Default Phantom boats?

I own a 1980 Phantom. The model is a 30 Ghost and I was wondering if anyone could lead me to some information or history of the company and boat. All I know is that it came from Florida and was purchased in a D.E.A. auction. It has TRS drives and Merc trannies. It also has a 600 gallon fuel tank and lots of cargo room. 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.

Thanks Steve, hopefully this works: http://arizonahotboats.com/projects/phantom1.jpg
If it doesn't, it can also be seen on arizonahotboats.com under the projects area on the main page. There are a lot more pics of it in various stages. I am actually making more changes as I go along and get new ideas.

Thank you,
Jim

Steve, the first three letters are PHU. Thanks Jon. I did here at one time from someone that they saw another one of these hulls in a boat yard full of bullet holes, but that is here say. Sounds interesting though.

I am probably wrong but it looks like a CBBRA/POWERPLAY in 1980 PP wasn't around yet.

600 gal gas tank? Let's see gas weights = approx 6 lbs per gallon, so 600 gal x 6 lb/gal = 3600 lbs I guess that's why he got caught , maybe??
