This is a pic .that was taken at a New York race around 1980.28 powered with triple Merc. outboards.We would mount them on the transom back then.


This boat was cored with Airex.

This is a picture of a 24 Sport cockpit in 1977 - 78.Check out the cockpit floor made out of teak and cabin door.The bucket were also very popular at the time.They were swivel mounted on a slide.

Check out the covico wheel.Still being used today.

Also the Mercury throttle .

This boat is still around located up in the Seattle, Washington area.

Wardey brought up a good point. With all the insane cost of new boat and depressition of them. If you look at the price these boats when they where new. They are bringing just as much used and 20 years old now. Shows you can't go wrong with a good quality boat.

Great pics, Jo. Your family has a lot to be proud of!

Is Too Old a closet Vanilla Ice Fan? Didn't he have purple interior in his Pantera too?

JO,

Your pictures, especially the Family collections, bring to mind the "good stuff" about America. With all the horrid things taking place today, like the innocent people gunned down in Maryland etc., Here on these pages you present the essence of Americana. A hard working Family, working together, staying together, building a quality product that you stand behind.

You deserve more than congratulations, for within your Family at least to me, is alot of what the Red White and Blue stands for.

So glad to have met you and your Family, raced against you, and yeah, beaten by you

Take care,

Steve David

Steve, You have made me feel 10 feet tall, indeed I am a blessed man! When you have a strong family unit you can face anything, as I have. I have had the fortune of having the best son and daughter a dad could hope for, and on top of that I have a wife that makes me so very proud, for it is her that that has made my life, the best life a man could hope for!!! Yes I am a lucky guy!!! You are correct: GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pepe Pantera.

Pepe and Jo, I always have had the upmost respect for your boat's, and now that I have learned through this board a little about your Family and that your a Family owned business (Much like my own) I have even more!!

I hope to own one of your boat's one of these day's!!

I was at the Miami Boat Show and drove by the shop, now I wish I would have stopped by, Next time I will!!

Fred (not too old) Was your boat the "Ice, Ice Baby" Boat? Or did it just have the same color interior?
