This is an article that was done on the 24 Sport in Go Boating Magazine in 1978.


They gave us a great write up.

This is my Father and Ralph Linero getting their first place trophy in a 1976 race.

My Dad had a full head of hair back then.

Ralph is still in the marine buisness working at TNT custom rigging.

He was my Fathers Navigator for a few years and was the Navigator when my Father broke the Miami to New York outboard record in 1978 with the 24 Pantera pictured in this thread.

This picture was taken at a boat show in 1978 with customers reading articles on the record run from Miami to New York.

We sold many 24s back then and produced 100 24s a year.2 boats every week were delivered all around the world.
