer as Phantom Boats Inc. It also has a manufacturer plaque in the boat at the helm that reads Phantom Boats Inc.. To date, the most fuel I have put on board is 120 gallons and the boat sat level. I can't even imagine filling it up. Maybe the extra cargo balanced it out I have not had it on the ocean yet, but I have not found to much lake water here in Arizona that affects it. It's a nice smooth ride. Poker runs are a blast in it!!

I am in the process of building new engines and refurbishing it and was just curious about it's history. I don't know if there is any connection with the current Phantom company but any information or leads would be appreciated.
