This pic. was taken in St. Tropez, France by our dealer over there in 1992.He was in a 28 with a custom made 6 man bolster that is seen in the first few pages of this thread.


You will see also a 41 Cougar in the background.

This pic. was taken at the Miami SBI race this year in April when we ran a 28 powered with the Dodge Viper motor.We led the race until the last lap when the forward gear let go on the Bravo 1.

We may do some more R and D work with the Viper motor real soon.

This is a great picture from Key West World Championships in 1990.It is a customer of ours running a 28 with triple 2.4 Mercs.
turning at the wall on the outside leg.


Check out the Navigator in the picture.He said the hell with it I am hitting the floor.

This is a picture of my Father in the first 24 Pantera race boat in 1975.It was called Macho.


I pulled this picture of the original frame to post here so it is a little on the rough side.


This race went from Miami down to Alligator light in the Florida Keys and back.This boat was powered with a 460 CI Ford with a Volvo outdrive.

Top speed was 65 MPH.
